    Re: Should I Upgrade to D7200 from the D7000 ?

I use my camera for equestrian shots (Horses Jumping) and general family shots. I also like birds and eagles. Its not really about the cost, I was hoping to notice some improvements. Its very tempting to want and buy new equipment. I do have some good glass and some OK glass as well. I don't know if I need to go full frame yet , just not sure
    I would definitely upgrade to the D7200 in that case.For your action shots like horse jumping and Eagle flying you are going to really appreciate the higher ISO capabilities (we need as much shutter speed as we can get for those shots) and the somewhat larger buffer.

    If he has two DX and is going to sell one, I think the D610 instead of the D7200 might be a better choice. For horse jumping or family shots the crop factor isn't needed and he can fill the frame easily with an FX. His low light performance will improve quite some compared to a DX. And the D610 doesn't cost that much more. Here it's about 300€ difference.

    For birding he'd still have the D7000 with the crop factor. If he has the glass already, FX might be a good choice.

    I think focus speed and accuracy will be a little better with the D7200 than the D610, though.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Do it my friend! I've just got a Nikon d7200 and I LOVE IT! The ISO is just amazing to behold and all the added benefits you get with the upgrade just make you smile ALOT! I'm loving it and on my way camping to do some long exposure shots tonight :-)

    I went from a 7000 to a 7200 and see a ton of difference. I had pretty much convinced myself that I was going with a used D700 and even found one to buy and noticed the d7200 was released. Sure it still has things I didn't like about the D7000. Size, build quality, small viewfinder, a few missing on camera controls etc.

    What it did deliver on was what I wanted to see in a d7xxx upgrade: Sony sensor, Expeed 4 processor, deeper buffer, much better AF system IMO, low light AF and better high ISO performance.

    My only complaint was that I had to shoot RAW+JPG for a while until I had a version of LR that supported the RAW files. Its a fun camera to shoot and like I said focus is really nice on this one. Misses are a rarity now compared to the D7000 where I had 15-25% on bursts of moving subjects.

    Definitely. There's a lot of difference between the D7000 and the D7200.
