win39: Shouldn't the development be over with or nearly so? Nikon never makes an announcement like this. Does this mean it is delayed?
They've made such announcements before. Namely the D4s, 800mm f/5.6 and others.
Daniel L: First time i heard DSLR giant announced development of the flagship, any of DSLR bodies if that matters. Leak not longer generated interest?
the D4s was pre-announced the same way
Treeshade: What is D4 used for? Sports, wildlife, journalism. It has to be durable, reliable, focus fast, shoot rapidly, and produce consistent results.
To this date, D4 and 1Dx are still unchallenged in those area. So... expect nothing new but incremental update.
We've been getting incremental updates since the first digital camera.
PatrickSean: Same body like d3 but mirrorless and 15+ fps and super high resolution evf with no lag. That'll be awesome! And maybe even 4k
The pro FX line will be the last one to be converted to mirrorless, if that ever happens!
GarysInSoCal: Gold award... cool... and the much improved D7200... Silver award... interesting... LOL!
How is it much improved? The D7100 is already an excellent camera. The only real drawback I can think of is the small buffer which is limiting only a few shooting scenarios.
Next up: Sigma 28mm f/1.4 Art!
GlennKoehler: This leaves me wondering why they bothered developing a 24mm version at all?
There's quite a difference between 20 and 24mm.
Dirk Nuary: So, what is the advantage of 1" sensor over APSC? RX10 is bigger and heavier than A6000, just take A6000, it has bigger sensor and better AF.
You clearly missed the point of the review.
GThomp: Not impressed - chromatic aberration and edge softness at f7.1 is completely unacceptable especially considering the price of the lens. I'm getting better IQ from my old cheap 18-105mm on my D7100 but perhaps the bokeh is better and the 16-80 has a larger max aperture. Have looked at samples from other sites and they tell the same story - way overpriced and certainly not a classic lens
The difference between 16 and 18mm is minimal. F/2.8 and f/3.5 are quite similar as well - much more than the price difference between both lenses.
ecka84: Actually, 4.5-108mm f/2.8 is equivalent to 25-600mm f/16.
Actually, if it's f/2.8 then it's always f/2.8.
LastChance4U: I moved up from the D90 to this camera and I am simply blown away by the performance of the D7200. I considered the Sony A7II and the D7200 and I'm super pleased with my choice.
Thanks for the feedback, I'm a D90 user as well and was considering an upgrade to the D7200. Not until the D90 is still working though :)
What a great article!The edited RAW file does show a lot more than the unedited one however in my opinion both the highlights and shadows are pushed beyond the point of looking good. The whole image has a greenish tint and contrast is quite low.
Stollen1234: there is a reason why Canon is the world leader in Photography..lol sony sensors are better..yaeh right..
Aren't they better?
beavertown: Budget users should forget about Nikon from now on. This lens makes the Nikon 50mm 1.8 prime lens look exorbitant.
There will always be the old AF-D 50/1.8 for those who find the AF-S too expensive (and have a body with a built-in motor).
Mark K: They should replicate 50f1.2, 85 f1.2 or if bold enough, the 600F4 IS II
Oh yeah. There's such a huge market for these lenses.
Retzius: Looks decent, but how many more of these minor upgrade models can they keep pumping out?
DPreview honestly could just post the D5300 or D5400 review with an addendum saying its a bit better.
Except that there's no D5400 :P
ttran88: They could have possibly reused d7100 samples and call it a day.
iudex, the sensor is NOT the same. The D7100 uses a Toshiba sensor, while the D7200 has a Sony one. That's why they differ ISO span and resolution (24.1 vs 24.2 MP) differ.
ZeneticX: Canon is like Apple now
they don't give two sh!t about the competition because they know no matter what products they roll out, there's a solid base of loyal customers that will buy them in an instant
"Apple makes the best smartphones, tablets, and computers on the market."I can't really agree here...
AngryCorgi: "There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony..."
And that's why your sensors are 2+ generations behind Sony and Nikon and Samsung.
The D4/s and Df use Nikon sensors. Plus, Nikon always do some additional tweaking on Sony's sensors.
Scottelly: Sigma should make a 20-50mm f2.8 full-frame lens and a 10-20mm f2.8 full-frame lens, to go with their 50-150mm f2.8 OS lens, which they should update to an S model. In fact, all three should be produced as S models. Then they should make two long, f2.8 OS primes in the S range too - a 200mm f2.8 OS S and a 300mm f2.8 OS S.
The 50-150 f/2.8 is not a full frame lens. ;)
