I'm upgrading my d3100 to either d7200 or a d5600. I was wanting some opinions on which would be best. I plan on using the new one for portraits , sports, and outdoors. Thanks for any help.

Really only two main differences, the d7200 gets to 6 frames per second in continuous high speed shooting vs 5 for the d5600.  More importantly the d7200 is constructed better and is weather sealed (also a little heavier).  I used a d7200 for about a year until I replaced it with a d500, I was very pleased with the performance.

Weather sealing is a blessing. Believe me. If you have a choice of two cameras with and without and the price isn't matter - the sealed one will be more expensive - go into weather sealed one.

I was shooting once a kids friendly football tournament. In the second part of it the heavy rain started. What can I say. I was the only one on the field who was taking photos :D The look on the faces of others with cameras hiding under the tent was priceless. Over two hours of extra shooting for me ;)

Of course the lens also have to be weather sealed :) Just FYI.

To be honest the D5600 would not be that much of an upgrade.  The D7200 is the better of the two,  I have one now having traded up form a D3200, wishing now I would have just bought the D7200 and skipped the D3200 route.  Long range plan right now is to keep the D7200 and purchase a D500 down the road a bit, and use the D7200 as a backup.

I consider D7200 is much better
