Considering D5500... questions

I am considering adding a D5500 as a dedicated camera for my DX fisheye lens. I have found a few second hand copies locally in the EUR 200-300 bracket with shutter counts between 1100 and 9500.

I would more or less glue my circular fisheye to the body.

What's good and what's bad about D5500? Would the older D5300 be just as good at a lower price, or does the even newer D5600 offer something indispensable?

If I have correctly identified the sensor, D5300 and D5500 share the same Sony sensor as D7200. On the other hand D5200 has the older banding-prone Toshiba sensor that was also in D7100, so that won't do.

Comments? Advice? Last Nikon DX body I bought was D2x and it has been a while. 
I am not up to speed with these, so all comments welcome.
