The D5300 is ok if your not expecting to much. I bought the d5300 along with the 18-140 lens (which I absolutely love) as a smaller lighter backup when I'm traveling. My primary bodies are the D800 an a couple of D7100s. I'm not happy with the D5300 and will be trying to return it. Here's some of the Reasons. I have been shooting iPhone pics in order to get the GPS info so this looked like a great feature. It has been frustrating at best. I've finally gotten it to work sometimes but you really can't rely on it. Same with the wireless. If I want to shoot an I camera HDR I have to change the menu selection for each series...it goes back to off automatically. If I'm shooting a bracketed series ther is ,no time function so it is much harder to keep the camera still. Generall, the ergonomics are lousy. Bad decision on my part.
