I can echo what Alan has stated. I joined Nikonians while waiting for my D800 which was my first full frame DSLR and first Nikon. I have learned a lot from these great forums. Probably the most important is that I take time to contemplate and prepare each time I go our for a shoot. I think about the type of shooting that I will be doing and trying to prepare and make some settings prior to every leaving the house. I also try to make a note of what to check before every snaping the picture.
