Switch from Sony 5N to Nikon D3400... opinions please?

I'm thinking of selling my 5N with some old lenses to Amazon and get ~$350 to reinvest on a Nikon, as I have a couple old manual Nikkor lenses I barely use on the Sony.

I'm a no frills user, I had a Nikon D60 years ago and loved it, specially the colors. I switched to ILCs due to weight, but the D3400 is light too and only $400, plus a 35mm 1.8 for $200.

After selling my current gear, I'd only have to spend $250. I could just buy an a5100 for similar money, but switching to Nikon I'd get the same 24mp sensor, a faster 1.8 lens and convenient access to my manual lenses.

This sound like a good idea to me, but I'd love your 2 cents.

Thanks!
