Re: Any Reason to get D5300 over A6000?

Size, stability, grip and/or better hand fit, different, more complete lens selections if looking for lenses with in lens vibration reduction.  You can use an adapter to add A/Maxxum mount lenses to the A6000 but some of the third party lenses for Sony don't include anti-shake where the Nikon mount versions do.  There is a point where the aperture or focal lengths/ranges result in larger lenses and the body size is less significant to the overall kit.

I don't think, as good as discussions of the 55-210 suggest it is, that 200mm is going to be long enough for African safari uses

Both the D5300 and A6000 (IIRC) will require lenses with in lens focus motors so the speed of autofocus is going to also depend on the responsiveness of the lenses.  Until the A6000 is in the wild, it may be hard to see just how fast "fastest" really is and how that actually works in a variety of applications.
