Looks good to me.

Just in case you are not familiar with Sony's Eye AF feature (not to confuse with Eyestart AF), you can assign a button for camera to focus on the subject's eyes.

I am not,( Yet) still reading( studying, obsessing over ) manual, and so far I only took 5 ( five) photos with the camera, but I know one thing I:) am spoiled by super zoom on my Panasonic it was so convenient being able to zoom from across the room, that's the only thing I miss, but with the more lenses which I still don't have I'll get over it :D

Well, no super zoom in most DSLRs.

Sony's printed manual (Instruction Manual) can be boring to read. I usually find the online Help Guide be more useful, at least it's searchable.

Enjoy your new camera.

There are superzoom lenses available for dSLRs, but they tend to have more field curvature, distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting than multiple lenses of less ambitious zoom ranges. Lesser cameras can get away with superzoom ratio lenses because they use smaller image sensors. Superzoom lenses for dSLRs with their larger image sensors are either not very good or very expensive, and often both.

Nice shot, btw. Cute model.

I don't have any trouble believing that.

If she were the ONLY reason, that would be enough!
