Nikon D7100

Well I'm half was down the rabbit hole. I just pulled the trigger on:

Nikon D7100 DX-format 24.1MP DSLR Camera
Kit with
18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens  Filter size is 67
55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens  Filter Size is 58
WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter,
32GB Class 10 SD Card,
Pictures in 5 Minutes DVD,
D-SLR Pro Messenger Bag 1,  - Don't Need
Nikon ML-L3 IR Remote Control Transmitter
Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone - Won't need
$1,546.95 from Adorama

I know these lenses are not the best but if i were to buy the body itself it would have been $1149
I think that that $400 difference for those 2 lenses is not a bad deal. I think i should be able to turn around and sell them and and get more than $400 for them. For example the 18-140mm sells for $350 and the 55-300mm also goes for about $300. So technically assuming I can sell these for a combined $600 bucks, it would mean that my camera was $950. and that would give me some cash to buy some better glass.
The list of lenses i want to get:
  1. Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f2.8 B&H - Adorama
    Optional - 
    Tokina 16-28mm F/2.8 ATX Pro FX  B&H - Adorama
  2. Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 AT-X AF if i can find one.
  3. Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX - $196  could get one for ~130
  4. Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S FX. - $496  
More later. Research Continues.
