Scottelly: Well it's ABOUT TIME! At least Nikon FINALLY did it . . . made a camera that can follow the D300s with a reasonable size buffer and good, professional level features.
Still . . . now they need a D400 that features faster shooting speed. 6 fps just isn't up to snuff. They need to introduce an 8 fps D400 with an even bigger buffer, 4K video capability, and everything that this camera has . . . but with UHS-II memory card slots, so the buffer will empty in just 10 or 15 seconds, rather than the 30 seconds it will take to empty the buffer of this camera. They could include GPS to help differentiate it from this camera even more.
This D7200 will sell well though. That bigger buffer is a major selling point. (The most important upgrade they put into this camera, as far as I'm concerned.) This is a camera that I'd consider buying . . . but I'd rather get a D400 with an even bigger buffer, more fps, and faster memory card slots. I'd pay $300 more for an upgrade like THAT . . . maybe more.
The D7300 will have 8fps. The D7400 an AF ON button. D7500 maybe a flip screen etc. All in 2 year increments. So much time for all these revolutionary upgrades.
My last Nikon was a D300s and it's going to stay that way. I'll give it to my nephew along with all the Nikon glass. Nikon simply fails to excite me as it once did. These comatising iterations are nothing but a blatant money grabbing exercise. I have moved away from Nikon because the D400 never arrived and never will. DX Canon, Samsung, Sony and Pentax is where I am looking with interest.
Gazeomon: This must be the ugliest camera I have ever seen and I shoot Pentax for 2 years now (K5IIs, K3). My K3 is ugly but a very good photographic tool, I can live with it. This hideous looking new FF thing must be a truly amazing camera then. Not that I am getting too serious about the looks of a camera but I had to swallow hard a couple of times.
Tan 68Mind reading is not Your strong point.
Trk: Just want to remind you how Samsung works. Samsung camera divison is together with mobile division. In this industry maximum support is 18 months - I do not know who suddenly decided it is 18 months but all manufacturers in computing industry accepted this. Therefore for Samsung camera consider maximum usefulness 18 months - e.g. new 16-50 PZ lens does not work with Samsung older NX cameras like NX100 and never will unless big push from customers. This is how Samsung works, they do not support product older than 18 months, provide minimal support, perhaps deliberately create incompatibility issues to make customers buy new models.On the other hand reliable camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon will never do this, you can rely on their honor and service. They maintain compatibility and service all their products.
Trk, did You just say 'reliable camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon'? I have been with Nikon for many years and left them for their incompetent, arrogant and expensive service culture here in Australia, among other things. I haven't missed them for a second.

Saleen1999: Ever since these Mirrorless cameras have been on the market, I still don't understand why they are so popular. Can someone explain what all the hoopla is about?
Been living in a cave somewhere near the Altai mountains for the last 7 years?
DPR has chosen a trashy headline for this interview, which is nothing but speculative garbage.
Another entry level Nikon masterpiece, which makes upgrading from the D3300 an absolute 'must', especially with not having this horrible GPS anymore. Keep it coming Nikon we are so excited about Your innovative spirit and bargain pricing. Can't wait to get my hands on the black Nikon plastic with a new number on it.
www_zeeshan_de: Missing the innovative A7S review, missing the innovative A7 II review, but what we got here is the nothing new Nikon D750 review...
Sorry Rishi but I don't see any eye popping differences in IQ between the D750, D610, D810 or even the D7100 in real world conditions unless You are an anal pixel peeper fanatic. To me the D750 is just another boring iteration of another Nikon DSLR. Where is Nikon's mirror less FF camera and fitting compact lenses? Others innovate, Nikon just iterates and regurgitates. They make good cameras and lenses but, hell they are boring, heavy, big and uninspiring. Yawn, Nikon
Do these new implementations do actually translate into some meaningful image quality improvements, differentiation? I find it hard to see any.
mpgxsvcd: What are we all complaining about? Just 6 years ago we had pathetic burst rates, 12 Megapixels was the Max instead of the min available, Video was non existent, Quiet shutters were almost unheard of, Auto Focus was only slightly better than manual focus, and the cameras cost more than they do today.
If you can't take great pictures and videos with the latest cameras then you really can't blame the camera anymore.
You forgot 2 AF ON buttons, 14 flash card slots and a nano mini drone landing pad.
sharkcookie: Hilarious! The comments made my day! Thanks everyone! :)
deserthawk742: My Pentax K3 with the 3 classic limited lenses will easily beat all of the other cameras in this round up!
@RichRMA. That's the exact reason I switched from Nikon to Pentax and with my 5 ltd. primes I feel contend and don't miss Nikon for a minute.The D7100 is simply no match in many ways. IBIS with these sweet primes is something neither Nikon or Canon can offer.
buckaroo1947: I used to trust DPREVIEW, but not so much anymore. Going around the web and seeing what other reviewers have to say (which for the most part, most are in agreement with similar findings) then you see DPREVIEW out in left field and seems to be favoring one brand over another. In my opinion with Consumer DSLR the K-3 rules and that is supported by many other reviewers... And if you don't want to dish out the bucks then the K-50 rules within its price range and even several more expensive popular brands.. A lot of people buy by popularity. That is ok. My personal camera (I have 6) but only one DSLR which is a K-50 with 18-55mm, 50-200mm, 28-80mm, 28-200mm, 50mm f/1.4 prime - And I am still under $700... Does what I want it to do and that is the name of the game so to speak... I'll leave the pixel peeking to the "pixel peepers" while I am out taking pictures having fun creating my own creations. I will leave counting resolution lines on a computer to someone else...
Well, Nikon's marketing strategies did not work on me. They stuffed up their high end APSC line up and lost me for Pentax and I don't miss them at all. Canon & Nikon are asleep at the wheel. They do what they always did. ITERATE & CRIPPLE to cover their other product lines. The other makers maybe smaller right now but they do INVENT new technologies and are just about to make Canon and Nikon look stale and 'yesterday'. I have been with Nikon for 25 years and I left them because they don't make a compelling camera for me. The Samsung NX1 is another system I'll watch closely now. Quite a compelling case for me.
What 'hoops' are You talking about?
Gazeomon: K3 is my favourite dlsr at this point, especially paired with ltd. pentax primes. It's a compact high quality kit I can take anywhere. Made me forget all my Nikon stuff.
@ armandino. I do respect Your opinion about the ergonomics of the K3 but You are the first and only person I came across who did not like the handling of the K3. I had a similar experience with the Olympus OMD 5.

These video reviews are very good and helpful. Please keep them on Your menu. Thanks.
Another 'Hasselbladed' show toy for the discerning coffee shop style nazi.
chippedoff: I am rather disappointed in the k-3. i recently did a side by side test with identical manual and full auto settings between the k-3 and the Nikon d3300. The D3300 did so much better as far as sharpness and good colour. I can't justify the price of the K-3 even if it's weather sealed and the fact that my k-30 takes better photos under certain conditions. For apparently not having a low pass filter the k-3 images have a haze.
Yes, total garbage!! You need visual counselling!
