Thanks again everyone, you're actually starting to make this difficult with all of the good suggestions.
The best way to learn photography and a camera, as I am told, is to take a camera with you just about everywhere you go and each day play with on setting only, then compose photo's of anything that catches your eye but do your best to compose then in such a way that the setting chosen emphasizes the shot.
Once the camera settings/options are learned then you move into more fo the gear. A specific lens. A specific aperture or focal length. a specific filter, etc....
This is the beauty of digital. No film to develope means once the shot is taken you don;t have any expense lost if it's bad and removal is a click away.
The problem, is finding the time and maintaining an interest. Then the struggle is deepend when the interest is heightened and you realise how expensive it can get to expand on your kitted camera set.
Or so I am told.
