    It's more about the lenses and not camera itself. Don't listen to people saying "oh the more you pay for the camera the better". That's partially true, but you can get close (or even better) results with cheaper camera and amazing lens.

    Anyway. I've purchased Nikon D5300 with Nikon DX Nikkor 35mm 1.8G lens. That's really amazing setup for taking closeup shots (portraits, half/full body's) and this lens gives you great shots in lowlight. Performs really well in shooting HD video but I recommend buying external microphone if you want to capture audio as well.

    Hope that helps!
