    The D7000 may not be the latest and greatest but it is far from being trash.

    The D7000 suffered from major back-focus issues, if you're lucky you didn't have the issue, but its a well known issue that plague a huge user-base [just like the d800].

    Coupled with the 16MP sensor that isn't that great [really falls apart ~3200iso], it's really not worth the risk buying used. Especially when you factor in the $150-250 repair to fix your focusing issues...

    The D5200 has the same 39pt focusing module and the much better 24mp Toshiba sensor. Given the choice I'd go with the D5200 despite being a entry-level camera. I would pick the D7100 over it in a heartbeat however.

    This.

    If you are considering a used camera body, you may or may not find a deal that includes any lenses whatsoever, and any deals that include a choice lens will be as rare as hen's teeth.

    If a used camera is something you will consider, then do your lens shopping separately from the camera shopping. You can find superb lenses on the used market, but they will probably not include any camera body.

    Now your task is to divide your budget into camera body and lens acquisition prices. Good luck!

    I do agree that the D7100 is a better choice than the D7000.

    The D7000 was a camera body that did not last too long in the lineup, and which had an unusually high number of,well...bad-focusing bodies...it was what I think of as a transitional model...it just...wasn't....all that good...
