I recently got into photography probably about within the past 4 months. I sold my HV20 and picked up a dslr and started messing around with it and have had a lot of fun.
Camera: Nikon D5000. Wanted a cam that shot good pictures and a litle video. Happy with the camera but probably going to upgrade within time.
Lenses: 18-55mm kit lens i think its a 3.5-5.6
55-200mm 4-5.6 I think
55mm 1.8 lens (Best lens I have used yet, will definately be buying more prime lenses)
Flash: Just purchased a Vivitar 285HV for a good price so going to be working with that soon.
EF 50mm f1.4
EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6
EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6
