What’s good: Stun­ning im­age qual­ity, even at high ISO set­tings; so­phis­ti­cated yet sim­ple han­dling. What’s bad: Lacks the ul­tra-high res­o­lu­tion of the D810, or the super-fast drive rate of the D500. Our ver­dict: It’s the best over­all choice un­less you have very spe­cific shoot­ing re­quire­ments. A bit like a high-per­for­mance es­tate car with four-wheel drive, the D750 is a multi-task­ing mar­vel. It boasts great han­dling thanks to its in­tu­itive con­trol lay­out; im­mac­u­late im­age qual­ity even at very high ISO set­tings; and a good turn of pace in con­tin­u­ous drive mode. It’s also great value for such an over-achiev­ing full-frame cam­era, and is ca­pa­ble of shoot­ing ev­ery­thing from por­trai­ture to ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy.

For the ul­ti­mate per­for­mance in terms of super-fast con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing and aut­o­fo­cus track­ing for your sports and wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy, the D5 is the most ‘pro­fes­sional’ choice. How­ever, the D500 is much less ex­pen­sive and in­cludes most of the same high-end fea­tures, if you’re will­ing to stick with the DX for­mat. Or if cap­tur­ing fine detail and re­tain­ing it even in very large-for­mat print­ing is top of your wish list, the D810 is your ul­ti­mate upgrade. Just don’t ex­pect squeaky-clean im­age qual­ity at high ISO set­tings.
