    Help!!! D7200 or D610?

    Help!!! D7200 or D610?
    I have been tearing my hair out over this!
    Four years ago I started with a D3100, two years later came a D5200, now another two years on, I would like to upgrade to either the 7200 or 610. After bombarding myself with written reviews and videos I really can't decide and It's driving me nuts!
    I shoot literally everthing, but mostly street portraits (d610?) and football (d7200?). I already have lenses compatible with both DX and FX formats.
    Some of the reasons for upgrading are that I find the the viewfinder on the 5200 too small, so quite often I don't see objects that are detrimental to the shot. With our lovely British winters I need some weather protection. On dull days I have to push the ISO higher than I like to get a decent shutter speed for football, resulting in grainy prints!
    I've read the whole DX vs FX thing, all the supposed pros and cons, and as for the comment "if you need to ask why you need FX you don't need it." What the hell does that mean?
    I'm hoping someone with real world experience of both cameras could put me out of my misery!
    I have attached two of my typical photos.
    Thanks
    Rob

    Sorry but if action is your game you need to consider the D500

    Do you use a second card in your camera if not what is the D7500 like,i haven't looked into it.

    Back to your question the D750 would be be a consideration with me,sorry i cant bring myself to answer between the D7200 and D610 because of your subject interests.

    Hopefully some one will give you some real help soon.

    Sorry Mike, I should have added that the 610 is as high as my budget goes.

    Thought that Rob but without proof i let my mind have free run,not had a 610 is the AF still good when the light starts to fall and is it quick for sport.

    I had a D600 (very similar to D610) for a few years and have a D7200, in addition to a 750. Since you have both DX and FX glass, and shoot both sports and regular stuff, I'd suggest the 7200. I think the 7200 offers more than the 610, if you don't mind staying with a cropped sensor. It's newer, has a better sensor, faster focusing, goes up to 1/8000 sec, has Wi-Fi and is about the same price.

    The 610 uses an older af system from the d7000, but I think it's fairly proficient.

    Thanks, that's kind of the route I initially went down, but then I was told to progress I should go FX, but no one can really tell me why!

    If you want to stay with a DX camera I, and many reviewers and users, believe the D7200 is the best all around DX camera made. If I wanted an FX camera, I would really recommend saving my pennies for a D850.

    I have a D7200 that I love for Sports and such, and I bought a used D700 with a low shutter count at a good price. I use the D7200 when I need the reach for birds and my niece's softball games and things like that. I use the D700 for most other things like landscape and low light shots at my church. The 700 is older, but I like the camera a lot.

    If I could only have one and I had the budget constraint I would go with the D7200. I have enjoyed mine in low light and sports.

    Depending on what you shoot there really isn't a solid reason why - I hate the whole FX/DX argument in general. In the end a camera is a tool to do a job - you just need to pick the right tool that suits your work in your defined budget. Sometimes that means compromise....

    And I agree with above that if action is your thing, you can't go wrong with the D500, but if that's not in the budget, I would look at the D7500 (if a single card isn't an issue for you) or the D7200 as a good compromise.
