I am just ordering a new D7000 after much research and contemplation on the subject. Along with it, I am purchasing an 18-105 and a 50mm 1.8D lenses. I have had a strong passion for photography for a long time and have used others' equipment before, but this will be my first DSLR. I am a mom to two young children, ages 28 months and 12 months, and since I have had them, I've wished I had a nice camera to react quick enough for the many shots I see in my head. Up until this past Christmas, I worked with an extremely slow and dated Canon Powershot with a tiny 1 inch LCD that literally took about 30 seconds of holding down the button to get the shot. For Christmas I wanted to at least get a nice point and shoot for compact use, so I got a Nikon Coolpix S4000. This one is much better and delivers much crisper images, but still is painstakingly slow for a hyper 2 year old boy. I end up getting his back or a blur of him in the far corner of the picture and must go through hundreds of shots to get one that is decent of both kids!

Any help would be appreciated from those of you who are professionals or avid enthusiasts so that I can get great images of my kids, family and travel.
