VER­DICT

Smart Photography - - D-SLR -

Like the world out there, we were also ex­cit­edly wait­ing for this cam­era with fea­tures adopted from the D500. And af­ter han­dling it for some time, we are left won­der­ing whether the D7500 is re­ally an up­grade or a ‘re-ar­ranged’ D7200. The cam­era surely gets a 2-fps boost in con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing, 4K video, tilt­ing LCD and, the­o­ret­i­cally, an ex­panded ISO range to brag about. But all these come at the ex­pense of 3 mil­lion pix­els, one mem­ory res­o­lu­tion, by it­self, must have im­proved the con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing rate, and the ex­panded ISO range does not ap­pear too im­pres­sive, con­sid­er­ing that the cam­era uses the lat­est im­age pro­ces­sor. And while oth­ers have man­aged to re­duce the size of their D-SLRs con­sid­er­ably, the APS-C D7500 is ap­prox­i­mately the same size and weight that of the full frame Canon 6D. The D7500 has done away with me­chan­i­cal aper­ture tabs and hence older AI and AI-S lenses will not me­ter with the cam­era. If Nikon in­tends to re­place the 7200, we are not thor­oughly im­pressed. But if it is go­ing to be placed be­tween the D7200 and the down to an en­thu­si­ast cam­era still makes it a Best Buy.
