I Have A D5000 As Well, It's My First Real Camera, I Was Lost When I First Started Using It, Lots Of Bells & Whistles, The More You Have It In Your Hands The Better You Will Get.

I Went Ahead & Got The 18mm-55mm & 55mm-200mm, A +1 +2 +4 Lens Filter Kit, I Have Ordered A 85mm f3.5 Nikkor Micro Lens That I Have Been Waiting Two Freaking Weeks To Get Here, Can't Wait To See What I Can Get With That Lens, I Also Got A SB-600 Speed Flash, Think I Should Have Saved My Money On The Flash & Got A Ring Flash Set-Up ??? But I'm Sure I Will Find Sometime That I Might Need It, I'll Just Have To Get A Ring Flash Set-Up.

But Anyway, Congrat's On Your New Camera, It Makes Photography Alot Of Fun, Best Of Luck, Wishes & Karma On Kicking Out Some Jaw-Dropping Shots..

Hey thx for the comments. I'm lookin at macro lenses, but it's going to be awhile before I'm able to pick one up. I picked up Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere' Elements 3.0 today. I'm sure it's not the most current version, but it was a smokin deal for about a quarter of nuggets. :D

The 'Elements' products from Adobe are the super stripped down very end-user consumer versions of the software. Just the basics, don't expect too many graet features or frills.

Seems to work just fine for what I need. I'm a home user so there is no real need for a $1200 Adobe program. :D

^^^^ look around on the internet. There are numerous sites you can download the newest versions for free.

$1200????? Really? I paid $400 for my Adobe Sweet package. Got 'em all Photoshop, Illustrator some other stuff I don't even use.

Priced Adobe at my college bookstore where we get it for a discount. $800 The guy said regular price was $1200. Now I'm not sure what all that includes, but it was what they had.
