From the responses I have to wonder why the D7100 was needed. It is a high res high end camera in a mid to low price class. If lenses like the 18-300 or 18-200 are all that is needed to satisfy owners, they could have saved $1200 by keeping whatever they had before. A D7000 can test the limits of many of the mentioned lenses, and the D7100 probably is lens limited without excellent lenses.
Walking around lenses fall into a few different categories such as serious street photography without a pre-defined goal or scene, on one end of the spectrum and casual grab shots for memory on the other. Point and shoots are getting so good that a number of the possible definitions of "walking around" photography can easily be satisfied by them.
I find that as I got more sophisticated gear and lenses, my total shot count drops by the month because random memory shots are not taken at all. It is not easy to grab a heavy lens and camera from a bag to get a grab shot that is just popping up so I do not even bother. When I got the D90, my first DSLR when it was introduced, it went everywhere with me and my shot count was very high. That camera was a pretty darn good balance between weight, size, cost and performance with its kit 18-105 lens. My first good lens was the 70-200 and it became my go to lens even for walking around because it excels at candid shots and street portraiture. Today when I go out to meet friends, I am taking the D7000 and a 24 1.4 prime, no flash or accessories. Anything more casual and it would be my cell phone 8mpx camera.
