D7500 to accompany my D7200

I have been pondering a second DX camera to avoid frequently switching lenses for some of my shooting scenarios. I came close to getting another D7200, but I am now pleased that I have waited.

The D7500 fits my bill perfectly, better than a second d7200 would:

- It gives me an extra room for burst rate and buffer.

- It has better metering and processing, which results in more accurate exposures and AF.

- Its tilted screen expands my options when shooting from unusual angles.

- It's slightly lighter, and I like the new proportions and grip.

- It has better video (I am not a videographer, but I find myself using this feature more and more).

I am not worried in the slightest about the single card. My trusty D700 has a single card, and it's a model widely used by wedding photographers in the past. In fact, I've never had a card fail on any of my cameras.

All in all, the D7500 is a wonderful camera for me. I will be getting one very soon.
