Peter As MEMcd said just power her up and shoot. Other than the recall there shouldn't have been much that needed refurb. The recall was a short fix, got mine back in 10 days. D5000 is a very good camera and should provide you with alot of shooting pleasure. Go on to YouTube and querey D5000...there arre tons of videos that will teach you many ricks as well as everyday stuff for this camera.
