Initially, what's your thoughts on sensor cleaning?

Second, I don't see the point of putting a 70-200 2.8 on a D5100.

What a bizarre thing to say.  Can you share some pictures of this combination so we can learn how terrible it will be?

To the OP.  A f2.8 zoom will get you 2 stops more light than your current lenses plus much faster focus which is important for your requirements.  The D600 will probably be around 1.5 stops better than the D5100.  In your case I would probably go for the lens first.
