The D7200 is £450/$150 cheaper and has 24 megapix­els. Why don’t I just buy that?

Yes, the D7200’s strengths are its range of fea­tures, out­right im­age qual­ity, solid con­struc­tion and great han­dling. But it’s not a sports or low-light spe­cial­ist. Its con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing speed isn’t bad at 6fps, but its 26-shot Raw buf­fer ca­pac­ity falls way short of the D7500’s 50 shots, and its AF sys­tem lacks Group Area AF mode. The D7200’s older sen­sor de­liv­ers plenty of res­o­lu­tion, but more noise with it, so by the time you reach medium to high-ISO set­tings, the dif­fer­ence in im­age qual­ity be­tween these two cam­eras will be­come ap­par­ent. It doesn’t have the D7500’s tilt­ing screen or touch-screen con­trol, ei­ther. And for video, the 4K D7500 is a clear win­ner.

The bot­tom line: The D7200 is a ter­rific all-round cam­era, but just re­mem­ber it’s not built for speed or low light.
