I received a D5000 for Christmas and also received payment to a local community college class this upcoming January. My questions are, what do I absolutely NEED? Money is an issue right now. So far, I've bought: -Cheap Tripod -Lowepro Case (which may go back, depending on if I decide to pick up another lens right now) -Digital Photography Vol. 1, the book everyone suggests, as well as my class's main textbook -2x8GB Class Six SD cards I'm looking into a multicoated filter, wireless shutter release, and lens hood. Advice on these are up in the air, depending on what website you visit. Also, I'm able to get Amazon to offer the 55-200mm Nikon lens for about 110.00 after 100.00 instant rebate, which is their current promotion. Is this worth it right now? Is it something I will kick myself for not picking up in the near future? Basically, I'm a newbie, steer me in the right direction. Besides Adorama, Butterfly, and Amazon, any other big websites I'm missing?
