    Yes, that's exactly right. There will be a lot of 'why's? (e.g Why can't i do this or Why is it doing that?) but keep plugging at it and your DSLR will reward you with many great pictures.

    Hi welcome! Do ask yourself if you're just a gadget chaser or you got your camera to learn photography skills. If the latter, your current equipments are already one of the latest, just keep shooting and improving your skills. The knowledge of gears upgrade will come naturally.
