I sold my little D40 kit to my dad so the only nikon I have (besides F2) is an SB600 speed light. If I were to get a Nikon DSLR right now I believe I would get a D7000 right now. I gave both my AF-S lenses to my dad with the D40. I'd need to get a lens with it too. I'd have maybe a grand (USD) to spend on a lens. I have a 180 AIS I could use on the D7000 too. Two questions:

1. What lens for under $1000 would you get to pair with a D7000 as a generalist lens? (I favor build quality and IQ over the broadest range of zoom and would also consider a prime or two).

2. Is there any reason not to get a D7000 right now or something else you'd say was better for the money?

I might get an X100 in the near term as a light adjunct to a DSLR and wait to see what happens at photokina.

TIA,
