Used Nikon D90 (as people sell them to get D7000s, they are getting cheap), and the new Nikon 28-300mm lens.

Also put your money in glass, not cameras. To put a Tamron on a D90 is pointless, the quality of a Tamron is simply not up to the standard of a Nikon lens.
Read kenrockwell.com and look at his review of the D90 and look for an article about the "DX Dream Team". Not everyone agrees with Ken about cameras but you could do a lot worse. Basically get a used D90 and a decent zoom like the Nikon 18-200 or the new 28-300, both of which Ken Rockwell rates very highly.

D90+ 18-200 is an excellent combination but you will likely have a hard time getting them both for $600. You may also want to think about a D80, it's older and doesn't have as many fancy doodads as the newer models. It sounds like you are just starting out, if that's the case then don't overlook it

Holy smokes! The 28-300 lens is expensive!

You had mentioned a $600 limit. A used D80(a great digital body) plus a new AF Nikkor 70-300(not the AF-S one) should fit that requirement.
