    In that regard, my advice I always give is... Go with what you feel best with.

    I seen that the white balance
    Was exceptionaly better on the 5600 as the 5300 has a more yellow look.

    For that budget and for macro, and assuming used prices, I'd go with Nikon D7100 and AF 60mm f2.8 micro, or the Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro.

    The D7100 seems to be at $400 used and both the AF 60mm f2.8 micro and the Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro are at $250 used.

    Neither the AF 60mm f2.8 micro nor the Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro will autofocus on noob cameras, i.e. the D3x00 and D5x00 varieties.

    If you want to shoot insects, you should definitely prefer the Tokina for its longer focal length.

    There are many multiple options for lenses and you don't necessarily need to go with one specific manufacturer.

    Look around.

    The big 3 these days are Nikon, Canon, and Sony. A lot of people these days are shooting Fuji too. They all make great picture takers. Look at as many as you can and choose the one that fits your hands the best. I personally like the way Nikon gear works so I stick with Nikon. You may like something else better though so shop around.
