Thanks for all the suggestions.

I'm leaning towards a D7200.

Does anyone have experience with these lenses?

1.Nikon 18-140mm DX VR

2. Nikon 18-200mm VR

I don't really think I need a 70/80-200mm 2.8. I need more of an all around lens. I think these would work for outdoor sports and indoor swimming in the brighter sections of our pool.

If I need something else for indoor swimming, I can get an 85mm 1.8. I can always crop for closer compositions.

Any thoughts? Are these 2 zooms decent?

I would suggest that instead of those lenses you consider the standard 18-55 mm vr and a 70-300VR lens. you should be able to get both of these for the cost of the 18-200. The current 70-300 DX is regarded as a very good telephoto for DX bodies, better than the 18-200.
