I just purchased a D5000 and 18-55mm VR kit, refurbished from Adorama. Seemed like a good deal. While I wait for it I thought I would pose a couple questions.

First, when it shows, what should I check out to make sure all is good? Being Nikon and from Adorama I didn't worry to much about it being refurbished. I know there was a recall on early production D5000 as well, so I'll check the serial# just in case, but I'm betting it's been long enought that won't be an issue. What other issues or anything should I check to make sure I got a good copy?

I'm not really new to DSLR's in general. Used a Olympus E-1 and E-330 for a few years. Also use Nikon film SLR's. This being my first Nikon DSLR though, are there any particular tips for starting out with this one?
