Noob question I know... but I also have a 50mm 1.8 so which one could I do without if I wanted to sell a camera with a lens for an easier sale?

Need?
Maybe, maybe not.

If you need something closer than the 5 or 55, then yes.

Sell?
We out here have no idea of what camera, which lenses, where you might be selling, what you might use the kep lenses for.
Details, please.

O.k.. I bought the D5200 for something to learn on but I would prefer the top down view finder of the D7100 instead of fiddling in menu's the longer batt, environmental sealing, etc. "That's" the camera I should have bought from the start Don't get me wrong I love the 5200 with the nifty 50mm lens it takes awesome photo's I'm happy to keep learning on it till I can get the D7100, but when it comes time to sell my other camera I'm not sure if I should sell the VR's and get a 35 or 85- 50mm instead.
I guess in time I will have a better idea of what I want I'm just getting different opinions for when that day comes.

Don't sell the 5200 until you know WHY the 7100 will make a difference in your shooting and experience.

At most, sell the 5200 with the 18-55 kit lens.
