First off, hello! I recently made the decision to dive on into the wild world of photography, and have been lurking here for a bit to try and understand the differences between your P&S cameras and your SLR's and man am I scared/excited!
I just ordered a T1i and a Canon 50mm 1.4 to get my feet wet. I am looking to do a lot of portrait work, but would like to move into shooting indoor sports. But until I figure what the heck I am doing with just the prime lens, I will sit tight on looking into a nice zoom lens that can handle low light, but am open to any suggestions in the mean time!
