Help me transition to a Nikon D7000 Kit (from Pentax)


I have been a faithful Pentax user for the past three years. I have decided to make a switch (because I like change things up and explore new things). Since I am not familiar with the Nikon line up, I was hoping you could help me select comparable components from the Nikon stable. Currently I have the following:

Pentax K7
Pentax 50-135mm f/2.8 (professional grade mid zoom)
Pentax 35mm f/2.0 (compact prime)
Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (kit wide angle)
Pentax 21mm f/3.2 (wide angle pancake)
Pentax 540 flash (their higher end flash w/ swivel head)
Pentax 360 flash (their lower end flash)

I would like to achieve the following:

1) A compact kit for outdoors activities; family gatherings and carry around for spontaneous moments.

2) professional components for portraits and other circumstances where kit size and weight are not an issue.

Thanks in advance for your help.
