What to do, new lens or new camera
6 months ago

I have been checking out this board for a while, but this is my first post. I have a D5100 that I enjoy using for my grandsons baseball and my granddaughters dance. My main option is the 5100 with a Nikon 55-300, I also just picked up a Nikon 18-200 which I have not had a chance to use for either sport.  My pictures last summer were OK, but looking for something that focuses quicker/better for the baseball and better with the low light of the dance. Should I keep the 5100 and upgrade to the 70-200 F4, or go with my lenses and get a D5300 or D7100, not sure what would be the best bang for the buck. Thanks in advance for any help.
