New dSLR user here

Hi everybody. I am new to dSLR photography. Not new to digital though. I have a Panasonic DMC-LC20 2mp point-and-shoot with Leica glass since 2001.
I also have Sony DSC-S730.
I now own a Pentax K-x with the kit lens. (F 50mm f/1.7 on its way).
Pentax rocks. Such great speedy focus, accurate exposures.
I was stuck between the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi and the K-x. But after reading the review and threads on dPreview, and threads here, I made the right choice.
I am not a new reader btw. i have been using this site over 9 months, but I only registered today. rocks!

Welcome! You're especially going to enjoy that F 50mm- it's one of the sharpest 50mm's from Pentax!
