And this problem doesn't have anything to do with the shutter recall either.

    I believe @Blacktop also has a shutter ERR problem although his is different from mine. And he sent his in and had the shutter replaced, too, although I don't think it stopped his ERR from happening.
    After the second shutter replacement, I no longer get the ERR message. However I no longer shoot burst very much since I have the D500. I will still fire off a few bursts here and there when doing bracketing for some landscape but not very often.

    To the OP. Even though I had shutter problems, I would still buy the D750 again, unless they come out with a replacement, then I would take a look at that.

    Re: If you had to do it over again, would you buy the D750 again?

    Bought my 750 2.5 years ago and I'm very pleased with it. Got it because I was not happy with the low light focusing of my D600. Problem solved. Later that year (2015), upgraded my D7000 to a D7200 for use with the Nikon 200-500 lens. Both bodies are nice, but the 750 seems to be better in every way, except reach on long lenses and closeness for macro. And the flippy screen is really helpful on the 750. While practicing for last month's eclipse, I found that I could achieve better focus in live view using the tilty screen on the 750 vs trying to view the screen on the D7200.

    I forgot the 750 had the floppy screen. That is definitely a plus!

    Is there a noticeable (however that is defined) difference between the picture quality of the 750 vs your 7200?

    I don't think so. But all my glass is FX, so I don't get a 1.5 crop factor when using them on the 750. Important when using wide angle lenses like 14-24.

    Re: If you had to do it over again, would you buy the D750 again?

    First, it's the best camera I've ever owned so yes, I would definitely buy it again. Second, although the D850 is worth salivating over, it's not worth spending over twice as much as I spent on my D750, at least not for my (or frankly most people's) "needs". (Like really, what of any real importance is the D750 not capable of?) Third, although I'm quite ticked that I need to send mine in for the shutter recall (no problems, just want to get a new shutter to be safe) because I can't stand to part with it for a few weeks, I'm essentially getting my shutter count reset from like 8,000 to zero without having to pay a dime - that's like getting a new car transmission for free!

    The D750 had the AF module flare issue shortly after its release as well as the shutter recall issue.

    In the OP's scenario, a low light landscape shot from a tripod, with both cameras shooting 100 ISO, I doubt anyone could conclusively tell the difference. If you eliminate the tripod and are forced to shoot higher ISO's then the D750 should produše a cleaner image.

    I moved from a D7100 to the D750. The 750 is head and shoulders above it in terms of IQ and AF performance. So, would I do it again? In a heartbeat! But, I wouldn't wait so long......

    Re: If you had to do it over again, would you buy the D750 again?

    i seem to recall seeing/hearing about 3 different issues with the D750 where you had to go to Nikons site to check and see if your serial # was among the affected cameras (am i wrong about this?). i personally haven't experienced any of those 3 issues although i did send it in the first time even without having seen the problem. so since my experience has been nothing but positive, yes, i'd buy it again. it was at a cost though since i had a D5100 previously and now i had to buy all new full-frame lenses for the 750.
