  • Unlike previous generations of Nikon cameras, d7100 did not come with a protector, suggesting that after iPhone made the Gorilla glass popular in 2007, Nikon has finally moved on and uses the same ...
  • The primes go to f1.8 and f1.4!
  • Replied in D750 is lighter.
    Indeed the new D750 is now lighter than D7100/D7200.
  • Yeah, they should. If we cheer on as Nikon is doing this type of "upgrade," the next major feature sets on the D7300 will be a new color scheme on the body. Want a pink or gold dSLR? D7300 is the ...
  • Or something like that.  One full model number up really should include more substantial improvement to show us the road in the future.
  • You have an EM1, go with the Oly version. Get the Panasonic version if you want something smaller and lighter and don't mind that it is shorter by 5mm in the longer end — these are the most ...

    "D750 + 70-200 f4 VR: $2300 + $1200 = $3500"

    Match f2.8 with f2.8 please, and OEM vs OEM because the fundamental costs between OEM and 3rd party are very different. Oh Gee, Nikon does not have...

    Unless, Nikon is preparing to exit the DX market eventually to be either a FF only company or a FF-pro plus mirror-less-consuer that replace the whole DX dSLR line. Both of this will cause DX...

    "A 50-150mm f2.8 would not be lighter /cheaper than the excellent 70-200mm f4."

    A f2.8 lens is a f2.8 lens in allowing twice the amount of light to reach the sensor thus lowering the ISO needed...

    "A 50-150mm f2.8 would not be lighter /cheaper than the excellent 70-200mm f4."

    Besides the fl that is too long for the DX, a f2.8 lens is a f2.8 lens in allowing twice the amount of light to...

  • Replied in No.
    +1 and I like the 40 mm eq fl.

    As a user, we should only care about what features are more useful than others. One speculation why the D7200 is so conservatively upgraded is cost. They want to keep the cost down to the same...

    "So you want $1000 fast but heavy, aps-only prime lenses to pair with your $500 A"

    No you miss the point that a DX only prime would be smaller and cheaper than the FX version. The DX only 35/1.8...

    "D5500 mid-range DX, D7200 high-end DX"

    Not sure if I can fully agree with that. In some way, the D5500 outspent the D7200. D5500 has a modern body that is lighter and smaller than the old...

    "The best new one to develop would be a 50-200 f2.8 for DX, new 17-50mm f2.8, "

    I would make a 50-150/2.8 to keep the size of the lens under control — the key advantage of DX over FX is the...

    "So again, if you consider equivalence there is absolutely no point making fast and bright APS-only optics. You can switch to FF and have better optics for less."

    This is precisely what upsets...

  • Or they don't know how to make lens nice and inexpensive.

  • Replied in Agree.
    I agree.  Either the D7200 design team never met those working on D5500 or that Nikon is deliberating holding D7200 back to make the D750 the "upgrade" for D7100 shooters (or for future D5500 ...
  • The sensor in 610 is better than the one in 7100 in term of noise at high ISO.  However you must think about what lens and the aperture you plan to use, which impact the ISO settings.  For ...
