The only two vertical grips I know of are for the D100 and D200. My local camera store doesn't stock the D50 anymore, but they sell numerous accessories. Unfortunately, I don't see a vertical grip in that list either.
Please note: I am not endorsing this product, it was the first one I found when I searched.
Having dismissed battery grips as non-essential for years, when I finally went for one for my D200, I was amazed how much better it makes the whole camera feel. All in all, with large lenses on, the whole setup is much more balanced. The extended shooting capabilities with two batteries is just an added bonus. The only obvious down-side is the additional weight! However, I liked it so much I bought one for my second D200.
