Re: D600 or D7000 or D7100?

You might explore getting a used 28-70mm 2.8 D (with an aperture ring). It will allow you to change aperture while recording video, a fairly big deal. Skip the kit 24-70mm 4.5/5.6G, unless you want a nice light travel lens. The 50mm 1.8G is well liked, but the 50mm 1.4G, while more $$, seems better overall IF you shoot in dark interiors, or like the subject isolation and lovely bokeh effect of the 1.4G. The 70-200mm f4 VR is also well regarded, and lighter than the fabulous f2.8 lens. BOTH these do well with the TC 2.0III, giving you a 400mm reach with very good sharpness and color IQ.

There is a sale on 28mm 1.8G and 85mm 1.8G right now. Both these are excellent. The Sigma 35mm 1.4 seems best for that focal length. With those 3 primes, you can skip the zooms.
