Okay, so as some of you may know, I purchased a D90 and the 16-85mm lens from B&H on Monday.

It's coming next Monday, and frankly, I can't wait. :D

So, what's the first thing that people do when they get a new body and lens? For example, the routine for first getting a MacBook involves calibrating the battery, registration, etc. What do I do for a D90? What do I do with the lens? (other than checking if they're USA models, even though I'm sure i selected the "USA" version of the lens on B&H's website.)

Moving on to the second question. What are some essential accessories for a Nikon DSLR? Filters? Filters for protection for the lens? Air blowers to clean off the sensor?

And finally, what are your opinions on Lightroom vs NX2? From what I've read online, NX2 gives more accurate color, while Lightroom has a better workflow. Is this correct?

Thanks for answering any (if not all) of the questions.
