5xxx series live view AF

Hi

I don't have any experience with Nikon , but am currently looking for a used good quality apsc body , FF I can't really justify at the moment .

I was initially going for the D7xxx , like D7100 or 7200 , but the lack of tilting screen is a deal breaker . On the other hand, the 5200 and 5300 have tilting/swivel screens and look pretty good IQ wise .. Only downside for me compared to the 7xxx would be the smaller viewfinder but I can live with that .

I would use it a lot on tripod , for wide angle interior shots and in settings where live view is important , and my question is : how good/bad is the live view AF ? I know it can't be as good as dedicated mirrorless systems, but AF speed is not important , as long as it doesn't take ages , but accuracy is paramount .

Thank you
