Greetings from Maryland (DMV)

Been here for a few months but never really did an intro.

It started when I finally decided that I had enough money to get a DSLR. During my reasearch I settled on D3000 because I 'Just' needed "a" DSLR. Then reasearched some more, Rebel T3 was better for about a $100 more but only had 720p video. Saw that D3100 had 1080p video for about $100 more, researched some more saw D5000 refurb for about $500 with that hinge screen. Settled on it. Researched some more, decided to spend extra for my first DSLR which I would keep for a long time and get D5100 over the T3i for better ISO. Got the D5100, kept it for 14 days, got a better deal on K-x from Woot (18-55 and 50-200 Kit for $500), researched it and was surprised by the price and features. Sent back D5100 and have been with the K-x since. Since then have gotten the 55-300 DA L lens and now looking to acquire a 17-50 f2.8 and a 50 1.4 prime.
