New D610 bodies are under $700. and a rock solid camera by every measure. A nice jump up in performance.

This would be my pick too, if it weren't for the flippy screen restriction. I have a D500 for birds and wildlife, but still choose my D610 for everything else. I love the output from this camera!

To the OP, I think you first need to decide if you want to go FF or not. If that is your goal, the D750 has the flip screen and would be a nice upgrade for the kinds of things you shoot. A D610 would another great choice, but you lose the flip screen.

DX is still great and you already have some nice lenses. The D7500 seems to fit your needs well. The D7200 is also very good. You might look at this link that compares your D5300 with the D7500 and D750.
