New Photographer! Tucson --> Philly

Hi, my name is Dana and I'm new to photography. Well, let me rephrase -- I've always loved taking photos with the various point and shoots I've owned over the years, but decided to splurge on a DSLR. I did a TON of research, kind of obsessed over it for a few weeks, then decided on the Pentax K5iis. So far, I am so happy with my choice. I love messing around with all of the settings and taking pictures of everything. I'm moving from Tucson to the east coast so I wanted to capture all of the beauty around me. Another reason for wanting a nice camera is to photograph my pottery.
For lenses, I bought a pentax da 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 af lens (discounted with a new camera purchase! thank you B&H), and it is my absolute favorite lens. It is just so fun to take pictures with it. Anyone else have a fisheye or this particular lens? Do you like the fisheye look?

Thanks for the welcome!

That's my pup -- she was staring at her ball!
And thanks for the suggestion for the fisheye thread, I will definitely check it out.
