jimofcan: It would be nice if Nikon would offer a Camera that DOES NOT do the video thing! Might drop the price a few bucks too.
I thought the Hi ISO and low light performance was very good.
The 7500 does feel fairly good in the hands, way better than the D7000 ever did. Too bad it isn't being offered with a grip.

Got the DF for that !!!!!

Anyone having problems with this new Nikon 24-85mm VR regarding the stiffness of the zoom ring? I got a copy from B&H and am sending it back because the zoom is too stiff -way more than any previous lens from Nikon I've purchased. Nikon advised me to exchange the lens for a new one as it should not be uncomfortably tight. Admittedly I tried the lens on a D3100. It's much more uncomfortable on the D3100 than a bigger body like my D7000. Camera heft matters with this lens as it's meant for FX. I liked everything else about the lens. Some say stiffness is a good thing as it retards lens creep and probably will loosen a little over time. That said, I still think my copy was way too stiff while trying to zoom. Any comments would be welcome.
