Welcome. Which kit lenses did you get? The 18-55 and 50-200 or the 55-300? The K-x is certainly a good choice. You should practice with what you have right now. Read up on general photography. You need to learn the basic concepts. Aperture, Depth of Field, etc. In the meantime, the K-x has a number of modes that will handle most of that for you, so get out and shoot and take note of the settings the camera is automatically selecting.

This site certainly. Just do a search or look at some of the stickies in the general and beginners forums. I usually just do a search for the particular thing I'm looking for though. There are scores of photography sites. The following has several good write ups, one on using your metz flash will be very helpful.
