A used camera isn't too much of a problem for me. If you look in places like here, or you're more likely to find a well cared for camera. I'd prefer to go with a camera that had the motor in body, even if you never did get a lens that needed that function at least you had that opportunity to do so. I'd also tend to overspend a bit now rather than find I didn't get the camera that suited my needs. You've got so many people that buy cameras and feel it doesn't suit their needs and change them every 13 seconds that good used models are always available.

The 5200 looks like a good camera, for me though I'd probably get a used D7000
