    Re: D7500 from D5300

    I have one Nikon charger, and I don't remember which camera body it came with, that has no cord. Instead the plug connects to the charger and I plug the charger into the wall socket. Maybe that is how your's is meant to be used? It certainly is not as convenient to use as with a cord.

    Enjoy your D7500.
    Man, do I feel dumb. The "European adapter" I briefly glanced at is not European at all! Under closer inspection, all is there, Adorama provided all I need (except the hot-shoe cover- but I stole the one off the D40x thats been banished to the drawer). My bad! Thanks for pointing it out there should be no cord @hark

    I'd gladly trade that nasty shoulder strap yesterday for a hot-shoe cover today, Nikon... DO YOU HEAR ME, NIKON??!! DOOOO YOUUU??!!
    I know I'm in the minority, but I use the original factory strap.

    I think Nikon can afford the extra 10 cents a hot shoe cover would cost them to include it with all their DSLRs. Classic penny wise and pound foolish, IMO. And, no cord for the charger is just silly.

    LOL. Not dumb at all. Nikon just saved 50 cents on your sale by not including a cord. THAT'S dumb.

    Re: D7500 from D5300

    Congrats on the 7500. I was down on it originally too. I have a 7200 and the missing card slot and grip as well as the absence of a drive motor were my biggest complaints. Than I bought a D700 and the single card slot worry left. Than I thought a bit more about how often I actually used the grip... Now I do like the drive for D lenses but I made a big jump to a Z6 and suddenly the drive motor is not as big a deal. So the D7500 is suppose to have a better sensor and a better focus system than the D7200. It also has snap bridge which is much better than the system on the D7200. So congrats.

    When you decide to upgrade the D800 you should look at the Z6 or 7. But be warned... the Electronic View Finder will ruin you. My DSLRs see very little time in hand since the Z6 came home.

    From what I remember, Nikon got those cords from one specific company. Then the company either stopped making them or went out of business. So instead of finding a new manufacturer, Nikon simply stopped including them. Makes me wonder just how good of a deal Nikon got from their cord manufacturer.

    Believe me- the Z line has been on my radar quite a while. I wanted to get firmly deep into the DSLR arena before dipping my toes into mirrorless.
    The info online about the D7500 was a bit confusing about the drive motor. It has one! What they did away with on the D7500 is the aperture dial meant for use with REALLY old lenses. My 35-70 2.8D, 80-200 2.8D and Tokina 100 2.8 all have drive motors and have all worked flawlessly on the D7500. Attached is a picture using the Tokina 100 2.8 that I took yesterday.

    I did not know that. The way I read it the 7500 did not have the motor. Well that is great... Not that I am going to move back to DSLR, but it is good to know. Thanks.
