Get a Shutter Release remote for Long Exposure shots, Lens hood (If you don't have one yet), a good tripod.

Well it protects your screen, preventing scratches on my LCD matters to me.

things to get:
-tripod
-remote for ur camera
-dry cabinet/dry box
-filter to protect ur lens
-cleaning kit
-a bag to transport ur kit around

that's all i can tink of for now.

lastly, screen protectors protect ur screen from scratches.

just my 2 cents ;p

Dont need to rush out to buy stuff.

To start off, a dry cabinet and a cleaning kit. For the rest, you will figure out what you need when you the time comes.:)

to TS. Congrats on your purchase. Welcome to the world of Digital SLR photography...

be warned: temptation to spend is very strong. certain objects have strange and mysterious 'attractive' forces.... :devil:
enjoy your new cam. It's pretty good.
If there are any questions, you can ask here or in the Nikon subforum. You can also join outings to meet more like-minded people, if that is your preference.

Totally agreed . . . every week there are things to purchase . . . just need to endure and work within your budget. See whether it is a need or a want. :)
