My choice would be to go with the D7000. While the D5200 has the articulated LCD screen and a higher resolution sensor, in practical shooting situations the higher resolution of the D5200 is a benefit when extreme crops are needed and at that only a little. I would think that auto focus with your screw drive D lenses would be more important. You will also be able to meter with manual focus lenses after adding the lens data in non-CPU lens data menu.

I have the D5100 and the D3200 and mostly only see the resolution improvement of the D3200 when viewing at 100%.
