On Nikon D750: What you need to know article (110 comments in total)

"What you need to know"....very basic review...and many elements missing ! Leasy job DPR on this one!

"the D750 is unequivocally a better buy than the D810".....without seing the D750 image quality ??? wow........DPR should review and approve such article.

astigmate: As a D700 owner, I feel...hum kinda betrayed by Nikon. So, this entry level, crippled camera is supposed to be the D700 successor ?! feel like an FF D5300 !! I'm tired of waiting for them. I'll keep my D700 until it dies and will look into fuji or sony stuff now on.

Oh, btw, the Sony Full-Frame A7 (24mpx also) cost HALF the price asked for the D750 and it has 1/8000s shutter, focus peaking, nice EVF etc

In fact...it's always a fix of something....!!!

And Nikon need to protect there D810 and D4S market...that's the other side of the game.

As users...we always want more...for cheaper. But as a business, some trade-off need to be done.....and here with the D750 the line is good (not perfect) for the price!....but it's true, the D610 body vs D750 are almost the same...and probably the sensor also (grrrr)

(unknown member): How long before this camera is found to have a common defect?

No shame at all to consider potential defect in any product.

it's like new software version...etc...

Sorry, but I will not say poor customer service in the case of the D800....(yes for D600)...let's be fair

I am waiting at least 3 weeks before ordering mine. With the number of potential new D750 owners, 3 weeks should be sufficient if any major problem to be communicated world wide! And Nikon reaction time is pretty good with and since the D800 incident.

Peter Gordon 01701: So why would anybody buy a D610 body with only a few hundred dollar difference? I am thinking I should sell my D610 and get the D750 as I like the articulating screen and the wifi plus other features.

Me.......i will sell it fast....just on specification, the D750 is much superior body and I will be afraid of the resale value of the D610 in few months.....they will give good discount on new one!....in that price range, the average FF user are not on a budget...and they will go with the D750

Frank C.: 1/200 x-sync
1/4000s
No focus-peeking
AA filter
No AF-ON button
Expensive grip with no fps boost

hmm tough call.... wish it was a pro DX instead that maxed out all specs instead as it would pose no threat to Nikon's current FX lineup plus fill up a gaping hole on the DX side, 1/200s x-sync is sooooo 1990ish

good point

1/200 x-sync.........no big deal for 1/50 sec difference in studio...reduce ambient light

1/4000s.......agree...with prime lens, need ND filter....but need a ND filter anyway in many situations on a bright day at wide aperture...

No focus-peeking......not a deal breaker....but will be nice in video or macrophotography....

AA filter.....agree partially...but my old D3S has AA filter and the image are still great...!!!

No AF-ON button.......if can customize AF-AE lock or front button...not a deal breaker also

Expensive grip with no fps boost......agree....but the future is smaller camera. Than, why to put a grip when they try hard to reduce the weight of the body. If the price is too high, many compatible grip will be available soon anyway...not a deal breaker..!

In reply to:

pgphoto_ca: Any information about the Quiet mode?

it's supposed to be a new shutter

is it quiet like the D4S ?

The D750 can be an excellent second camera for Wedding !!!

and low shutter noise are often important in the church :)

Nukunukoo: Why no AF-ON? Just because you decided it's an "Enthusiast" camera does not mean Pros don't use it. And 1/4000??? WTF???

Because...it's not a pro camera :)

with 150 000 shutter rating....sync speed....2 SD slot......1/4000 :)

pgphoto_ca: Be carefull....it's not a f2.8-f4 with this sensor (2.7x crop)....it's f5.6-f8 or more.......the crop factor need also to be apply to the aperture :)

A real 400mm f4...is much bigger ! :)

we are not talking focal lens or field of view....but aperture :)

it's confusing !

I prefer saying it's a F7.6-10.9 on that camera...and with such aperture...the quantity of light is not good enough for some application.......forget the field of view.......it's not f2.8...it's false information :)

you are right....2.7x X 2.8...almost f7.1 ....even worst :) f11...not very good for sport and bird :) loll

Sorry Richard but field of view is focal length not aperture :)

it's not a f2.8...with a small sensor :)

Olympus don't apply crop factor to the aperture lens. Canon and Nikon do :)

I went to the store to play with the A6000...not bad...but plastic feeling !

One thing I really don't like....when I move the camera to my belt even at few inches from my shirt...the monitor turns off...the EVF eye detection is to sensitive.....need to force the monitor to be always on in some situation and/or use a F button to switch...

I will do some research on that :)
