    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    The first DX body in 12 years that interests me at all. The last one for me was D2X in 2005 and I still use it. But the new D7500 looks promising as a travel body or stay-in-the-car-trunk camera. Currently in my trunk is a D300 but I didn't buy that new, I got it from a friend in exchange for a polarizer filter a few years back.

    Perhaps I'm the only one not bothered by the single card slot? I have pockets for extra cards and haven't used the backup feature ever. Sometimes I put 2 cards in a camera but only use the overflow mode, so I don't care if there's one or five card slots.

    They should have called this one D5600 as it is in reality a dinky camera on steroids overpriced and aimed at the prosumer class, don't get me wrong it can still produce processional photos but lack a whole lot to be classed as a semi-professional camera.

    The D7200 will eventually be dropped and the only camera left in the intermediate class will be the D500 leaving us with the D7500, D500 and D5 DSLRs and possibly one surprise that could well be a mirror-less.

    The only thing left to hope for is what will Nikon announce around June in celebration of their 100th year....

    I still see no reason to upgrade from my D7100.

    The D7500 doesn't do anything for me, but I didn't expect it would either.

    To me, the single card slot is to avoid the D7500 conflicting with the D500 for pro/semi-pro use. It's clear, the D500 is the pro DX body. The D7500 is a consumer body. Great stats, very close to the D500 (except for the neutered AF system), but should not be confused with the D500.

Unfortunately, Nikon does appear to be in a death spiral. They are charging more and more for less and less.
    What spec is your 80-200mm? The d7500 appears to have the mechanical AF coupling.

    A rumor I saw said, "no AIS ring for using older lens." was not sure what this meant, but have since seen the specs that the D7500 will work with D lenses, so I should be OK. However, I still don't see anything to make me salivate for one, so I will stay with my D7200.

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    Hello all, I haven't visited here in a while... Nikon's D7500 announcement piqued my interest. This seems to be a good camera for me. As a sports shooter, I'm in dire need of a replacement for my faithful old D300, but the D500 is completely beyond of my price range. Not an ideal sports camera, my D7100 has been carrying a heavy workload (the D7200 never offered enough of an upgrade to justify a purchase). The D7500 can give me much of the D500's most important feature set, while offering a frame rate I'm familiar with from the D300. A pairing of a D7500 with my D7100 should cover my humble needs, and for less than what a D500 would cost me. That sounds good to me.
