I received my new D3000 yesterday. It is quite impressive to me. The thing I noticed most was the light weight. How they can get so much into such a small camera is amazing. I had bought and read the first two chapters of "Mastering the Nikon D3000" and was ready for the setup which went easy and quick. I had one problem which was my fault entirely. When I ordered the kit I failed to notice that the 55-200 lens was not VR. I called the seller and they agreed to take the lens back and send me the VR at an additional cost which I found to be very fair. I'm looking forward to reading more and learning more from "Matering the Nikon D3000". I find the book extremely easy to read and follow. Darrell Young has done a great job.

Congrats on the cool D3000. It is a sleeper camera, in my opinion. The images are simply excellent and the price is right.
I'm also glad my book is useful to you. Ask questions if you get stuck on anything.
