D7500 16 80E Frt34l

Nikon has announced the new Nikon D7500, featuring the 20.9 megapixel APS-C (DX) CMOS sensor from the Nikon D500 (a camera that set the benchmark for APS-C performance). The D7500 offers 8fps continuous shooting at full-resolution, a 51-point AF system, 4K UHD video recording, and a tilting 3.2inch touch-screen.

The D7500  is priced at £1299 body only, or £1599 with the Nikon AF-S 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, and will be available from the end of June 2017. The D7500 sits above the D7200, which will remain on the market, and below the Nikon D500.

We were given early access to the D7500, and have published our Nikon D7500 Hands-On Preview.

D7500 18 140 Tilt 3

From Nikon: London, UK, 12th April 2017: Nikon announces the D7500, designed to expand the creative possibilities for photographers as they pursue their passion in photography. Powerful, nimble, and fully connected, the D7500 offers the same image quality as the D500 - Nikon’s flagship DX-format DSLR, and a performance that overcomes the most challenging conditions.

Packing powerful image technology in a travel-ready body, the D7500 is ideal for photographers who are always searching for the best possible images. As with the D500, the D7500’s 20.9 MP DX-format CMOS sensor offers an ISO range that extends to an incredible ISO 1,640,000 equivalent. Nikon’s EXPEED 5 processor is on board, offering faster, cleaner image processing. And the greatly increased pixel count of the 180K-pixel RGB sensor enables improved metering accuracy. Video shooters can record 4K/UHD movies, and Nikon’s in-camera Electronic Vibration Reduction counters the effects of unwanted camera movement. Ergonomic improvements include the new tilting monitor that offers touchscreen operation, and a deep grip for a stable, exceptionally comfortable hold. And this is the first Nikon DSLR to boast a built-in flash that supports radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting.

D7500 Front

Tim Carter, Senior Product Manager, Nikon UK, Says: “The D7500 delivers the same superb image quality as the D500 but in a smaller, more lightweight body with easier handling. For amateur photographers who are looking to up their game and deliver best-in-class imagery, but perhaps don’t need so many of the professional features that the D500 offers, the D7500 is the perfect D-SLR. The camera comes equipped with SnapBridge which lets shooters share their incredible images wherever they are, and the chance to shoot at up to 8 fps with full AF/AE tracking allows the speed and precision to never miss a shot.”

Won't be upgrading from my D7200 any time soon, especially as you lose 4 megapixels. Mine should have had a flip-out screen instead of just being the same as the D7100, but thats feature creep for you!
