D7000 and lenses
You may want to consider the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Silent wave focusing, vibration reducrion 2, ED glass, and aspheric elements. Covers 24-128 in full frame conversion. It is arguably the best DX lens Nikkor makes for $700 msrp.
The D7000/16-85 combo is the one I'm getting after much research. You can add your long zoom after this.
