Nope .... I’m not getting rid of my Nikon DX system
12

Getting home today from shooting a real estate shoot with my D7200 with a 10-24 lens I know I would not want to sell all of my DX gear to end up shooting real estate with the bigger lenses in full frame. I really like my DX gear. I might even sleep with it at my side tonight🤔😁

Whatever makes you happy, that's what matters.  

I have several FF bodies but I always have the same feeling as yours after using my D500 again.

Re: Nope .... I’m not getting rid of my Nikon DX system

I agree on APSC for now! Not sure about the future though, the last Nikon DX was announced in 2018, the D3500. The D7500 was in 2017 and D5600 in 2016.

Several years ago I went from a D300s(DX) to D610(FX) and it was a significant upgrade, mostly due to sensor/processor tech and mp. I have since added a D500 for bird photography and it too is excellent.

For what you shoot, the D7200 with proper lenses certainly will produce excellent results. If we all spent as much time honing our photography skills as we do studying gear, we'd all be better photographers.

Going from a D300s to a D610 is a huge step up, way more so than the difference between the OP's D7200 and his D750.

Err... the last “Nikon DX” announced and released was the Z50.  Just saying.

And no, I’m not planning to get rid of or stop using my D500 or for that matter my ‘full spectrum’ converted D7200.  Though I really enjoy my Z6 too.

Agreed. And my level of experience at the time made it hard to understand how much improvement I should attribute to full frame, vs just improvements in technology. It made me nervous to even try DX again, but the D500 is excellent (just as the D7200 and D7500 are).

Which is a different mount with a narrow lens range.

Clearly but the question was about 'DX'!  Equally clearly, Nikon's direction of travel is mirrorless in Z mount (whether FX or DX) with a nod to top end FX and high end glass.

Is anyone really anticipating another DX DSLR to ever launch; especially at the top end rather than a slight warming over of the 3000/5000 range to move a few more units?

I shot the D7200 for a long time and with the right lens, it produces fantastic RAW files. When Sony introduced all of the different A7 models, I resisted many temptations to upgrade.  However, when the Z7 came out, I gave in.  Those 46 mp are heavenly and the IBIS is divine.

I agree!

I would be interested in a version with on sensor phase detection, serious video implementation and optical viewfinder. No slight warming though, I could not even tell the difference between D5200 and D5600. Problem of top end DX for me is that it is too close to low end FF. And both is expensive for just-for-fun shooters like me (while not making  the major difference, though I am no more excluding the jump). I like optical viewfinders though their time seems to be running out. Still, I cannot imagine third parties producing any new mount lens for F or Z. Nikon seems to be getting premium exclusively.

How did you find the transition outdoors, bright light, between the OVF vs. The Z7?
