Hello, new to the forum.

Am looking for a second camera for my part time photography hobby/business.
I do quite a bit of unpaid sports photography (which I really enjoy) and a fair bit of family sessions, senior portraits, and some small weddings (though I don't enjoy as much) I get paid for.
I currently have the D7200 as my main shooter, and an old D3200 as a second.
Lenses include Nikon 35mm 1.8, Nikon 50mm 1.8, Sigma 17-50 2.8 and Sigma 70-200 2.8.
My question is should I get the D500 or the D750?
Is the D500 that much better than the D500 to warrant another DX camera? Is the shallower DOF and better low light performance on the 750 the better route?
Currently seeing the 750 for about $400-$500 less than the D500. I realize the 17-50 is not compatible on the 750, so I would probably opt for the Tamron 24-70 G2 to fill its role on that body.
My gut is telling me to get the 750. I am a fairly competent sports shooter and I do well with the 7200. I think the camera that can help me offer more to customers is the D750.
Thank you.

well I have done my homework I too use the D7200 which is an excellent camera

but I don't want to throw away 4million pixels for the sake of a D500

and the D750 has the AA/filter which puts me of

the ideal situation would be in my case to hang on and wait till after the

pagan festival,

and see if Nikon will bring out a D760  or a proper upgrade to the D7200

as in my opinion the D7500 is a downgrade to the D7200,

and again you would be throwing away 4million pixels  and that does make a difference regardless what others say.

as I also have the Fujifilm X-T2   I may just sell my Nikon gear and invest all in the new

X-TH Fujifilm  which comes out end of February

the Nikons are all excellent cameras  but you have to make the decision

if I were you I would hang on till later on in the year and stick to my D7200 after all

you have great IQ  already with this camera, so are you relay going to gain much??????
