Nikon’s delivered a great all-rounder
Although this may not be a complete overhaul, what Nikon has done has tweaked an already great camera to produce something which is even better than its predecessor. It makes for a great all-rounder, which produces images which are very sharp and detailed with a pleasing degree of saturation and vibrance.
While it would have been nice to see an articulating, or perhaps even touch-sensitive screen on the back, as we have on the D5500, on the plus side it’s great to have a 100 per cent viewfinder. Built-in Wi-Fi making an appearance is also useful, if a little restricted by the limited app which accompanies it.
The new Expeed 4 processor fixes the issue of the burst depth, making it more useful than before if you’re shooting fast-moving subjects. The handling of the camera also remains great, with a high-quality feel you might otherwise expect from something which sits at the top of Nikon’s range, rather than in the middle.
