I accumulated some dust on the CCD sensors in my Nikon D50.  I cleaned the low-pass filter and the mirror assembly today, by hand and without the help of an authorized Nikon repair technician.  It was very nerve racking, knowing one slip could destroy the D50.

A destroyed D50 would make me very sad and I would have to purchase a D200 immediately.  Maybe I should give the D50 a good poke in the eye.  Or perhaps not ... I think I'll keep my D50 in working order as a (very nice) 6.1MP backup camera once I get my fingers around that sweet D200 body I've been lusting after.  Only $1699 for the body ... if you can manage to find it in stock!
