Which model comes after Nikon D7200

Nikon D7500: Successor to the D7200 with professional technology

The Nikon D7500, which has now been introduced, is certainly not the cheapest SLR camera on the market at a price of around 1500 euros (RRP). But Nikon doesn't just want to offer a successor to the now three-year-old D7200. The good piece is equipped with the EXPEED 5 image processing processor, which is already in the DX top model D500. This should lead to the same image quality, but at the same time the housing of the D7500 is handy and - as the manufacturer calls it - suitable for travel.

The D7500's CMOS image sensor has 20.9 megapixels (D7200: 24 megapixels) and ISO values ​​between ISO 100 and 51,200. The range can be expanded to 50-1,640,000. The EXPEED 5 also ensures that videos can be recorded in 4K resolution at 24p, 25p or 30p. 8 pictures per second can be shot with autofocus.

In a direct comparison to the D7200, the display can now be tilted and has a 3.2-inch touchscreen. There are still 51 measuring fields, 15 of which are cross sensors. The number of pixels in the RGB sensor increases to 180,000, which improves exposure metering and subject recognition. WLAN and Bluetooth are a matter of course, as is the connection to Nikon's SnapBridge app.

Competition in your own warehouse?

The D7500 undoubtedly sounds exciting, although the price is quite high. The body alone costs 1500 euros, kits with lenses are planned. With the DX Nikkor 18-105mm you pay 1800 euros (RRP), with the DX Nikkor 18-140mm you pay 1850 euros. If you want the package with DX Nikkor 16-80mm, you can invest 2500 euros. Deliveries will begin at the end of June 2017. Incidentally, the D7200 will still be available, a price reduction is to be expected. It is already available with an 18-105mm lens from Euronics.de for 1,179 euros. In terms of price, the D500 is not that far removed from the D7500, but offers 153 focus areas and up to 10 images per second, for example. I can well imagine that the D7500 and D500 could compete with each other - is that what Nikon intends to do?
