    Re: Upgrade from D3200 to ??

    One thing you would get with the D7200 is the ability to fine tune the focus if needed with any lenses, the D3XXX and D5XXX dont have this facility.

    I love my D7200. It works well. It is a good camera and most things that you would want to adjust you can do with buttons and dials rather than getting into the menu. That is the biggest change that I realized when I upgraded from the D3200 and I really liked being able to make adjustments without the menu.

    If you can afford it... the jump to a D500 or D850 would be a great long term choice. There is a little steeper learning curve because the buttons are a bit different, but once you get the hang of them I think like either one of the cameras. I would suggest, if it is possible, rent some of these or at least try to check them out at a camera store.

    The last point... Good glass is important. If you buy the 850 and do not have quality glass with it you will be disappointed. Just my 2cents.

    If cost is not the issue, a Z6 would be the best camera for your subject since it(and the Z7) have by far the best connectivity of current cameras, regardless of brand. They also have better focusing since they do not need lens/camera fine tuning, so either from the excellent viewfinder or the hi-res rear screen and best of all for macro...excellent focus peaking, the best in the industry. Macro is done with manual focus and focus peaking shows you precisely where the focal plane is as you adjust. It can use either F mount lenses or the excellent S lenses that are sharper wide open than F lenses and cheaper, smaller and lighter.

    I have both pro grade D850 and D800 plus a Z6 and for this use, the Z6 is the better choice. It is also small and only 650grams in weight and built better than any camera under the $6000 D5. I might be better weather sealed than that camera, however. The lenses are also better sealed so if you do any outdoor shooting in changeable weather than it would be of interest to yours.

    I went back and read some more information on the Z series. I didn't know about this. Thanks

    I don't have any experience with it, but based on what I have seen, I would consider it (Z7) for my next camera purchase if I decide to go mirrorless and stayed with Nikon. The price is a consideration for me, though. I would have to save up or sell some stuff.
    The only feature I would miss that the D500 has are the backlit buttons. The Z7 has tilt screen, the 3 custom banks U1, Uf2, U3, 12 fps and is supposed to be good in low light plus it is a lighter camera than the D8** series. I guess you have to have a new set of lenses, but if you don't already have a lot of money invested in F-mount lenses, then no problem. I guess the lens mount adapter works. Just thought of that.

    Maybe @Danno can weigh in. He just bought a Z.

    All upgrades eventually lead to the D750 or D500. A great long step up is the D7200.

    Hi Texas, Ive been reading up on the D750 and it is being known as "dated" I like what I read about it, it's definitely more than I really need but will also probably be the last camera I "need" and the 850 is suppose to be a step up but than I read that between the two 750-850 the 750 is the way to go.

    Boy this is really mind-jerking

    It is. I narrowed the field down to the D7200 and D500 because I didn't want to invest in the glass. I didn't have my mind made up until I went to the store and tried both out. I did consider the D750 for the full frame option at the time, but....glass. I know several people on the forum have said they would go for the D850 if they could.

    You could rent a camera for the weekend and see if you like it. Might be worth it before spending thousands.

    @Nikonewbie, I have been looking at updating my FX D700 for a while, and I was looking at the 850 hard. It seemed to really fit my needs that the Z7 came along and a buddy bought one. I liked it but I was still leaning toward the 850. Than the Z6 came out and it really looked good it has a resolution that makes more sense to me. I just do not print big enough photos to need the resolution or crop that much.
    I also read about the low light performance. I take a lot of photos @my church and low light is an issue. Also the IBIS. I bought the Z 6 and I am very happy. Low light and IBIS have been better than I expected and I really like the 24-70 f4 S lens that I bought with the body.
    I am very happy with the Z6. My only struggle is waiting on the weather so I can get out and take pictures of something beside my dog.
