In the uk you can get the D3300 with 18-55 vrii for £414 (£394 body only)  it's a great lens for general travel snaps.

the D5200 with its 18-55 kit lens  is around £485. Both cameras are very good . The D3300 is a bit better in low light and the battery lasts longer.  As for shallow depth of field ( like the pros) that's down to the lens you use and what settings are picked. For that pro look portrait stuff etc just get a 50mm f1.8 G lens . Only £150 ish new at the moment.

You could even look at a pentax K50 with 18-55 and a 55-200 lens kit. Both weather resistant for only £498 at the moment.
