"Nikon D90 or Nikon D7000"


CA
          

As some of you may know, I am new to DSLR photography and am looking for my first DSLR.
In terms of what I photograph, I tend to do a wide variety of things:
1) Indoors - portraits, candid scenes from parties, birthdays, holiday family gatherings, stuff like that
2) Outdoors- vacation photography (ie greece, spain etc...), some animals and wilderness, sometimes sports, I also like just taking shots of things that i just notice around me that are particularly photo-worthy whether it be a flower, tree, building, alley, whatever inspires me.

Currently I use a Nikon Coolpix s600 point and shoot camera which doesn't give me the quality of pictures, low light capabilities, or depth of field choice that I would like. Nor does it give me the ability to fine tune aperture, shutter speed, and iso. I have read up a lot on these things and did what I could with my point and shoot, just the performance of the sensor is not great. Also I appreciate a fast continuous shooting speed because sometimes photograph some sports, and also if something is happening randomly quickly, I like the ability to grab a few shots and pick the one I like later without missing the event.

With regards to video, I like having that capability because sometimes at some things I go to, I like to be able to just capture short clips of things, whether it be singing happy birthday or other things.

I like to try to be careful with my electronics, but I always end up bumping them and dropping them and stuff.

That's essentially what my needs are. I've already decided to go with Nikon, I just need to decide between a Nikon D90 and a Nikon D7000. If I get the Nikon D7000 then I would be getting the kit lens: 18-105mm f3.5-5.6. If I get the NIkon D90, then I'll likely get the kit lens, and use that for a while until I learn what kind of other lenses I may need. Most of the time I really would only like to have 1 lens when traveling, but certain occasions I may want to have some other lenses. I may not need the other lenses for a while so honestly, whatever lens I get with the camera will likely be the only one I use for about a year or so.

So let me know what you think.
