I am glad to know that there are people here who took a smilar journey as mine.

I read that 55-300 glass is great. I wanted the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G VR2, but for now I need to learn using the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens.

For the last several weeks, it has not been a sunny California here. Our winters are not as cold, but it still gets me out of the mood to venture out there. For now, I rather spend the time learning to use this new camera indoors where it is warm and cozy.
