Hello from Atlanta GA

I am a newbie to the DSLR world and my first is the K10D, (kit lens) I upgraded from a P & S, so I am looking to gain knowledge. going to be taking classes soon. My interests are in the following order

1) shooting sports events, (football and soccer)
2) macro
3) special events around the city, so I know that I want a powerful zoom lens
4) Architecture
5) portraits

any suggestions on quality lens?

G'day Snapac,
Welcome to the forum.
The step you are taking can be a bit daunting, but hey! its a load of fun and kills off a whole heap of time....and $$$.
Your lens question is a bit like how long is a piece of string....and I do not mean that to be a disparaging answer.

I suggest you prowl around in the lens forum and post your photos forum, there are many, many great shots of all sorts of things to give you some ideas on where you may like to head.
$$$$ will have a big part in what you can and can not do/buy, so a bit of homework first and then come back and ask about specific lenses, this will enable everyone to help you.
