D7000 still worth it?

I was looking to upgrade my current D40 with a D7100. Then I received an email from Best Buy with an offer for a D7000 with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens for $800 (compared to $1400 for a similar kit with the D7100). I know the D7000 is no longer in production, and the D7100 is a superior camera, but for the price difference, I think it's hard to justify.

The question, I guess, is am I shooting myself in the foot by buying the D7000? I shoot mainly landscapes, family/people, and occasionally, wildlife. Not a pro by any means, but I guess a serious enthusiast.

I've bought the kit already, because I was afraid they were going to run out of stock, but I can return it within 15 days if I change my mind.

Your thoughts, advice, and recommendations are much appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Enrique
