    Initial impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    I am sure every knows by now about the new DX iteration from Nikon. Looks very much like a castrated D500 not carrying over all the specs from the D7200. Sensor 20.9Mbit and D500 image processing.

    Only one SD card slot and no AIS ring for using older lens. Otherwise 8fps, 50 shot raw buffer, better low light performance and faster focusing. Tilt touch screen as per D500 but no joystick and cropped 24/30fps 4K video. Price point $1249 body only.

    Suitable for sport action photography. Me, sticking to my D7200 for now.

    What is your take?

    I'm sticking to my D500. I can't see taking a step backwards, or two steps. One card slot a huge mistake. Bring back the D7100.

    Every great once in a while Nikon manages to release a great camera, almost in spite of itself.

    This is not one of those times.

    I have no choice but to agree

    A near new second hand or refurbished D500 will set you back a mere $1400.

    At some point it becomes challenging coming up with new, truly innovative ways to shoot yourself in the foot.

    Clearly Nikon is wanting to explore ALL the possible options.

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    From what I have seen about the D7500, I would be hard pressed to upgrade my D7200. And if the rumor is right about not being able to use older lenses is true, the loss of use of my 80-200mm would be a deal breaker all by itself. Unfortunately, Nikon does appear to be in a death spiral. They are charging more and more for less and less.

    What a thoroughly disappointing upgrade. I use the word upgrade in its very loosest sense. I wouldn't swap my D7200 for one. Maybe thats a good thing?

    No thanks, I will stick with what I have D3300, D5500, D7200, D500, D810. No more room for what would be a waste of money.

    I am shocked that they would only have one card slot. That seems crazy. I will be keeping my D7200.
