You may want to check out the newer 18-55 and 55-200 VR lenses. The 28-80 you mentioned was great for 35mm, but is biased towards telephoto for the camera you're considering - probably why it's being bundled. I'd also consider a D40 or D70 body (assuming VR lenses work on them) but check out screen sizes, I think they're smaller. They're practically disposable now but have faster sync speeds (1/500th).
Just my thoughts. Good luck.
I've a feeling I'm not in Kansas anymore.
