Is Sony Vegas a good choice for a novice like me who wants to edit his own indie movie?

I'm not familiar with the different editing programs, but Sony Vegas seems to be in my price range, but I'm ore interested in it being easier to learn than others. Any suggestions from a few professionals out there would be greatly appreciated.

From what I've seen, Adobe Premiere seems to be the most popular. But Vegas is like number two. The editor is just a tool. It's your talent that really matters. I would say they're all about as easy to learn. You won't use all of it, you just need to know how to do what you want to do.
