I bought a Nikon D7000 last year after starting training with my mom (she's a professional photographer) and recently I have got more into video production rather than photography. I know the D7000 is very nice when it comes to taking photos but I've noticed the video doesn't work so well in low light. Will a new lens help? Do all DSLR's have trouble shooting video in low light with the standard lens? & finally would just getting light equipment be my best solution?

Try picking up an f1.8 or 1.4 lens

Get nikkor 35mm for sure. It's affordable and works amazingly and you could also try getting an on camera LED light those are affordable as well but it's really up to the person though because it's only good for certain things..

a lot of times the standard lenses that come with the camera are not that great, if you can afford a zeiss it'd be a real nice investment

I think it should be general rule of thumb that you should get the 35mm AF as your first major lens when you cop a Nikon DSLR.

I love mine.

f 1.8 or 1.4 would be your best bet. My buddy shoots an f 1.8 22mm nikkor with his D7000 and loves it.
