Recently Received the D5200 - keep it or get D7100?

I purchased my first DSLR (the Nikon D70) in 2004 after the birth of my first daughter.

For Father's Day my wife gave me the D5200 body as a gift.  While this would be a huge upgrade to my aging D70 I'm a little concerned that the 5200 doesn't have an lcd screen on top of the camera for easy adjustment of shutter speed, aperture, etc and seems to be more menu driven.  So, I'm contemplating sending the 5200 back and getting either the d7000 kit or d7100 body.

Anybody have any hands on experience with the 5200?  Do you like it?
