    Welcome :) You have yourself a wonderful little camera.

    Lens suggestion:
    What core_17 recommended. Relatively inexpensive but produces wonderful results and lots of fun to use.

    Coool, thanks.
    Would you recommend any other lenses? I was looking at the Sigma 70-300mm.. seemed kind of interesting.

    Welcome! If you post a question in general Q&A about the lens and include a budget, then I'm sure that you'll get a good answer. The 50mm f1.8 always gets my vote though!!
