Had them both, D5200 Hands down... Why buy old technology if the new is better, look at DXO mark, D5200 bests even the D7100...Go go snapsort.com to view one of many web comparisons, better low noise, better dynamic range, better focus system, you'll kick yourself to go old....

You shouldn't blindly rely on DxOmark scores. The D5200 has slightly better resolution/sharpness (assuming you have top quality lenses and master the technique), but slightly less usable DR due to banding (if you are into lifting shadows and pseudo-HDR) - but most users won't really notice any serious difference.
