Made the shift x2

I'm gonna be asking more questions then contributing anything useful for awhile.
I'm a brand new dSLR user from the point-n-shoot Sony camp. I spent a few years behind an H50 spending more time learning settings and their relationships and general photograph composition before moving to a dSLR.

I opted for a K-x with the 18-55mm kit lens to start my journey. After the first few hours, the camera usage is very familiar, but I did run into a slight problem - see my thread in the beginner's forum.

My interests are in nature (animal and plant) photography, and I have two(2) young boys that are active with baseball, soccer, scouting, and TaeKwonDo - so you know what my needs in a camera are - the K-x appears to suit them well.
