The Nikon D780 vs. the D750...a personal voyage....
5

I am an event photographer. Both day and night events under varying lighting conditions. I have been using 4 D750s and 3 weeks ago got my 1st D780. After using it for 3 events, here are my conclusions:

1. No battery pack is needed....I have taken 2200 photos and still had almost half battery life left. The weight savings is very significant.

2. The higher ISO is VERY significant for night party events with DJ lighting. I can now get very usable images at ISO 32000 and as high as 40000 with very little noise reduction.

3. Live view is MUCH faster focusing.

4. Nikon does need to make firmware adjustments for use with a flash. The metering is not quite as zoned in as it is with the D750. However, once I get it tuned in, the photos are fantastic. (SB 5000s)

I do not do lens testing or any other comparisons. I don't have time. These are my real world observations.

I have just ordered 2 more D780s....
