    Yes. Definently get a bag.

    I also got a flash, case for flash, extra batteries and charger for flash, extra mem card for camera, extra battery and charger for camera. I really want to get one of those tiny tripods right now for taking pics of the dogs at "eye level" - well at least for them.

    You'll LOVE it!

    You may want to purchase a faster lens in the future.

    But get a bag and you're set!:D

    Battery and charger should come with the camera.

    What you'll need in addition to the camera/lens kit is a bag, a cloth for wiping your lens and some lens cleaner. A very important thing to keep in mind is keep the lens cleaner in a separate pocket from the camera - and keep it in a plastic bag. Trust me when I say that the tops do come off those bottles and cell phones can absorb a suprising amount of cleaner fluid.

    I generally use the same cleaner I use for my glasses, so nothing too fancy. Just remember not to spray the lens itself. Spray the cloth and the clean using a circular motion starting in the middle and working your way out. :)

    Well, depending how much you are willing to spend on the bag,
    I hear Crumpler's and Shootsac's are nice. :D I'm not sure how great they are, but they look nice..and seem good. Pretty :)

    I have a crumpler 6 million dollar home in black and I LOVE IT.
    It holds my D300 with whatever lens attached, sb600, sb400, fisheye, a prime or two, and another zoom if I want.:D

    I have too much stuff to do today to be sitting and browsing that site all day for a SUPER cool camera bag.
