Well, my wife has given me the green light on a D7100. I currently have a D5000 and want to upgrade. I was going to get a D3300, but decided to bite the bullet and spend more now to get what I want. Would you guys sell the D5000 body or just use it as a backup? I mean, I doubt I'd get much more than $250 for it, but I also don't see myself using it much with the addition of a D7100.

I doubt youll touch the D5000 ever again. I also doubt you'll recover close to $250 -- more like $125.

If you are in dire needs, try to sell it. Otherwise keep it, the flippy screen might come in handy once in awhile. BTW do you know refurb D7100 are back in stock at Adorama for $499 (90 day) and Cameta for $530 (1 year warranty)

Would you recommend buying refurbished?

Thanks! Just going buy the ones on eBay and craigslist really. But yes, I know that asking price and selling price are usually pretty far apart lol.

Good news.
yes, sell your d5000

I kept my d7000 as backup to my d600. I had to force myself to use it from time to time. Then I sold it.
With the old sensor and old tech I'd just get rid of it.
