comment What is the average lifetime of lenses, specially L lenses
Lens mountings evolve much more than they change. I think Canon only had one really incompatible lens-mount change change since the invention of the SLR. I believe most Nikon lenses that fit the original Nikon F in 1959 can still be used, without adapters, on this years cameras (at least in fully manual mode, the main problem would be incompatible meter coupling). The reverse isn't true as most modern lenses lack an aperture ring and older bodies don't control aperture.

comment How can I prevent blurred images when using a tripod?
Use the timer (+ IR remote + exposure-bracketing) and step outside the room?

comment Is there a single lens suited for flying birds, mountains, and close-up portraits?
@mattdm: 2 Kg (4.3 lb) - not ideal for "close up portraits" ;-)

comment What are the differences between Picasa and Lightroom, other than price?
Using recent versions of Picasa to add captions, keywords etc results in the loss of Manufacturer Makernotes in EXIF, including a lot of information about camera settings used for the shot. Really old versions of Picasa didn't have this problem. So some Picasa operations are destructive to some data in the image file.
