In reply to:

vesa1tahti: The D7200 is the best APS-C- camera in the whole universe. With respect to IQ. Switched from D7000 to D7200.

Compare it with the D300-S or even the D200 - Just compare them and check how a Flagship runs down nowadays

Unless you picture wildlife a lot and expose it to rain and wind often - Its a shame nowadays that a Flagship like the 7200 does not have a sturdy weather sealed body

Speedup ? There is only 2 ways out of 3 to do something - RIGHT - CHEAP - FAST - You can only pick 2 and one must be out - SPEED is a chosen one, what is left ?

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1460 comments in total)

When the budget is limited it makes sense to go for an FF Camera and just buy our most precious Fixed Focal Lenth lens, not spending loads of money on a whole array of new lenses

What I just can´t understand, and would like somebody to explain it to me, is how an affordable FFs, like the D750 for example - affordable yet costing quite a bit - How can they need to limit shutter and flash sync speed to make them affordable ?

My question is about spec-price, I could buy an affordable FF and be happy without 1/8000 and 250 sync, but should´t ANY "affordable" option like that cost much less than what a D750 costs ?

I repeat, is not about the need of those specs is about the relation spec-price

Shouldn´t ANY camera, nowadays, that costs more than 2.000€, have something so simple as 1/8000 and 250 sync ? Or are these specs so expensive on an FF that to be "affordable" must be ditched aside ?

Wouldn't mind to have this camera, don't get me wrong, but the price is ridiculous !!!

Nowadays a camera that costs 2.300€ and can´t shoot at 1/8000 its simply - A JOKE !!!

The D810 costs now 2.430€ - Is everyone asleep ???

I rarely use more than 1/4000, I prefere to do fast speed photos at the studio with low ISO closed diaphragm and just add a speed light

But not having a Body that performs above 1/4000 and still pay 2.300€ for it its really Nikon mocking with customers

Maybe you are right about some Sony issues but if I had now the exact amount of money to buy a 750 this would be my last choice - No value for money - It´s like selling an expensive bicycle with specs like - the brakes don't work if you ride at more than 20 miles/hour - I Love Nikon and I hope to be able to get myself a 810 but this so called affordable FFs are a joke for their price range - Don´t get me wrong, offer me a 750 and I will love it and keep it for a long time, good enough for my professional activities - But not for the amount it costs

Jaskspra, I was not comparing them at all, please read all the posts sequence, I was answering another guy who brought the 70D to the discussion and just saying that the D750 does not even perform at shutter and sync level as the D70, witch is old and weak and faraway from the D750 - how can the 750 cost what it costs ???

My main issue/complain is price - 750 specs vs price, CONSIDERING the whole market - IS RIDICULOUS

I know most of the time we don't need 1/250 sync or 1/8000 shutter, and the idea of launching affordable FFs is noble, but if that is the idea than they must be cheaper, much cheaper - The problem is the price - It is not affordable - A camera that costs what the 750 costs, must have 1/250 sync and 1/8000 shutter, these are specs so old and cheap - Is so ridiculous and so in front of our noses that we just can´t see how stupid Nikon is calling us - The D70 is a wonderful example, it had 1/500 sync speed and 1/8000 shutter - LIGHT YEARS ??? WHERE ??? HOW ??? - LOL - SEE NOW how stupid Nikon costumers are made by Nikon nowadays because of price ranges ???

In reply to:

mls149: Why can't Nikon put a 1/8000 shutter speed on this "pro" camera. It certainly is a desirable feature to this 43 yr pro. Can it add that much to the cost?

That is the reason why Nikon will go down the drain, it´s making limited specs = affordable FFs, witch is good as an option - The problem is... The price is not affordable - RIDICULOUS when you look out at the rest of the Market - However you look at it, and even when 1/8000 may not be essential, a camera that costs what the 750 costs within nowadays Market options MUST HAVE 1/8000

Koray: What did you expect when people have been pushing for six figure ISO capabilities?

K.

Nothing to do with ISO - It is still better to set 100 ISO and have a powerful flash than having a dimmer one and rase the ISO - The guys who value and paid for a good flash 30 years ago are still valuing and paying for them nowadays
