    You might also want to consider some of the lenses from Sigma and Tamron as they are making some very good lenses as well. In some cases better than OEM's, and for a much lower cost.

    Examples:

    Sigma 18-50 f2.8
    Sigma 18-200 DC
    Sigma 18-125 DC
    Tamron 28-70 f2.8

    Also you should consider a 50mm f1.8 Nikkor in your arsenal as well. It's a low-cost lens that will come in very handy.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...
