Right now, and bare in mind I'm a big Avid fan, I'd go the Adobe route. Premiere Pro is good to go for you right now, you have the software, it will work with the hardware and it can open the projects and read the media.

I think Media Composer 6.0 might change the equation, but that's just as much a future unknown and FCP X upgrades... Although we do know that MC6 will come and it will do the things pros need :)

The other issue with Media Composer is that it's not as simple for shared editing. Not that FCP was simple about it, but Avid has very specific ways to do it and they are not cheap. You can do it with a basic SAN and Media Composer only, but depending on your needs you might want to look at managed collaboration - either Avid's Unity systems, or perhaps EditShare.
