One more newbie checking in!

Greetings everyone. Just ordered my first DSLR, a K-x with the 18-55mm lens and the 55-300mm lens. From what I've seen this looks like a great place for info, as soon as I can get up to speed on terminology. I have had a little experience with film SLR using a Pentax Spotmatic SP, but this digital SLR world looks to be a ways removed from that camera. The good thing is I have a few lenses (still have the camera too actually) that I'm hoping to use on the K-x eventually with the adapter ring. I definitely look forward to getting it and starting to figure it out and experiment a bit, as well as learn some stuff here.
