Yet another 'which camera to get'

Here is what I have:

A worn out D50 (6 MP, scratches on the LCD but still clicking)

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300 F/4.5-5.6G VR (albeit with broken VR, i'm getting it fixed soon)

Nikon 50 mm F/1.8 AF-D
Nikon 85 mm F/1.8 AF-D
Nikon 105 mm MicroNikkor AF-D

Sigma 10-20mm 1:4-5.6 EX DC HSM

Nikon SB-800 Speedlight

and a bunch of rather irrelevant stuff like a non-VR dx 18-55 kit lens, a less than stellar 28-80 kit lens (from my film days F-801) and a good old manual focus Vivitar 200mm f/3.5 (one of my favorites btw)

My main interest is landscape, macro, architecture and the dogs. I use LR4.4 and PS CS6 for PP

So far so good. Now what:

I've contemplated the following, taking the prices from a nearby reliable shop:

1) D5200+18-105 kitlens (€  795) I'll have to replace the 105 and the 50 (about  900)
2) D7100+18-105 kitlens (€ 1208) + Manfrotto tripod+head (055XPROB + 391RC2  about 230)
3) D600 + 24-85mm VR (1970)

what are your thoughts?

If you are replacing your d50, you clearly like to keep your gear a while (compared to some here). Consider your long term needs, and build quality.
