#56076 The New Nikon D7500: Superior Performance That Drives The Desire To Create

Posted by Fred588 on 06 July 2018 - 09:17 AM

Rather more than a year ago, before the d7500 was officially announced, I had money set aside for a purchase. I used that money for something else, however, as I already have a d7200 and the d7500 seemed a step backward. I know it can do 4k video but I already have three dedicated video cameras for that. What would have made the sale was an INCREASE in pixel resolution, not a decrease. A year and almost a half later my view has not changed. If my d7200 were to start to fail or become damaged I would get another d7200.

#51908 Nikon D7500 Announced

Nikon's reasoning, I believe, is that you're a good candidate for a D500 and they don't want to muck things up by dangling another D7xxx body in front of you that works almost as well or better.



I expect you are right, and I know they were wrong.

#51865 Nikon D7500 Announced

I bought the d7000 and then the d7200 almost the day they became available. When I knew the one that turned out to be the d7500 was coming I built up the funds to acquire one on about the same schedule. However, when I found out the pixel resolution was REDUCED I declared the d7500 dead on arrival. I am rather baffled at Nikon's reasoning here.
