I have a 2 plus something year old Sony Alpha 500 with a Tamron 18-250 lens.  As I learn more about cameras and photography I am becomming more aware of the camera's limitations.  So now I am in the market for a new camera.

This is what I am looking to buy.  Can anyone comment on my plans?

1. Nikon D7000 chassis - see

2. AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR glass

3. 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM glass

What do you think of the selection?  I want the 150-500mm lens mainly for my aviation photography.

Cheers and thanks in advance for any comments.
