Direct answer to OP:

D7100

Nikoon 18-105mm (I have it, don't underestimate, very good performance for the price)

Tokina 11-16mm (I have one, according to my research the best WA zoom)

Decent tele zoom: at this budget you are stuck with the Tamron 70-300 or Nikon 70-300, and you will be dissatisfied with both after a few months.

Better set-up:

Back to the dark side, Canon 70d

18-55 or 19-135 STM (great lenses, manufacturers seem to have secret sauce for recent lenses, better than Nikon 18-105)

Tokina 11-16mm

And the opportunity to get a professional-quality tele zoom in the 70-200mm f4 IS (Photozone "the sharpest Canon zoom we have ever tested")

I have had most of the above, and can vouch for their perfomance-to-price.
