Don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any.

Also don't pass up the market place.

If you are just starting out lenses are where it's at. You can save yourself a lot of time, hassle, and money by doing a few or all of the following things:

1) get the camera body you want
2) buy used lenses from the market place, you can save a bundle
3) ask questions! And don't just limit those questions to gear.

The forum is packed full of people who know A LOT of stuff and can help you progress a lot faster than if you just try to do it all on your own.
