For Christmas this year my parents gave me a new camera. I know little to nothing about photography and cameras. I've always just used a point and shoot. Will this be a good camera to learn with and "grow" as a novice photographer? I will be using it instead of my point and shoot day to day, but I'm really excited to take it to the mountain to take pictures of snowboarding/skiing, downhill biking, and to the coast for pictures of surfing. So, is this a good all around camera? Will it do what I want it to do well? Is there something else I should be looking at? Thank you for any and all help you can give to me.
