On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (262 comments in total)
In reply to:

citrate: Nikon should have used Sony's 24MP sensor on A6300/6500 and XT2, which is a high performer with 4K capability.

Yes but how is this sensor supposed to be a step forward from the D7200 with less resolution and less dynamic range for a higher price? Personally I couldn't care less about a couple more frames per second, and slightly better high ISO performance.

I agree, I was really hoping for that 24mp 4K chip from the a6300/6500. The new 20.9 one is not only less megapixels (not a huge deal breaker for me), but more importantly less dynamic range as well, according to DxO, FWIW.

It appears as though most of the major digital camera review sites are trying really hard to justify the D7500 for Nikon. I can understand some of the decisions from Nikon's business perspective, though I still think it's sad they haven't yet added IBIS like Sony and Pentax have in this range.

Weasel: I own a D7200 and I am pretty happy with it - although I am thinking about to change to a MILC because of the size. Most of the time I use the combination D7200 + the Sigma 18-35 Art, which delivers awesome IQ but its quite big and I don't have the camera always with me. Seems like the D7500 owns now features I missed on my D7200, a tiltable screen and a better grip - also adding the SnapBridge Feature to this camera is nice to share pictures on the go (although I never had the chance to try this feature).

I agree with you. Was really excited to see what Nikon did with this release. I'm happy about the slight drop in size/weight, and deeper grip. But was really hoping for IBIS to help stabilize the awesome Sigma ART's for APS-C. Not sure if I'll upgrade, or switch to someone else.

marc petzold: I've missed at last one negative Aspect from the D7500 vs the D7200 predecessor - imaging ressources writes about: Camera body: Smaller & lighter than the D7200 but with new features The Nikon D7500 has a redesigned body compared to its predecessor's. Gone are the D7200's magnesium-alloy top and rear panels.

So, the D7500 is the most advanced D7000 series to date, but sadly, Nikon did the Canon way! Since the EOS 60D, gone is the massive, robust alu-mag alloy Body, the 60D was a cheap plastic-phantastique Polycarbonate Shell only.

The D7000 into the opposite, into 2010, went the other way - upgrade from all-plastic D90 Body to party alu-mag alloy body shell, and so is (and was) also the D7100 and D7200..but not so the D7500...so at last, for my taste, without having seen the Body into real life -

Cons

All Polycarbonate Plastic Shell, vs. Partly Alu-Mag Alloy
Only one SD Card Slot (2 Slots since D7000, D7100 & D7200)

Hope DPR would state this into the upcoming Review clear.

I actually see the smaller, lighter body as a huge plus. If you need magnesium pro level build, buy the D500. In this segment where they're competing even more with mirrorless, Nikon needs to go lighter and smaller. I've been using the D5500 (downsized from D610) and love the smaller size for travel and hiking. Yet still feels plenty solid.

There's a list of other things with this release I'm bummed about, like not having IBIS, to compete with mirrorless, Sony, and Pentax. Also a bit discouraged by the drop in dynamic range on this sensor from the D7200.

What's up with the odd protruding strap lugs? Otherwise looks nice, though I was really hoping for IBIS. Will now consider Sony for my next upgrade.

JOrmsby: If only Nikon would finally add IBIS to the D7300, like Pentax and Sony shooters have had for years...

If only Sigma would add OS to their lenses, then I could have a stabilized ART lens on a Nikon APS-C body like I really want.

On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (346 comments in total)

The D5500/5600 is a great camera, but it's disappointing that Nikon still releases DSLR's in 2017 with only 95% viewfinder coverage. They also need to think about IBIS and 4K video if they want to compete with all of the mirrorless (and Sony/Pentax DSLR's) options out there now too.

JOrmsby: I'm not a Sony shooter, but how many FE primes do they need in the 85-100mm range? 85 1.4, 85 1.8, 90 2.8, and 100 2.8. Meanwhile E-mount is still stuck with hardly anything, not to mention other missing FE focal lengths.

Tequila MockingjayBird, so the E-mount 16-70 f/4 works well on an A7R then, right? No difference between crop sensor lenses (E mount) and full frame (FE) ones?

I wish Nikon would add IBIS, 4K and a tilt-screen to the D7300. Nice job Pentax.

I agree the D7200 is a great camera, but specifically what I meant was that I wish Nikon would add IBIS and 4K to the D7300. Perhaps also make the grip deeper and add a tilt screen too and they'd have the perfect DSLR for me.

Ian Leach: It is amazing how differently people think. I like test photos to show the capabilities of the camera/lens, I’m happy to take the photographers skill for granted. Once again there is no Seattle roof tops scene and once again I am moaning about it. It tests the lens corner to corner and close to far. I realize sharpness everywhere is not for all, but would it be so difficult to include such shots for those who care?

I agree with OP in that it would be very useful to see more lens tests done. Especially for the EOS-M system which doesn't get a lot of coverage from other lens review sites. But I've been eager for more lens tests from a quality source like preview for awhile. Plenty of lenses out there to cover that slip through the cracks of other sites.

justmeMN: Olympus' camera-imaging division has lost money for seven years in a row, so the company can't be accused of being greedy. :-)

We hear this retort often enough, and frankly, it's Olympus' business problem. Most other camera companies are profitable (maybe less so than years past), yet Oly is the one always losing money. Clearly they need to restructure their costs and work to lower those.
I look at a company like Sigma who is making some of the best glass on the planet at very reasonable prices, and still making money doing it, without being greedy.

JOrmsby: Just lost my love for Olympus...

Their pricing has been pretty arrogant lately. Mostly with this one and the PEN-F. Perhaps the 12-100 and 50 1.2 could be considered a bit steep as well, IMO.
