I was approached the other day by a lady friend who knows very little about cameras and photography. She lamented that in low light, her smart phone camera blurred, and when shooting performers on stage, it overexposed their faces. She noted that with my camera, I didn't hve those problems. I showed her an app for her smart phone that gives her control of ISO, and shutter speed while in manual, or exposure compensation when in Programmed. She is very happy.
I didn't suggest buying a camera...

I had my computer guy install an SSD because he said my HDD was the cause of my slow down of my computer. It was taking more than five minutes for my computer to boot up. He installed the HDD and now my computer boots up instantly. It takes 12 seconds for the first screen to come up and then as soon as I enter my passcode the computer boots up in less than one second!
I thought the answer would be more RAM. My computer guy really knows what he’s doing. He’s a guy in his 50s like me an old-school guy, an old timer who knows the old stuff and the new stuff. You wouldn’t believe how happy I am. Just wanted to share.

safely overclocked processors. If you do want to get a new computer try Boxx. they know what they are doing with this.
Took a morning walk from 5 in the morning until about 9:30(Savannah). remember to leave your lense outside the hotel room. I was there in October and the tropical type climate rendered the lense fairly useless a while coming from the refrigerated hotel room to the densely moist atmosphere although that may not be an issue at this time of year. I used only the nikkor 14-24 on the walk and that worked out well. so your ultra wide angle I think you will find useful. some of the good houses are lit at night so getting out before dawn was useful. the Owens Thomas house will be a good subject in this regard. Another bonus with getting out early in this town-I had the streets to myself for about an hour and a half. The Cathedral is well lit for a predawn shot and then catch the interiors on the way back. Have attached the Mercer house, made well known by the movie Midnight in the garden of Good and Evil
the d5600 is one of the few Nikon cameras with no low pass filter. that is one main difference between the two cameras you speak of. the low pass filter averages each 3 square area of pixels to counter the effects of moire at the expense of sharpness or clarity. this is an oversimplified explanation. so if max sharpness is your goal you may consider the d 5600.
may be oversimplifying-but it would seem that the more pieces of glass the light travels through the more it will be affected-hence the point made often that 'prime' fixed lense will be sharper than a zoom lense with its additional layers of glass. same with filters?
not to piggyback onto the original question but: where can I find the least amount of compression. for example a facebook version of my image tends to look a little mushy-500px much better. what is the best outcome possible for web viewing which preserves the original image as close as possible to the native psd(in my case)file? does this differ from one website creation vendor to another?
