    Question Would you buy the D7200 again if making the decision now?

    My current plan has been to save for my next lens; the Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2. However, I'm beginning to wonder if picking up a reduced price 7200 first might be something to consider. I realize it's not the newest camera/technology but it's newer than my D7000. I still like the idea of dual card slots. My photography is general interest (people, places, scenes, family, events, etc.). My Tamron 24-70 2.8 is my main lens and I would still plan to add the 70-200 someday. So as the title says, would you buy the D7200 again if making the decision now?

    I think so. I still like mine and I'd not feel short changed. I use a grip and I like 2 cards. Both are important to me. That keeps me out of the 7500. I like the 500 but my 7200 works fine and I prefer upgrading glass.

    For my purposes, I photograph almost everything, I would go for the D7200 to this day. Unless you are heavily into sports and action photography, it is the best all around DX camera. I also consider the D7500 either a crippled D500 sports camera or a crippled D7200 for event, landscape, and portrait photography.

    nothing against the D7200, thought about replacing my D7000 with one plenty of times, but my 2 cents worth would be to buy the more expensive item first.

    Nope. I bought my 7200 as an upgrade to my D7000 and a month later the D500 was announced. While it's nice to have a body with similar controls to my D750 (and D600 while I had it), I would have preferred to have the faster frame rate of the D500. I use DX mainly for my long lenses, shooting sports and wildlife.

    Yes, as it serves my requirements better than any other frame out there at the moment

    IMHO, the gain in fun you're going to get from the Sigma lens is bigger than what the D7200 will give you over the D7000. Don't get me wrong, the 7200 is a great camera and fun to have, but the pics you'll get with the 70-200 G2 that you're not getting with your current 70-300 because it is too slow plus the general gain in IQ with that lens are much greater. I would go for the lens now and get the newer body later.

    While I still think the D7200 is probably THE pro-sumer DX body to have, I would recommend the lens over the body at this point. Depending on what lenses you already have, you'll get more long term gain with good glass, vs the incremental update from the D7000 to the D7200.

    Is there something that the D7200 does that you can't do with your D7000, or just looking for the higher performance specs?
