Cold Storm, one thing to take into account. Yes, you can use an adapter to use lenses with different fittings, but you won't be able to use the electrical features such as auto-focus...
True on that nature, I'll have to look into the factors on that for what really goes down.. I really don't see having it for more then a year or so.. I tend to sell off my stuff to get something else once someone is looking for something I have..

Thanks for that.

This is true. Those adapters also will give you slight loss in image quality as well. The only time I know people have used them is for goofing off, or, in emergency case. Such as THis:

A: Drat, I droped my bag. Bob, can I borrow a lens ASAP.
B: Yea, here. Wait, don;t you have a Canon. I have Nikon.
A: I got an adapter. Its ok...for now.

Then again, if you are learning to use a DSLR, this is not a bad way to learn. Just remember, once you pick a brand path, be prepared to walk it for life, unless you have serious dough to blow. Its all about the glass.
