    I have strong reservations about buying used camera equipment from anyone other than a reputable dealer or someone I know personally. It's way too easy to break a lense or damage a camera body.

    Don't do craigslist. Buy responsibly at adorama or best buy that way you can return it. The bro. Is right about craigslist. Don't get taken advantage of. We here want a happy Mason photographer!

    Congratulations! I'd also recommend a good circular polarizer and clear filter. Two essential items, imho. The circular polarizer will help get rid of a lot of haze and UV in outdoor shots. The clear filter should be on your lens whenever your polarizer or lens cap isn't. It prevents the lens from getting scratched or dusty.
    I have a few books that I can recommend which really helped me with learning some of the basics of composition. Really helped to up my photography game.

    Understanding Composition Field Guide: How to See and Photograph Images with Impact (Amazon Link)
    I know there was at least one more general book that was excellent, but I'm not at home so I can't check my library. I'll update this thread later with more. The above two are excellent, though.

    I bought a 2 set from walmart it has the circular polarizer, and a ultraviolet.

    Going to the beach later to try out the filters!
