Hello...I'm new to Nikon and the Nikonians. I've been a Canon user for many, many years. I was heavy into Canon SLR's then switched to dSLR's. Sadly I got burnt out with "chasing the lenses" and went to point & shoot. I know, I know...what was I thinking?

Having a need for more control I started searching for another dSLR. Something easy to use with manual control as needed. My budget was a big factor. After comparing Canon to Nikon...I made the switch.

Anyways, my D5000 will be here tomorrow. I settled on the kit with the 2 VR lenses. This should be a good start for me getting back into dSLR photography.

This is an amazing site. Tons of reference information. Thanks for having me!
