Got the new D5300 body this morning, nice fast delivery from our UK Currys store.

That's exactly what I would have done. Even the slightest repair on the D5100 would probably cost more than the thing's worth. The D5300 should be a huge step up in both image quality and resolution. And your learning curve going from the D5100 to the D5300 is practically zero, so you can seamlessly move from one to the other on short notice for your vacation.

Yes, I was thinking a repair will be at least £200, these sell for under that on refurbished sites.

I also thought about the learning curve, although that to me would have been a minor issue.

Take the D5100 to recycling or sell for parts on eBay.

Yup, also my intention.
