Hey Slowhike -- Hang on to the zoom lens and flash, and get a digital SLR
body (a D50 or D70). The zoom will be more "telephotoy" on the digital SLR (by
a factor of 1.5 -- in other words, a 50 mm lens will have an effective focal
length of 75mm on the digital). I got a D50 two-lens outfit about two months
ago and have been really impressed with the pictures I've got with it -- and
if you're used to a film SLR, the digital will seem like a "real" camera.
