What's the best non-Adobe professional editor? Looking closely at Capture One...

So does this mean they'll no longer be developing and upgrading the standalone version?

Look nice but sorry Manfrotto, I just bought a Sirui which is already perfect for me.

Congrats to Nikon on a job well done. They seem to get the most out of the Sony manufactured sensors. I can't wait for them to bring BSI to their mid-range models at lower MP counts (i.e.D750 and APS-C).

Does it have a power/electronic zoom? Or is it manual?

James Pilcher: What ever happened to improving the camera with that delicious Zeiss 24-200mm f/2.8 zoom? Just wondering...

From what I've read, this 24-600 lens is actually a little better than the 24-200.

Ed B: $1700.00 for a camera with a one-inch sensor is a ridiculous amount. I'm sure Sony will sell a lot of them but I just don't see it being worth that kind of money.

Naturally, that's only an opinion and I'm sure many people will disagree with me.

A new Olympus OMD-EM10 Mk3 with 12-100 PRO lens will run you $1950 and still not give you everything this guy does, except a slightly larger sensor. And franky, I think Sony's 1-inch BSI sensor's complete pretty closely with m34's.

Judging mostly on skin tone:
Sony - 30
Nikon -23
Canon - 19

I've done that same section of hiking with an Oly Em-10 and 12-40 PRO, which I agree works perfect for backpacking. But sorry dude, a using a 60 liter Osprey pack is not 'ultralight backpacking.'

Matsu: As long as the full frame cameras keep the F mount, thecameras will be a wild success. They instantly bring along 1 out of every 3 users, and support the most extensive lens catalogue in a the marketplace. Change it and all bets are off, this is not the time to alienate users. F mount is their strongest asset, there are no advantages to changing it since both bodies and lenses can already be made size competitive with full frame mirrorless.

For DX/APSC, just follow Canon with a mount that's downsized for the smaller sensor. This allows cheaper cameras for people who don't have system wide investments in Nikon gear.

If they keep F-mount and add IBIS to it, it will be a success.

Richard Murdey: I see the viewfinder coverage as been increased from 97% to 98%.

Would it have killed them to bump it up the extra 2% to 100%? Is it a contractual obligation that a 100% finder is reserved for the 5D series?

Exactly. My 3 year old, entry level Olympus EM-10 has 100% coverage, and I believe now sells for only $299.

98% VF coverage on a $2000 full frame camera in 2017? What a joke. Because all of us enthusiast photographers love guessing what's actually going to appear in our final image.

elementare: To everyone that is complaining, you can always buy the competitor one from Canon, the 80D, that has just one sd card slot. Or the Fuji xt20, that has just one sd card slot. Or the sony alpha 6500 or A72 versions that have just one sd card slot.

It's funny how people think that nikon should shine again/recover doing beneficence to that market segment that complain about spending more for a camera with 2 sd slots (d500) especially when none of the competitors is selling the camera that they want in the same price range.

Exactly.

marc petzold: I don't want to crush the Party here, but the D7500 is also a drawback compared to the D7200 (into some ways), which there are for instance - only 1 (ONE!!!) SD Card Slot, the D7000, D7100 & D7200 had two - very nice for backup purposes or simply RAW/JPEG Mode (useful on weddings), then a polycarbonate Body, no more alu-mag alloy partly like all 3 others (D7000 up to D7200), the Eyecup from the D7500 is a joke compared to the older ones, too...and last, but least...what good is a better AF Module Sensor, when from these 51 AF Points, only the central one goes down to -3EV?! The D7200 have had all 51 AF Points going down to -3EV, and DPR stated this into the D7200 Review clearly.

So, for me, even the Sensor is from the D500, but that's neglible compared to the 24 MP D7200 Sensor, the AF System is both up & downgraded at the same time, the D7500 does now 4k (but Sony/Pana are way better when it comes to video, period)...the D7500 seems like a bit upgraded D5600, but nowhere D7x00 Class.

I'd disagree on the new Polycarbonate body. Having a lighter weight body is a big plus, and makes it more attractive when compared with its APSC rivals that are mirrirless.

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.
