2020 started with a bang for Nikon with the announcement of the D780.

But alas, it it not the camera for me because I cannot justify the hefty price just for the much better video. I don't shoot video and I don't like editing videos! So why should I pay extra for something I won't be using?

Another deal breaker is no pop up flash - I do use it as a convenience when shooting outdoors to fill in shadows and lift the photo up a little on low contrast days.

Finally, vertical grip lovers will lament the lack of that facility.

As someone who has purchased Nikon's iconic milestone cameras - D70, D7000, D750 - it is a shame I won't participate in the hype anymore.

It simply is not the camera for you.

look at it as D610 upgrade. It makes much more sense then.

Nikon closed the D6xx line, and D780 is Nikon’s new basic FX model. It is not the D750 upgrade; perhaps more like a replacement.
