If you are planning to purchase a semi-professional Nikon DSLR camera, you might want to sit back and wait for the all new Nikon D7500.
The ISO range of the soon-to-be-released D7500 is 100-51,600, and it also allows you to set low ISO value of 50. This could be an ideal action and sports camera as it features 8 FPS continuous shooting, with buffer speed of up to 100 JPEG format files or up to 50 RAW format files. This camera also allows you to shoot videos in 4K UHD at 24, 25 and 30 FPS.
Talking about the autofocus system, the Nikon D7500 features 51 available focus points and 15 cross-type sensors which is the same as found in D7200.
This camera comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and tilting LCD, which allows you to touch and focus while the Live View mode.
As of the the exact launch date has not been officially announced, but is expected to launch during late June or early July in USA. The Nikon D7500 body will come with a price tag of $1,250 and Nikon D7500 kit (includes 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX Nikkon lens) at $1,750.
I think that this is a good upgrade to the existing D7200 because the improvements and additions that you get by spending $250 more is worth the cost. There is an increase of one stop in ISO sensitivity, from ISO 25600 in D7200 to ISO 51200 in D7500. There is also an increase from 6 FPS to 8 FPS and addition of Bluetooth technology.
The only downfall in this camera is the reduction of card slot from 2 slots in D7200 to only 1 on D7500. But overall the Nikon D7500 looks like an impressive upgrade.
