D5500 is substantial update build-wise
6

I played with one today in Nikon's booth at CES. The build quality vs previous D5xxx models is significantly better in terms of feel in hand, fit 'n trim, and most importantly the grip. The grip is much deeper ala the D750 and was the most comfortable grip on a small DSLR that I've ever held; it felt like a high-end DSLR in a tiny package. On balance the camera seemed more substantially built than even a D7100. They're using some new type of composite material on it, or at least that's what it felt like to me. Lastly the viewfinder was also much improved for size and clarity.
