Default Cannon 70D versus Nikon D7100 or should I consider new Nikon D5300?

So, I was close to deciding between the Nikon D7100 & Cannon EOS 70D....now the Nikon D5300 in introduced. You have me re-thinking my decision and perhaps I am leaning towards the D5300. I am looking for a Digital DSLR to upgrade from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 so I can capture my daughter's sporting events and concerts more effectively. Would appreciate any comments & recommendations. I would likely purchase with a 18-140mm lens then also add a zoom up to 300mm
Thanks
Henry

are all your daughter's sporting events and concerts going to be outdoors in daylight? if not, you're probably going to need a faster (and more expensive) lens.

What sports? What types of concerts?
