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. ;)
io_bg: What a great read. Now, Sigma, make some DX primes! Pretty please!
Yeah, the 30/1.4 isn't very good for the price. I hope their next DX primes are cheaper than it because most DX users are on a budget :)
What a great read. Now, Sigma, make some DX primes! Pretty please!
bgbs: That's it folks, with these specs don't expect D400.
Papi61, a lot of things. First, a D8x0-like body. Second, 9-10 fps. Third, AF-On button. Fourth, Group-point AF. And quite a bit more.
lacikuss: Maybe this new d7200 is almost at the 70d level?
"DR can be recovered in raw but missed focus can't."No, DR can't always be recovered in RAW. Still, you can recover a whole lot more from Nikon RAWs compared to Canon RAWs.
RichRMA: 6fps? Ha, ha, ha!
So what? Can you guess whose AF is better?
Zvonimir Tosic: Nice confectionery DSLR, that suits modern trends. Which means, Nikpn does its usual job of not adding too much into it to make it really stand out and turn heads. It is more important to them to release another update in 12 months. Idea for next year's update: swivel screen. In two years, USB 3. In 10 years, it may be a formidable crop camera.Quite Nikon. Quite predictable.
Except that the D7000 line is refreshed every two years... ;)
ed kelly: Sold my D7100 because I was unhappy with the higher ISO performance. I purchased a D750 a few months ago, and I am very happy with it. I was hoping the D7200 would have the same body as the D750. Didn't happen.
I am sold on the U1 and U2 settings with auto ISO on my D750. Happy they are included on the D7200,but not sure I will pull the trigger on the D7200 yet.
Seems to be a debate on which sensor is in the D7200. If the quality can be up to par with the D750, I think I would purchase it. I am a birder,and any additional reach is a big plus.
IQ will be slightly better compared to the D7100 thanks to the new processor. There's no way it would be on par with a camera whose sensor is more than double in size.
slippedcurve623: Umm so is anyone actually intrested in this camera over the d610? Perhaps its not my place to say (canon user) but it ain't no 7dii/d400 and you can get full frame for 300$ more, except for bird shooters perhaps...
I'm not a bird shooter but I'd definitely prefer it over the D610. In fact I seriously consider buying it to replace my aging D90.
