Hi,

have you had a look at the D5200 ? From what you mention, it may be good enough for you.

I've had a D300s until last October, and upgraded to a D600. The D300s is basically a 5-year old sensor, and even if it is an excellent camera (and in some aspects, better than the D600), it is not that great at high-ISO. For family portraits (indoor), it will struggle. From what i saw quickly on some reviews, the D5200 is better than the D300s at high ISO and you may be able to save some bucks for faster lenses.

Just a thought !

Gwen
