I Got It!!
So I got my new camera a few days ago and I love it! I ended up getting it with the kit lens which really is not as bad as people say it is, as long as you stop it down a bit. I bought it refurbished from Adorama, they said it would arrive in 7-10 days, but it took only 3! So I was very pleased with them. I am putting some shots in the pending queue so hopefully they will be online soon!
