    Re: Would you buy the D7200 again if making the decision now?

    You might want to take a look at this link:

    Nikon D7000 vs Nikon D7200 Detailed Comparison

    I fully believe this is enough upgrade to go from a D7000 to a D7200. If it was an original purchase, the D7200 would be the no brainer.

    I don't think anybody would argue this point. It seems to me that the question is whether the 1 percent better performance of the D7200 for street and daily photography, 2 percent for portrait, 3 percent for sports, and 8 percent for travel (where the higher resolution really shines), all per the comparison in the link, matter enough for the OP's photographic style and make replacing the D7000 a better option than buying the 70-200 2.8 G2.

    I went on a photo trip with my son one day. Appx 1 1/2 hours away. I had forgot to put the card back in the slot. Luckily I always leave a spare in the other slot. I love having the two slots as forgetting my card is something I never worry about. LOL

    My advice would be glass first, body later. New bodies are fun, but a good lens usually makes more impact on your image quality, IMO.

    If I had known back in February (when I bought my D7200) that I would be having shoulder surgery in June, I probably would have opted for a lighter body. Before the surgery, I was willing to heft the extra weight in return for the "ruggedness" of the D7200 body. Now it limits my time shooting.

    Also, although I like many of the features, I have spent countless hours reading the owner's manual and Darrell Young's book and still have a long way to go before I feel comfortable jumping from setting to setting. Maybe something with a few less bells and whistles would allow me to focus on the subject and not on "do I have everything set correctly?"

    Still, I love the camera and hope that when my shoulder is back to "normal", I can spend more time with the camera and get to the point where using it is more natural.

    Tough choice at the moment, but "Yes", I'd probably still get it.

    I've shot with empty slots on one occasion as well. And didn't have a spare in my bag. Very embarrassing.

    The D7200 is the best all round DX camera and the only reason to change would either be a D500 for its focused purpose 10fps (sports action and/or wild life) or the D850 if you are moving over to full frame. The D7200 with Tamron's new G2 holy trinity lenses will get you into the best quality for the buck especially since in many cases they out perform the equivalent Nikon glass. Recommended of course is at least one quality prime....

    D7200 is great, iq, high iso, dual card slots, etc.etc. Love mine, wish the grip was deeper. Will probably buy another at some point if the price were right for me. Don't have a local camera store to compare the tactile feel of this and say a D500 or D800 series and if the D500 or D800 series would "feel" better in my hands I would have paid more given the opportunity to compare. IQ and other important (again "to me") features, hard to beat the D7200.

    You'll like the D500 in that case. I have the D7100 (same body as D7200) to compare, and the D500 grip is quite a bit deeper and definitely feels better.

    Thanks lokatz! I assumed it would be a deeper grip, as the D300 grip for me is just about right and is deeper. Before the D500 was introduced I bought the D7200 I'll be wanting the D500 at some point probably. Have a good one! Larry.
