Don't let our strong opinions on gear spook you. You need to get miles on your skis before worrying about finite details in performance! Go ahead, wear rear-entry boots, gat a cap ski with a system binding, and go ski a bunch!
After you get better, then start dorking-out on the gear!
I learned on non-cambered (dead) skis, that were dull, had no wax, were full of core shots, and were way too small! You'll be fine!
