    Re: Upgrading from D7000?

    Some more info. For a budget, I've currently thinking of around $1500 as a maximum. My go to lens for the vast majority of my photography is my Tamron 24-70.

    If that is your budget and your lens, and if it is the G2 version, I have to recommended the Z5. It is full frame, it has in body image stabilization, and EVF With WYSIWYG. That with the FTZ adapter will allow you to use f mount glass. Tamron needs to be G2. I am using my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 lens on my Z6.

    You should at least give it a look. Body only is $996.99 at B&H. There are kits as well.

    The 24-70 is not the newer G2 version.

    I don't have a particular recommendation - just want to be sure you are informed as to some of the differences with the D7500 vs. the D500 or D7200. As you already know, the D7500 only has one card slot. For action shots, it won't be as fast as the D500's speed although it shares the same sensor as the D500. And Nikon didn't make a grip to go with it. There is at least one aftermarket grip out there made to be compatible, but I'm pretty sure the body lacks the terminal on the bottom that usually communicates with a grip. The D7200 offers a nice package - one of the things Nikon wanted to do was to further the gap between the consumer bodies and the pro bodies (hence the removal of some good features). The D7200 has a much better sensor than your D7000 but not quite as good as the sensor in the D7500/D500. But the sensor in the D7200 is no slouch either. There is definitely noticeable improvement over your D7000 sensor.

    There have been advances made since your D7000 so you should be able to find a body that will offer room to grow. Good luck with your search - narrowing down the field can sometimes feel daunting. There may be pros and cons for each body you consider. Just weigh the trade offs and hopefully be able to decide which features are the most important for your style of shooting.

    Thanks for all the input. I'm not in a super-big rush so I've got time consider my options. Top priority is getting our daughter moved into her first apartment so we will be spending some funds helping her get set up.
