I agree, the D7000 is fine for this sort of scene distance to subject. The 35 is a good choice but I hate to suggest it but the 24 1.4 is perfect for this sort of scene but really expensive. Nikon has a new 28 f/1.8 that is getting good reviews. I have never seen one but it might be the closest to the 24 in IQ and speed for about $700 in the US, more there in Portugal. The 24 is 3.5 times as much. With the 28 you would be closer to the scene but the perspective is more artistic than the 35 which is like a normal human eye field of view when on a DX body.
At low ISO there is very little in the camera world that produced lower noise and wider DR with the exception of the new Nikon D600, 800, and D4 and older D3x. Everything else will be weaker in shadow noise which means the D7000 files are pretty flexible for pushing and pulling without generating or revealing artifacts and noise. To get better at higher ISO, the only answer is newer Fx.
Your flash work will be well suited to the D7000.
If you did not have a budget, your work, a D800 would really shine.
Regardless of camera, I suspect a good prime would be better for you than a mid zoom. To get wide open during the day, with a fast lens for best isolation, you should look at a ND filter prevent needing to stop down and lose the isolation.
