Get the Tamron 17-50/2.8 ($429 shipped at buydig).

Don't know much about this lens, but possibly very good price/performance ratio. The 28-75 f2.8 is another consideration.

Good range on
DSLR, much more useful than 28-70/2.8

Depends on what you do. 28-70 is much more useful than 17-50 for portraiture, for instance.

Nikon is VERY heavy.

You don't have one, obviously!

Then next month add the Tokina 50-135/2.8 when it comes out
(around 6 or 700). Then you'll have a very nice 17-135/2.8 kit.

Interesting idea. Certainly worth of consideration.

Then get Nikon Capture NX and start shooting RAW for top notch
results.

Correction: get RawMagick and shoot raw for top notch results.
