Great shot Marshy,I like the detail in the eyes,thanks for posting and welcome to the forum

As for the add on lenses and bits ,the list can go on and on.The first thing I would get if you haven`t already is a spare battery,and keepthem charged up.For now I would just read through this forum ,ask questions you will find people are very helpful,and will always reply to your posts.The first thing I bought for my DX6490 was a Kodak lens adapter(44.2mm to 55mm),threaded to accept 55mm lenses and filters.I also bought a UV filter,I leave this on all the time as it protects the lens.Theadapter screws into the camera body,and the cameras lensextends and retractsinside the adapter tube.

A popular lens on this forum is an Olympus TCON-17,a telephoto lens with a magnification of 1.7x.I`m not sayin rush out and buy one, just read through the forums ,there are lots of posts with comparison shots.

Hope it helps some.

TommysDad

please someone correct me if I have left anything out.:?

Welcome to the forum Marshy. Nice shot, great detail. Your gonna love the camera. TD is right you will want to get the lens adapter and at least a UV and Circular polarizer filters. And a spare battery. trust me here, your gonna have to get a 2nd job to afford all the extras, LOL.

Man, everyone can do macro but me. sniffle, sniffle.

Regards

Bob

The Polarizer that Bob mentioned is almost a must if you intend on shooting anything that reflects light, like water, cars, even helps on sky shots. If your intending to use the adapter tube and leave it on, I highly recomend it, then when you need a flash a remote flash will be needed. It can go on and on and on, but the recomendations so far are a very good beginning.

And a very warm welcome to the forum. Ask anything except to borrow money and we'll be glad to help.

Try this post it shows a little bit of what you may want to eventually get. I'm not through yet I still have to get a Cokin filter set soon to sort of finish the ensemble!!
