Hi just made the leap across from my old bridge camera (now disfunctional Fuji Finepix S5000 camera) of 10years to the K5 DSLR and am looking forward to experimenting and having some exploratory fun over the next few months though I would expect that, as in life you can never stop learning. Though limited in what you could do with my old camera, I am relishing getting to know all the extra adjustments. I am starting out with the standard 18-55mm lens and thought I should get used to that before investing in a 50-200mm zoom. Hope that I shall pick up some good information from this forum too.

Welcome to the forum, I'm in the "Older" category too, so are a few other others members here, but not all admit to it.
