Hi Val, Robert:
Welcome to the dark side! I hope you realize that there's no going back!
I think that you'll find the personalities here inviting, helpful, interesting and entertaining. This is by far the best site for analog photography and the people that are hooked on it. Be sure to subscribe so that it stays viable.
Val: I'm a Minolta shooter, so I really can't help much. But there are plenty of Nikon people here to help.
