I just have one thing to add.

Don't use Adobe RGB until you fully understand it. Instead keep your camera on sRGB, so you can post images to the internet and they will have proper colors. Later, if you decide to print your own pictures on a professional printer, you may find that Adobe RGB will give you more color range on landscapes, but you will still always have to convert all your images to sRGB to send them out to be printed or to post on the web.
