Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
You may rest assured, the lens assemblies or lenses used on the Nikon 5200 that your husband has already, will work on a Nikon 5300 also. They both have an identical lens mount type, the F type with AF contacts.

You may give your husband a gift of a 5300 by Nikon with the assurance that the lenses he already has for the 5200 will fit and work with it perfectly as well as they work with the 5200 model.
