    Tempting

      Indeed

    • T.I.M

      I know, but I will wait for my D30x30
      Can’t have it all in this world !

      • Captain Insane-O

        I hate to break it to you, but Nikon started putting some weird shroud on the 24-70E’s rear element that is the shape of current sensors. I don’t think it will allow the square sensor you want. I think it’s to reduce sensor flare maybe? Idk. 🙁

        This may be on only one lens, afaik, but it shows how they are thinking.

        • Nyarlathotep

          LOL, that’s funny, but as usual, I imagine T.I.M is actually using his obscure D900 reference (30 x 30) and not a reference to a Nikon 30mm x 30mm sensor. Not that it wouldn’t be an interesting prospect.

        • T.I.M

          true, D30x30 mean D810,000 square root.
          I don’t want to go back in jail by using the real name of the next high resolution Nikon DSLR

          • Captain Insane-O

            Oh…. Lol. I thought you wanted a square sensor. Isn’t 30mmx30mm the largest square size sensor that could work? Coincidence I guess.

            • T.I.M

              OMG, no, in my Sinar digital view camera the sensor is almost 5×7″ (inches).

            • Captain Insane-O

              I was referring to nikon f mount image circle size limiting Nikon to a square of 30×30.

              I’m aware of large and medium format sensors 🙂

            • T.I.M

              if Nikon f mount is limited to 30x30mm, how does it cover the actual 24x36mm FX sensor ?

            • Captain Insane-O

              Draw a circle on a piece of paper.

              Now draw a square as large as you can.

              Now draw a rectangle with dslr apsect ratio as large as you can.

              Technically you can have a 40mm wide sensor as the diameter is over 40mm, but it will be only a few mm tall

            • T.I.M

              so you mean a 30mm diameter circle ?

            • Captain Insane-O

              A typical image circle is 43mm in diameter for fx.

              If you put a square 35×35 sensor you would need a 51mm circle as to not cut off the edges.

              The shorter the rectangle the wider it can go.

              A 30×30 sensor is about the largest that will still work with current lenses.

              This is why I keep thinking you want a square sensor camera lol.

            • T.I.M

              it depends on your lenses, my PC-E lens have a much larger image circle to be able to shift up-down, left-right.

            • Captain Insane-O

              I can’t speak to pc-e lenses besides the fact I want one bad.

            • T.I.M

              The 24mm PC-E is great for architecture and landscapes (this sample) the 45mm PC-E is great for studio work.

            • Captain Insane-O

              Nice, I really like the miniature effect I’ve seen.

            • catinhat

              This type of correction can be easily done in software if you leave enough room to crop without cutting into the main subject.

            • T.I.M

              Unfortunately it is not true.
              Look carefully at both images, you will see details on the right (tilted) image that does not exist on the “regular” left picture made without PC lens.
              No software in the world will create images that does not exist.
              I have photoshop full version, I would not invest $$$$ in Nikon PC-E lenses if photoshop could get me the same results.

            • catinhat

              I’m not sure if you’re talking about the resolving power. I’m talking solely about distortion and perspective correction. I find DxO ViewPoint quite effective at dealing with those. The only catch there is leaving enough room around the edges and that could be easily underestimated. Anyway, I’m sure if everyone agreed with me Nikon wouldn’t be selling PC-E lenses, and architecture is not my primary pursuit.

            • T.I.M

              Look at the window circled with yellow.

            • Captain Insane-O

              Damn, without that extra bit of window you would have a bad photo lol.

              That’s a great point and I assumed software was good enough. But it leaves out lots of little bits of detail. Not so good then.

  • Aldo

    Gray d7200 + gray d750… or one d500.

    • T.I.M

      D500 is not fast enough for cat pictures…
      Here is my 5 years old baby.

    • Allen_Wentz

      Good refurbished year-old tool vs. better brand-new tool. Your choice.

      If you like the consumer-grade D7200 by all means buy multiple copies. It is all about choices.

      • Captain Insane-O

        Since the sensors are within a 1/4 stop of low light, and the d7200 having better base iso performance, oh and the fact that neither are professional bodies(according to nikon). Not to mention 20% better resolving power.

        You’re paying a huge premium, in cost and performance, for the 10fps and killer af. Though the d7200 does have extremely good af, especially in the not so dim light you would be shooting an apsc body in anyways.

        So really, you can buy an a6300 and this camera and still have amazing af and even better 11fps. What a time to be alive!

        • Horshack

          Agreed. The D7200 selling at 1/3 the cost of a D500 is quite a gut-check for those thinking they really need a D500.

          • Captain Insane-O

            Yeah, I gladly paid more for my d5500 when it first came out. That thing is so tiny, I love it for hikes and vacation.

        • Allen_Wentz

          1) Anyone who puts the D7200 body and the D500 body as similar in overall build and tough-conditions competence probably has not handled both cameras.

          2) Where Nikon places a camera in their marketing is not even on my list of things considered in evaluating camera body competence.

          3) With the D500 body many photogs will be shooting tele in dim light.

          4) AF competence (especially in low light high ISO) is not a small deal, it is huge.

          • Captain Insane-O

            1)Try re reading. I said neither is pro
            2) Nikon designs the camera for specific reasons. If they designed or for pro use it would be marketed as such.
            3) the d500 barely has better low light than d7200, and the d7200 has excellent low light af.
            4) the d7200 doesn’t have s crippling low light af. Perhaps you need better technique, but I have never had a problem focussing in low light with either the d750 or d7200. The difference is the d7200 uses me focus recompose and the d500 can go wider.

            Spending $1300 for slightly better low light, excellent fps, and -1ev focussing advantage.

            • Allen_Wentz

              Yeah I know you said “neither is pro” apparently based on Nikon’s marketing decisions. Have you even tested the D500? Those two bodies are hella different.

              My evaluation of pro or not pro body competence has nothing whatsoever to do with Nikon’s marketing schema.

            • Captain Insane-O

              I did play with it during their marketing campaign. It is a nicer body than the d750& d7200 and I’ve said that. Doesn’t change the fact that I’m right.

              If the designers don’t think its a certain grade, then I won’t. You didn’t engineer it, you didn’t test it, you held it. Holding is not a real stress test, I’m sorry.

              So what if it “feels” better. You don’t know for certain that it is better. Rigidity can cause more problems. Semi trucks have enormous amounts of flex in their frame to protect it from damage. Just because something feels stronger doesn’t make it so.

              The d7200 can shoot in the rain and sand already. Is the d500 better weather sealed? Unless nikon releases actual testing standards you can’t possibly know without doing statistical (or at the least anecdotal) testing.

              So, it’s not classified as a pro body, and there are no empirical benefits to it over the other enthusiast models. You are just shouting hyperbole.

            • Allen_Wentz

              You say “no empirical benefits to it over the other enthusiast models” and since it is brand-new that is a correct statement. We will see “empirical” after folks start really working them, but personally I do not need a long test to rank the D500’s body well above the other enthusiast models.

            • Captain Insane-O

              Technically that is anecdotal evidence. True statistical outcomes necessitate measures to reduce confounds.

              I.e., drop a d7200 from 20′ and it will break from a drop, but drop a d500 from 5′ and it survived the drop. That doesn’t prove it is stronger.

              But you go ahead and rank it light years ahead. Being “good enough”to not have problems is just as good as “built like a tank.” If you have problems then it is no longer “good enough” (clarification)

              To each his own. The d500 does have more controls and a nifty thumbstick. It also has a much stronger flexy screen over the d750. I’d personally get the a6300 over it now that I know they have virtually the same sensor performance and fps and dramatically better 4k. But I’m saving for a house, and my fiance balances out my spending habits.

              Does anything I say take away from any current Nikon? Hell no. They all produce amazing images, and I’ve never had a problem with my consumer d5500, despite many trips and baggage handlers. Hell, my old d3200 pictures still make me smile, and no one ever complained about its dynamic range or noise or dof.

              I’ll complain though, my d5500’s af is frustrating at times, and the d3200 has no buffer for jpeg let alone raw. So I paid more for better features. Haha.

            • Adam Fo

              It is classified as a pro body by Nikon NPS.
              https://www.nikon.co.uk/sites/NPSApplication/productlist.aspx

            • Adam Fo

              If you scowl down and look at the parts photos like the all metal mirror box and chassis it’s obvious the D800 is built to a better standard than the cheaper D7100. For example, on the D4, D500 and D810 the lens mount screws into metal and on the cheaper models into plastic. See
              fixyourcamera.org/nikon-d800
              fixyourcamera.org/nikon-d7100

              Both the D750 and D500 are classed as pro-grade cameras by Nikon Professional Services. They are on the list of eligible NPS equipment sent out to me.

  • Captain Insane-O

    What a steal for an amazing camera!

  • KT

    Making room on the shelves for the mighty D500

    • Captain Insane-O

      Nikon does that? Interesting.

      But there are no d500 on store shelves. Nikon marketing made sure of that!

      • AlphaT

        Maybe he meant D5 ???
        🙂

    • Mark Coleman

      A few months ago I got my D7200 for a few bucks less than this at Adorama. It was listed as refurbished, not a mark on it. The shutter count site showed the first picture I took was picture #1.

      • I think for a while Nikon has been using refurbished channels to sell brand new gear at lower price with limited warranty.

        • Andrew

          This is very good news indeed. The autofocus system (focusing in very dim light at -3EV) in the D7200 makes it an incredible camera at this price. And of course at this price, you can afford to get it repaired at an official Nikon service center if the need ever arises.

        • PhilK

          The problem is you never know what the history is of something sold as a refurb.

          In many locales there are laws that stipulate that a product that is sent to a reseller and then sent back to the manufacturer or distributor for any reason has to be re-classed as “B-stock” – ie refurb – at that point.

          So in such a case, cameras sold as refurbs may simply have gone to a reseller and gotten sent back for “stock balancing” or somesuch.

          But a refurb buyer has no assurance that is what they will get. They could also get a camera that a previous owner sent back for repair 5 times for intermittent problems that were never fully resolved. 😉

      • Captain Insane-O

        Thanks

  • stormwatch

    If it only had better red channel…

    • yepits me

      A bad workman always blames his Tools…
      I find absolutely nothing wrong with the D7200.

      • stormwatch

        Try drilling a proper hole in the wall with Fisherprice Bosch drill machine, and then come to me again.

      • Captain Insane-O

        The red is a little lacking. But it still produces excellent results.

        The high iso 100% crops of the d7200 d500 & d750 show the effects of this. It just looks a little flatter in certain colors. Not really noticeable without a comparison though.

  • David Weinehall

    Too bad that with import duties and shipping it’s 900€…

  • Paco Ignacio

    It’s over

  • was tempted too but D500 you cant go wrong. pocket broken once again.

  • Spy Black

    How low can it go?…

    • Captain Insane-O

      One… Two…. Th-uh-ree (3)… Crunch. The world may never know.

  • Nikon1isAwesome!

    “scowl down”

    • Adam Fo

      I guess a Canon Fanboi might be scowling as scrolls through Nikon goodness…

  • doubledark

    back up to $799

  • toxictabasco

    I just pulled the trigger on a D7200 at Adorama for 20 bucks more. Nevertheless, I didn’t realize there were so many refurb D7200 sold in the past 3 months. These things are selling like hot cakes.
