Next move up from my trusty old D5300

I am looking to upgrade from my ol' reliable D5300 , It has served me well for years ! I think it was perhaps the best of all 5XXX cameras.
I shoot landscapes ,most often in early morning or late evening low light 90 % on a tripod. Macros of insects and flowers usually cloudy or full daylight sometimes in brightly lit sun,most often handheld or a monopod.. A few portraits. 
I don't shoot much indoors.Don't really consider flash photography right now
I'm trying to figure the next logical Nikon (because of my lens stock),and I just plain like Nikon -that will improve dynamic range,autofocusing when I use it, and better ISO performance. with less grainy images . This is a headache.
My current lenses Sigma 17-50 2.8 DX , Tokina 11-16 DX, Sigma 150mm FF macro (a fantastic beast on DX) , 35mm1.8G  and the Nikon 18-200 VR  are well tailored for what I do. 
Screw drive would be a benefit if I branch out in lenses some day,but I'm in no rush to get more lenses.
 A D7200 ,while a great camera doesn't have a flip screen. I value a flip screen more than two card slots.The articulating screen on the D5300 is nice,but a flip would be better because of L bracket fit.
If I go full frame, I won't be able to upgrade my prized DX lenses for a while,leaving only three of five for full frame images without the crop and lesser quality;otherwise I would consider a used D750.
Is the D7500 a good choice for landscapes? I don't hear many photographers talk about it.
What good choices in F mount are there for what I do ,and what have your experiences been?
Thanks for any feedback.
