Getting the D7000, body only, or is the kit lens better than what I have?
Oct 13, 2011

So I have a 7 year old D70 that's starting to malfunction and its time to upgrade. I've decided to get the D7000.

I have the Nikkor 18-70mm AF-S 3.5-4.5 that came as the kit lens with the D70. My question is if the kit lens that comes with the D7000 ( the 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED ) is a better lens then my original kit lens to make it worth an extra $300 than purchasing a body only. $300 definitely won't break my bank, but would I be better suited to putting it towards a different lens

I also have an:
1) old AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8,
2) entry level promaster 70-300mm 4-5.6 that has been around since my N70!

Thanks in advance for your opinions!
