Weasel: Hi, I bought my D7200 few days ago. I am pretty impressed as I am coming from a D200. I skipped the D300 and waited and waited for the D400. I also thought about going FX with the D750 - but this would have been a little bit above my budget as I had to buy new FX lenses too. But yes, I am a little bit confused with the controls and I still have to get used to the new camera as the D200 was a little bit more professional than the D7200 regarding the operation. I haven't got the time to do a lot of testing but the new AF and the ISO performance is great.
And yes, the missing AF-ON button is a little drawback (D750 doesn't have it too) - I still don't know if I am going to miss it as I used it on my D200 only from time to time. I am pretty sure there will be a replacement for the D300s in the future - but I was tired of waiting.

After 6 Nikon bodies and many many lenses, I switched to Fuji XT-1 waiting for the damned D400..........1 year and 2 months later I am back to Nikon as Fuji has said their 100-400mm lens won't be out till end of 2016...coudlnt wait that long as I am heavily into birding. Gonna order up a new 300mm F4 VR with 1.4x TC for my new/refurb D7100 !!

CaPi: I just picked up a D7100 - they went on sale :-)

Thanks for bringing a very good camera into my budget range, Nikon :-)

The new sensors are great but I wont invest twice the amount.. Rather get some nice lenses.

Same here. I can live with the small buffer. Shoot jpeg and 1.3x crop anyway for birding. Tons of buffer there. Single shot portraits like a Pro in Raw mode all day long !! Got mine refurb for $600 from BH !!

Why not let us buy USB to lens connectors like Sigma and we'll apply the goddarn update ourselves. Never seen a Fawking backwards company like Nikon. They want to control us at every turn.........

In reply to:

G1Houston: Most ACR processed pictures look considerably better than the JPEGs. Does that mean the JPEGs in D7200 are not as good as they should be?

When I had my XT-1 I would either turn off NR, or run it in its lowest setting and seemed pretty darn good !

What level are you running it at ?

In reply to:

oliviergaston: I'm interested in this camera and would like to know two things from anyone with experience.

1. Would the pictures be in a resolution and quality high enough to make large prints, like 24"x36"?

2. Would the sensor and available fast lenses give very good results in low light without flash?

thank you

I have a house full of prints in the 24" x 36" variety with this camera. Resolution is exceptionally fine !

Low light performance with the XT-1 and it's fast primes is as good as any Nikon and Canon ................(formerly a Nikonian..)

Nikon is really starting to SUCK big time with it's 4-5-6-7 fps when everyone else is getting to 8-10-15 fps processing and buffering...........glad I dumped them earlier this year after being a customer for 12 years(and 6 bodies)....blahhhh May have to give Canon's shiny new 7D MarkII a try !!

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: Nice overall but about 120% over saturation in colours and contrast.

Would have to tweak the settings to get something more natural and realistic.

Also, the white balance is off in some pictures, too much blue.

Although in the same category than the EM1, the colours don't even come close.

I'll pass.

Maybe they played with the default settings and goofed them up...

ARB1: is it just my eyes or does the Olympus OM-D E-M1 look a whole lot better than the Fuji?

Nope. It's just your eyes. The Fuji looks MUCH better. Hehehehehe

In reply to:

Antahkarana: I wrote the President of Nikon Japan last year about their lack of focus and direction. Namely, the 1 system being a flop in North America can be attributed to their "cheap" design (e.g. V2) and lack of interchangeability with other system cameras (e.g. micro 4/3 group). Who wants to be forced into purchasing Nikon glass at high prices?

Another dpreview reader commented that the 1 system sells much cheaper in Japan. I have to concur. The 1 system needs to be sold at a 40-50% discount in North America to generate sales.

My wish is that Canikon both come to their senses and join the micro 4/3 group to help make it a secondary standard to full-frame/APS-C. It would be great if one could purchase a Nikon micro 4/3 body and put an Olympus/Panasonic/Sigma lens on it or vice-versa.

Fuji's roadmap, new product-line, and recent comments to dpreview readers have convinced me to stop buying Nikon... I will be an avid Fuji user from now on.

(Fyi, I never received a reply from Nikon...)

That's why I gave up on Gillette and went the dollar club way. A good old 2 blade still makes 1 week like Gillette's own 15 years ago and only costs me 4$/month...............

And btw, a good old 2 blade still works best on my face even after trying all of the multiple blade razors out there...maybe it's time for an 8 blade system Gillette.......lmao !
