Default D7000 or D5300?

Hey Friends..
Need ur Help...

Which one should I buy D5300 or D7000???

* Willing to become Semi-Pro with just one camera
* Would also buy one prime and two zoom lens
* One time investment

Pros of D5300:
* Flipout 3.2'' screen
* 24.2 Megapixels
* WiFi & GPS
* Latest Technology

Pros of D7000
* Robust
* Built for long time usage
* More functionality

Only these two come under my budget.


Please specify in-detail about ur choice.
Thanks in Advance.
Your Suggestion is Highly Appreciated.

If you're operating under a budget, the used lens market can be a great resource. The problem with taking advantage of that resource is that many of the older lenses for Nikon cameras don't have their own internal autofocus motor. Since the D5300 doesn't have its own AF motor either, there will be few lenses on the used market that you can take advantage of.

For what you say you want to do, I'd go with the D7000.

I'd go with the D7000 as it's built better and shoots faster and has the wider lens compatibility...
Flip out screens are nice- but not with sub standard contrast detect AF in live view...!
