Seems like you would appreciate having the D7100 over the D5300, though the D5300 has a great sensor and produces great images.

And I would strongly recommend the D7100 over the D7000. The autofocus is apparently much improved.

Consider a Nissin or Yuongo iTTL speedlight as a budget stretcher.

Can't go wrong with the Nikon 'Nifty 50', as noted above.

That leaves a standard zoom. I would say do not overlook the Nikon 18-105 kit lens. Excellent for the price, but of course there are better options.  For DX, I feel one needs something a little wider--the 24-70 range ends up being a little long to suit me.  18-140 makes a lot of sense.  18-200 is great, at a little lower 'image quality' IMHO.
