    Well I placed my order using my discount! D40x with a 18-135 Nikkor Lens ... I heard it can take up to 3weeks to recieve though. 669$ + 7$ shipping

    Anyway... Seeing how I wont be keeping my discount for long, what other goodies should I buy before i quit?

    Im excited cause i've been wanting to get a SLR for awhile.

    I was thinking.
    Tripod
    Circular polarizer filter
    Extra battery
    4gb memory card (CF or SD?)
    Bag

    Any other ideas?

    Also if anyone can recommend some good websites so i can read about get pointers on photography, learning how to use the aperture and exposure settings, would be nice!
