What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • It still feels and handles just like a NIkon. Not small, but just right. Beautifully made and works like a dream.
  • The camera is sturdy, well balanced and comfortable in hand. Without the lens it is very light considering what it is.
  • I love the size, the battery life, the solid feel of the metal body, and of course, the quality of the images.
  • The weight difference between the D5300 and the D7200 is noticeable (the D7200 is heavier), and it's not uncomfortable to hold.
  • The only thing i did not like is the weight. I got this as a step up from my D300 but im missing how heavy it is.
Nikon D7500 Digital SLR Camera
  • It is quite heavy but you get use to the weight quickly and it’s half the weight of a full frame.
  • Love it, best DSLR I have ever owned and I have had a few like D500, D750, 80D, so light and quick.
  • For everyday walking about the D7500 is excellent with its small & lighter body and the jpegs are really very good.
  • The camera itself tis light weight, takes beautiful pictures, focusses very well and the low light functionality is superb!
  • For a start the camera is heavy compared to cheaper SLR's so if weight is a priority for you, I wouldn't consider it.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • ISO range is very wide and makes flash photography mostly unnecessary. I could go on for ages and am still learning.
  • It handles higher ISO very well. I'm very big on night photography. I usually will set the camera on 3200 - 6400 ISO and this has done an amazing job at keeping noise levels down and preserving detail.
  • Low light and high ISO settings performance are much better and the focusing system is extremely good.
  • The D7200's snappier autofocus especially in low light blew me away I was honestly not expecting it to be so good and it's high ISO capability is better than any APS-C DSLR.
  • It soon became apparent that it had a few shortcomings, ie the buffer size, focus hunting in low light and a less than impressive dynamic range.
Nikon D7500 Digital SLR Camera
  • Only had it a month and already taken nearly 2000 pictures just on family days out, I love it and so would you.
  • Autofocus it’s great, and the other features as well. Shooting in low light not a problem at all.
  • Excellent camera. Great in low-light conditions. Fast autofocus, great images.
  • Photo quality I think is absolutely fantastic with nice detail and great colour, am really impressed indeed.
  • I was very doubtful about upgrading to this from my D7200 (high cost, doubtful benefit) but actually the image quality, despite the slightly lower resolution, is significantly higher.

What customers say about "Display"
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The screen is nice and bright and the viewfinder gives you 100% coverage, what you see is what you get.
  • LCD screen is a very obvious improvement: not much bigger but a lot brighter and clearer.
  • A flip-out LCD screen would be a nice feature to have but, this is the right camera for me. Top LCD screen simplified and uncluttered.
  • The one button selects turn on the display and are not all available on the LCD. This is annoying at night.
  • The only thing I do not like is that live view screen isn't fixed, no tilt!
Nikon D7500 Digital SLR Camera
  • There are a whole host of settings to play around with and they are pretty easy to navigate through especially with the touch screen.
  • The touch screen, as well as its flexibility, gives a lot of tweaks to the settings.
  • The pivot mechanism gives a decent amount of articulation and you can adjust the screen brightness to view clearly, even on a bright day.
  • The tilting screen is great, not I no longer have to be one with the grass, and only my knees get soaked.
  • This is an awesome camera! At low light it is amazing and the tilting screen is a great addition!

What customers say about "Features"
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The camera is a little daunting. It has buttons and knobs and two screens. You can reprogram most of the buttons and knobs.
  • The camera is very robust, the quality of the image impressive. There are an impressive number of options for everything, autofocus in particular.
  • The D7200 offers accurate focus, white balance and flesh tone color balance, exceeding my expectations.
  • Controls are fairly familiar after years with the D80, the virtual horizon feature is not the gimmick I suspected but really useful!
  • There's also as the normal manual, shutter and aperture priority, a pretty good programmed auto, and a myriad of customisable functions, settings and buttons.
Nikon D7500 Digital SLR Camera
  • The menu is clean and segregated into manageable areas, so it doesn’t take long to find what you are looking for.
  • The camera is sturdy, well balanced and comfortable in hand with a soft rubberised grip.
  • Most functions and buttons are all within reach of your fingers when holding the camera in a ready to shoot position.
  • The D7500 does a really good job when focusing still and moving subjects.
  • You can adjust the settings can really help you expose the photo properly, which if done well will produce photos with lovely colour rendition.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Nikon D7200 DSLR Camera + 18-105 mm VR Lens
  • The camera is fast. The ability to connect via wifi to my iPhone and grab pictures is great. You will love this camera and use it for years.
  • The NFC works great no issues and the WiFi is build in no issues with that.
  • Thanks to NFC and Wi-Fi, I can easily take photos and transfer photos directly to my phone. Most notably, it has TWO SD card slots whereas the D7500 does not.
  • The only thing I'm not over struck on is the Wifi and NFC - these seem to be aimed at connecting to a mobile device of some description.
  • NFC works with WiFi to turn on and off the connection. You are better off buying a remote for the camera than trying to use a smart phone.
Nikon D7500 Digital SLR Camera
  • Yes only one SD slot but cards nowadays are so reliable and it always sends a 2MB picture to my mobile every time I use the camera so if the worst ever happened I would at least have a copy.
  • You can pass images to your phone for sharing and use the phones GPS to geo-tag images on the phone.
  • The USB connection with the computer works well, there are no disconnects, i am very pleased.
  • At first I had USB cable disconnects, but then these problems disappeared and now everything works fine.
  • The only small drawback is the lack of a second SD card slot, but it's nitpicking.
