This lens would ROCK on my D7200 for headshots and low light shots... can't wait to try it out on the Oct Cruiseboat Photoshoot... ;)

GarysInSoCal: QUESTION... how many of us portrait, wildlife, fashion and scenic photographers take continuous photos of sports cars bearing down on us at a high rate of speed?... NO THANKS Sony... my lowlight shooting Nikon D750 (30+ year Nikon shooter and never changing) is doing just fine at -3EV... and my 500+ photographic awards over on ViewBug will be climbing to over 600 very soon... ;)

OBI656: WOW, this cam is HUGE! Not idea if its design for self-defence or take a picture ... in any case, I wonder If I get prepaid bodybuilding sessions in the final price of this camera to be able to carry this brick around.

As the girls... SIZE MATTERS... the D5 will get you laid... :D

Amazing how the D7100 got a 'Gold Award' while the D7200 got Silver. The D7200 has a much bigger buffer, better low light autofocusing, WiFi, longer battery life, sharper and cleaner Expeed 4 image processor, and better high ISO performance with an extended range... ALL features that prevented me from purchasing the D7100. Thank you Nikon for all the upgrades I cared about and wanted to see... ;)

SungiBr: It's strange that people are praising the -3EV focus capabilities of the D7200, but forget to mention that Pentax already done that, two years ago with K5II and K3 after.
Of course I'm not that ingenius to think the AF performance of K5/K3 are on par with Nikon in every aspect, but they at least could point that it is as precise and sensitive.

Quit tryin to revive Pentax digital... it's DEAD in the water. If they don't come out with some kind of breathtaking product line very soon, they're gonna be outta business in short order. Nobody's buyin Pentax cause their lenses suck and their strobe units are extremely limited in selection. Their market share is non-existent and their distribution comes from another planet.

GarysInSoCal: I'm a 30+ year Nikon shooter... this lens is a TOTAL WASTE of time and money... ridiculously heavy and very limited zoom range. I wouldn't take this lens if Nikon gave it to me... hey NIKON... WAKE THE F UP!... your sensors work AMAZING in low light... so PASS on the F2.8 heavy-azs lenses... here's your next lens offers:

In FX format... 20-100 F4 ED-VR N-Series

In DX format... 15-90 F4 ED-VR N-Series

Yo TJ... read the specs Einstein... you don't have to be a user to see how FREAKIN HEAVY and HUGE this lens is. My 24-120 F4 N-Series is VERY SHARP and half the weight and size of this behemoth... :P

Hey Samsung... WAKE UP!... Galaxy MEGA has 6.3 inch screen and replaceable battery (I own one and love it). Best phone you ever made (in my opinion). No other phone on the market can match it for displaying a digital image portfolio... blows away the Note 4 and 5 in that arena.

GarysInSoCal: WOW... I'm confused DPR... here's a camera that's made significant improvements over it's predecessor (the D7100 with GOLD award)... yet it gets a lower review (SILVER award)... how could that be?... :/

Hey Papi and Tecno... although I am now an FX shooter (with D750 and D810)... those features I listed would STILL be the deciding factor for me in buying the D7200 over the NX1. When your camera's battery goes dead, you are DONE shooting and that thing in your hand is now a doorstop. When you don't have the right lens for the jobs you're shooting, you're going to LOSE JOBS. The lack of lenses available for the NX1 is a SEVERE handicap in my books, not to mention the very limited dedicated flash options. I still have 3 DX lenses left, and although I am impressed with what the D7200 has to offer, as many times as Nikon comes out with 'the next best thing' in the DX lineup, I'll probably be waiting for either a D400 or a D7300... just to see what they have to offer... ;)

Buzzzzz... WRONG ANSWER! DXO Mark gave the D7200 an 87 sensor score while the NX1 got an 83. The NX1 only takes 500 pics on a fully charged battery while the D7200 takes more than twice as many at 1100. The D7200 can shoot at 14bit lossless compression while the NX1 can only shoot 12bit. The D7200 has a 'optical viewfinder' while the NX1 has a battery draining and far less sharper electronic viewfinder. The NX1 only has one memory card slot while the D7200 has two. Viewfinder screen size on the D7200 is 3.2 while the NX1 is only 3.0. And the BIGGEST advantages for the D7200 is it is $300 less in price and it has 100s of Nikon (and after market) lenses and flashes that are compatible with it... :D

bolador: As a former D90 waiting for this release to upgrade. I studied the prices and boght a D610. :D

For the record... the D7200 has a FAR SUPERIOR low light auto focusing system over the D610, -3 EV with 51 AF points VS 39 AF points at -2 EV... ;)

In reply to:

Randy Benter: The T6s should get a firmware upgrade to add AF micro adjust. I would never use a DSLR without this capability. It would be nice to have a smaller DSLR like this as an option, but apparently Canikon believe that enthusiasts and pros would never want a smaller/lighter camera. The competition is offering some nice options (e.g. E-M1 and X-T1), but Canon still doesn't get it.

You're right... Canon STILL doesn't get it... and if you want greater performance in a smaller and lighter camera... checkout the Nikon D3300... lighter then the Olympus and Canon... much improved sensor with much stronger dynamic range and low light scores than both at DXOMark. I own one... freakin little camera ROCKS!
