My New Camera

For a while now I have wanted a new camera, after learning about what is out there and talking to a number of professionals, including our photographer, I decided that I wanted an digital SLR. I found my dads old 35 mm SLR in the back of his closet. It was a Nikon and I have heard a lot of good things about the Nikon's. I guess they have really improved from a few years ago. During my research I found that Nikon has stopped shipping cameras to stores and are selling out all current shipments and new shipments will have higher prices. Armed with this information, I was able to find one (after looking at a number of places), the camera is a birthday present, but I guess it will just come a little early. However I am still waiting on the lenses, they were on back order, one should come with in the next few days and they were not too sure about the second one. I attached my dad's old lenses, however because they are manual focus (and from the 80's) they are not working as well as the new ones, but there are a few sample pictures I took.
