Jumping Ship - Need Equipment Advise


I have been Minolta shooter now from few decades. I was forced to go Sony, which for some reasons I never liked. However, release of A700 infused hope as this baby was impressive. With 20+ DSLR including a FF A900 I am disappointed as to the direction Sony is moving and therefore looking to jump the ship.

Since I have large Minolta equipment I will slowly and evenly move. For starters I have identified D7000 based on my research and what I read here in the forum. I am attracted to clean images D7000 produces in high ISO scenario plus it seems fast enough and has good burst rate ( though somewhat restrictive, since I shoot mainly raw).

I am here for suggestion and advice on lenses. I am looking to pick 2 to 3 lens at this time to cover say 12/14 mm to 200/300mm range. Here is my short list :-

AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens
AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX G ED Lens
18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED
