Why get the newest and most expensive body if there is no good lens attached to it?

As for a general purpose lens I recommend the 24-70 2.8, unless, that is, you are a prime shooter.

Good point... I've been thinking, I have a Canon 70-200 F4L. Thats really my only prime lens, I do alot of night landscapes with star trails. Maybe I would be better off sticking to canon and buying a lens something like the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 now, then upgrade to a FF body in 6 months or so. I could use the lens right away, and then when I have a bit more money to spend I am all set with two lenses that cover most of my needs.

No matter what I am NOT selling off my Canon gear, its just that Nikon is making FF cameras that have the features I want at better prices. So I thought I could do a dual system thing.

Is there an adaptor so I can use Nikon lenses on Canon bodies and vise versa?
