+1 on the lenses with Aperture ring. Downside is: not easy to find! The new Nikon 35mm doesn't have it f.i. (the 50mm does though).

I would also go for an external recorder (something like the Zoom H4N) to capture sound if you're serious about making movies. Downside is having to synch this later on in your NLE (but you could use something like Plural Eyes to largely automate this).

I also use a Zacuto Z-finder Pro on my D7000; makes critical focusing much easier! There are cheaper options out there, but what I like about this one is that it doesn't require you to glue anything to your camera (I am terrible at DIY!) and that it's easy to pop on and off.
