Hi, my first 'virgin' post as well. And I just got my first DSLR camera last week. Been meaning to get my hands on them but have been controlling until I saw an auction on the Olympus E-500 and well the rest is history. I have been using the PnS digital camera but before that, I have an Olmypus prosumer camera (the one with film). Not sure if you can consider as an upgrade for me.
And for info, I'm a lady. So, no complaint on big cameras for me. Hope to learn and pick up 'skills' from you guys/gals here.
