I currently own the Nikon D50 along with several Nikon lenses. Next month I will be leaving for a vacation of a lifetime and would like to take along a second body (along with several memory cards).

Would there be any benefit to purchasing a D70s over the D50 (D200 a little too expensive)?

There are a few advantages to the D70s but nothing major. Is there something you feel that you're missing with the D50? If no then why pay more. If there is something you'd like to see on the D50 is it on the D70s?

I think you should get the D50 body. With D70 you will have to have new set of memory cards. I also was looking for second body for my D50 but I decided on the D200. Yes, it is lots of $$ but cheap for what you get. Faster focus, very strong and well built, five frame per second is superb, controls are very good particularly the three control buttons are god sent, very bright bigscreen.Only one thing I do not like about the D200 is the way itdrainsbattery.
