    Re: d7500 + sigma 17-50mm hsm

    As the D7200 is now discontinued the 7xxx choice is a bit limited new, i looked at the D7500 before buying my Olympus and as the price has dropped it doesnt look so bad.

    I've seen a refurb D7200 for $549 and the D7500 for $599.
    From some of the rumours, it looks like Nikon will soon be "all in" on mirrorless, so what is the future of the dslr?
    But in the mean time, I have a lot of Nikon F lenses, and there are deals to be had on bodies.

    The focus points are actually the same on the D7100 and D7500
    (51 with 15 cross type).
    But the difference is in the metering. The D7500 has the same metering system as the d500 and some other pro bodies.
    I don't view a D7200 as a large enough leap over my D7100, but the idea of this metering system being better at tracking birds in flight, and
    they way higher frame rate *is* something a lot different than what I already have, so that's where the intreigue is for me.
    Guess the D7200 and D7500 would both work better with my sigma 17-50.
    The D500 price is almost in range these days too with my camera slush fund.
    But then it's almost the larger question of do I start looking at mirrorless too?

    The D7500 has the same autofocus system as the D500, just with fewer focus points. It is significantly more sophisticated than the D7200s AF system. The D7500 also has group autofocus mode, which is really nice for birds in flight.

    well said. I know this system is a step above the D750,
    It is about tradeoffs.
    I may yet wait to see what's coming or for whatever black friday brings this year. I know the d7500 was stripped and I do like the grips, so a really good deal needs to come,
    I got my D7100 for $489 as a refurb. I still think it's an amazing camera.

    I'd buy a D7200 vs a D7500 personally unless there is a feature in the D7500 you need (+2 fps, 4K Video, touch screen, etc). IMO they neutered the D7500 to push more people to the D500. Things like dual card slots, slightly higher MP, better display resolution, etc.
