D7200 miles better than the D7500
25 April 2018
This is the king of APS cameras. Yes there's the D7500, but let me say why this is a much better buy. Firstly, it accepts nearly all Nikon lenses from about 1959 (as it has a aperture feeler ring - something that's been removed in the D7500). Next, this has 2 card slots, this simply means if you damage one card or it get's corrupt whilst you are transferring, there's the real time back up still in the camera.. fantastic. Secondly, if you find you need to write to another card in mid shooting for whatever reason you have that card there. So many options RAW on one, JPEGs on the other, both written to at same time, Movies on one pictures on the other. Two card slots are indispensable (don't let anyone tell you otherwise) of course you don't need to use both. Another point, this D7200 allows the attachment of a grip which serves more purposes than you think. For example, great for vertical shooting, useful to have 2 batteries in at the same time (for over 2,300 exposures) and when Nikon finally retires the EN-EL15 battery and it costs a fortune to buy 3rd party ones, hey presto you can use this amazing camera by using either disposable AAs or rechargeable AAs (always available anywhere on the planet). The grip also has a D-Type Multiselector, a front and back command dial, a programmable AEL button and of course a shutter release button. And no you don't have ANY of these features on third party grips for the D7500. This also has over 24MP, useful when you got a shot and you need to crop, what you have left if you crop even half of the picture is 12MP - enough for any print (and more than the D3 or D700 - what all pro used in the 2000's).
Finally on DXOMark this camera is king of APS-C cameras.
