Please bear with me and this post as I am truly lost on which camera to purchase.
I am looking for much needed advice on which Nikon camera to purchase. I own a D3200 that I had purchased roughly a year ago.
I have two lenses so far:
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 55-200 mm 1:4-5.6G DX
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 1:3.5-5.6G DX
These came along with the camera at time of purchase.
My background is a photography enthusiast. I am not looking to make it a business or a profession. I love taking photos of my children, wild life (we hike a lot), a bit of landscapes, and macro (we visit lots of zoos and botanical gardens).
I want to upgrade to a newer camera, but make it an upgrade that I can enjoy for the next 5 - 6 years.
I was thinking about D7500. Costco is running a good price on a D7500, case, 2 batteries, memory card, and 2 lenses:
AF-P 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens
AF-P 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G VR Lens
for $1000, which is a pretty good deal.
D7500, from what I found online, is considered an intermediate user camera. It seemed like a good purchase, until I started researching more and now I am not sure if D7500 would be a better buy than a D610 or maybe D750 (body only) that can be purchased for less than $1000 on eBay in great to mint shape. I would buy a general purpose FX lens for the D610 or D750 and use my current DX lenses for now.
Basically I do not want to buy a camera, learn about it, experiment by taking photos and then 6 months later wish that it had more features and I was able to do more with it. I know it won't be D850 (too expensive for me, otherwise I would definitely get D850) or have its features, but I do want to try to get the most versatile camera for my buck.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I thank you in advance!!!
