Hi Matt and welcome to the Corner! Enjoy the journey of getting to know your new camera - you've chosen well for a body. What lenses do you have?

Re: Alexandria VA checking in

Current lenses are the 18-55mm that came with the camera and then I picked up a used Sigma 70-200mm. Searching for a 18-135mm and 50mm
