Nikon D7500 pre-order options


The Nikon D7500 is now available for pre-order at Amazon:

B&H and Adorama are currently closed for Passover. I will post the pre-order links once they become available (most likely tomorrow).


UK pre-orders:

Nikon is expected to start shipping the D7500 in June.

    in 2017 with plenty of choice of other cameras and manufacturers, I don’t see why anybody would want to pre-order this one. It’s not ground breaking in any way.

    • James Jackson

      It’s groundbreakingly disappointing.

    • Semaphore

      Not everyone buys cameras to be “groundbreaking”. Sometimes people just want a competent tool for taking photos that doesn’t break the bank.

      • Sawyerspadre

        D500 = pro
        D750 = travel cam, light, decent video, less $
        It’s smart to keep some space between this and D500.

        • Brett A. Wheeler

          According to Nikon website:

          Pro = D5, D810, D810A

          The D500 is not a pro camera.

          • T.I.M

            D500 is a pro DSLR

            • Aldo

              d3xxx is a pro camera too… used by Disneyland professionally to make money.

            • T.I.M

              Don’t play dumb, you know what I’m talking about.

            • Antonio

              As he is talking about Disneyland shouldn’t you refer to “Dumbo” instead of “dumb”?

            • T.I.M

              I don’t know. I’ve been there several times but all I remember is the turkey legs.

            • Antonio

              Oh!, I would expect that Dumbo, the flying elephant, to be a quite known Disneyland character…even in your island… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

            • T.I.M

              we have elephants seals…

            • Aldo

              Im not playing dumb… I was merely illustrating that the professional term is purely subjective nowdays.

          • Regardless of what the Nikon site says, the D500 has the control layout and build quality of a “pro” camera. For pros it’s a niche camera. It’s the replacement for the D300s which WAS listed on the Nikon site as a pro camera.

          • Thom Hogan

            You’re talking about the top-level marketing, right? But Nikon actually posts something different elsewhere ;~)

          • DefectiveSpleen

            Yes it is. D500 is PRO. Look at the control layout compared to D7XXX series. It has the round viewfinder, AF-ON button, dual card slots, etc. Pro layout, just like the D810, D700 and D300s. Also, no PASM dial with the dinky scene modes.

          • D500 is the PRO crop

        • D750 and FX cams aren’t the best for video, unless you’re making an indy movie, or something that allows you to get several takes.

          For events, the smaller the sensor, the greater the DOF, and the easier it is to nail focus. This is why the Panasonic cams have been so popular–the video is good, and the usability is par excellence.

          The price on the D500 will be low enough (not MSRP) to appease all the folks who want what was chopped off the D7500. Except that damned grip!

    • waterengineer

      What did you not get that you wanted?

      • badtorro

        I have commented on the possibility to pre-order this camera. My only complaint about it is, that it’s seems nothing special comparing to competition. It’s just a next aps-c camera.

        I personally look forward to Nikon introducing EVF. I don’t care for mirrors, but EVFs are cool

        • Antonio

          Do you think that all the other models but this one from all the other manufacturers add “something special to the competition”?

          The possibility to pre-order this camera is not something that has more to do with the freedom of choice, or do you also think that all buying decisions are fully rational and at a given moment all buyers end up buying the only model that stands out of the crowd and offer all the best facilities, way of implementation and performances compared to full spectrum of the competition?

          Declaration of interest – I have nothing to do with Nikon and I will not buy this camera, so please consider my comment only in what respects to the pre-order offer and your opinion about it.

          • badtorro

            Given Nikon being one of the most popular and recognized camera company in the world, I think we can expect groundbreaking technology in their camers. Instead this role is taken over by Sony and Fuji.

            • Antonio

              That seems demanding Nikon (or other manufacturers) too much as the industry is under pressure from competition and customers to add new models and what we see globally are incremental improvements more than disruptive innovations and frequently they leave a lot of people unsatisfied, either because the brand doesn’t meet their expectations or GAS demands always more than the manufacturers want to provide taking into account the market segment the product is intended or the price level they want to label it.

              And don’t forget all manufacturers have a portfolio of technologic innovations or improvements in advance to the timing to incorporate them in the products they offer to the market and that is defined both by their competition strategies and perceivable quality by the customer, even if some times they may risk to make very costly mistakes as we could see with Kodak that went bankrupt not because they had no R&D arguments but due to the way they interacted with the market and lost the timings… let’s hope this will not be the case of Nikon, namely to play their cards in the mirrorless segment.

    • DefectiveSpleen

      It is a big step backwards with a SINGLE SD card slot. Even the 7100 and 7200 had two. Also NO support for AiS manual lenses. WTF!

    • I dunno. Carbon fiber shatters pretty spectacularly when it hits the ground just right. On-ground-breaking?

  • James Jackson

      Flagged. We don’t want this kind of talk here. Bad enough with politics intruding on NR now and then.

      • Michiel953

        Politics are allright, to a certain extent… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Once again like the Nikon DF they screw it up again!. I hate to say it but it looks like they are bowing out of the budget market. I suppose I may go to Fujifilm!

    • RodneyKilo

      Did Nikon lose money on the Df?

      • T.I.M

        They can’t loose money from the Df, nobody bought one!

        • Michiel953

          You’d be surprised T.I.M. mon cher…

        • RodneyKilo

          Nikon didn’t sell any Df’s?
          Then why hasn’t the model’s price dropped at B&H since day one, over 3 years ago?

          • T.I.M

            call B&H, ask them how many they have in stock, probably less than 10

            • RodneyKilo

              Call Nikon, confirm they have sold no Df’s.
              Ask them why they haven’t dropped the price- not to mention haven’t dropped the model- in 3-1/2 years, despite there being no sales.

          • Thom Hogan

            Mostly because Nikon has kept supply low.

            • RodneyKilo

              So Nikon has kept the supply low so and the price high, in order to lose money with the Df because nobody has bought it.

            • Thom Hogan

              I don’t think they lost money on the Df. But the Df was really an experiment on Nikon’s part that had the side effect of taking a lot of extra D4 image sensors so that the sensor cost came down for them.

              The question is whether or not Nikon learned anything from their experiment.

              My takeaway is that the Df was well-liked by a subset of Nikon fans, but had a few Achilles heels that needed tending:
              * A little too much Frankencamera: F3 mated with 610 produced quite a few idiosyncracies and dissonances
              * Not enough attention to manual focus aids
              * Most newer AF lenses tended to be too big; the camera could have used a small, redone base lens set.

  • Andreas Vesper

    All in all: the 3rd disappointing product upgrade by Nikon within 8 months.
    Pro:
    – Tilt display
    – 8 fps
    – D500 sensor
    – weight
    – the price of the D7200 will decrease
    Con:
    – Snapbridge – needless to say anymore about it, it’s a pita and the reviews in the app stores are speaking a clear language that everybody understands except Nikon.
    – actually no Wifi as it’s controlled strictly via Snapbridge
    – Only one card slot
    – price

    • Tom Vestvik

      One card slot? My D7100 got two. Assume the D7500 got two too.

      • T.I.M

        To compensate the only 1 card slot there is a new function, you can choose to record your picture twice.

    • T.I.M

      $1200 what’s wrong with the price?

      • just hold off for a month or 2 save and get the d500 literally no one should buy this camera…the d7000s are pretty much being given away on ebay and Craig’s list so for 700 you can get a used d7000 and a camfi or case air and have the same features and money for a 50mm 1.4

      • badtorro

        refurbished d500 costs 1400$ and it’s a way better camera

    • Dylan Wood

      Nikon is keeping the D7200 in the line up. So I wouldn’t expect much of a price drop.

  • T.I.M

    I like the carbon fibers body, that will match the DX lenses with plastic mount. (and my carbon fiber tripod)

    • Michiel953

      Carbonfibre is not plastic. You’re some sort of Frenchie right? Then you should know.

      I’ve got a French made-by-hand carbonfibre racing bike (a Time RXRS Ulteam TdF ltd edition…); it’s not plastic at all.

      • T.I.M

        I know what carbon fibers are, by the way bikes made with carbon fiber were dangerous because in case of a crash, the carbon fiber become very thin and sharp long needle that perforate your body.
        Make sure your bike is made with rounded-crossed carbon fibers. (like camera tripod legs)

        • Michiel953

          I actually prefer a steel framed bike, but my Time is pretty good. Not overly light, lifetime warranty, don’t think it’ll break into shards anytime soon.

      • John Albino

        Actually, carbon fibers technically CAN BE and usually ARE plastic. In general usage carbon fiber is mixed with a plastic resin so that it can be molded into shapes such as a camera body. See the Wikipedia entry for carbon fiber and you see.

        • Bob Thane

          Yeah, while carbon fiber itself is not a plastic, it’s very rarely useful in its purest form so odds are the carbon fiber Nikon uses is a composite with plastic.

        • Michiel953

          Yes, I know that (and about Kevlar, Vectran etc). It still isn’t plastic.

      • T.I.M

        Yes the Rafale have plenty carbon fiber, that’s maybe why nobody is buying it.
        :o)

        • Michiel953

          No, I think that’s because the manual is in French ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • yepits me

            Not to mention they speak from the outside of their mouths.

            • Michiel953

              Where that Gauloise is dangling? Merde…

      • thundrrd

        Sorry, but where did Tim say carbon fiber is plastic?

        • Michiel953

          He ‘inferred’ it, in his inimitable French way..,

  • Bob Thane

    Ha, it’s actually $50 cheaper to buy the D7500 and 18-140 separately than it is to get them in the bundle.

    • manattan

      That’s not surprising. Nikon does that frequently with new camera launches. They try to get the dumb folks to buy without thinking.

  • T.I.M

    OK, here is what’s going on.
    The D500 is a nice pro DX camera, the D7200 is a very nice DX camera used by pros.
    So there is a problem, D500 & D7200 are to close to each other.
    Professionals buy D7200 to make money and prosumers buy D500 to show off.
    So Nikon had to make a prosumers DX camera that does not cannibalism the D500 sales, here come the D7500 with plastic body, 1 card slot and a 20MP sensor (D7200 have too many MP compared to the D500)

    • silmasan

      Maybe we’re going back to the pre-D7000 era? D90 doesn’t have dual card slot iirc. And it went along just fine with the D300/D300s positioning. So this is the effect of the Dx00 return. We finally have a D95. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I disagree–I bought the D500 for the AF. D7100 AF was flaky for me. I like being able to take three quick in focus group photos on the first try, rather than two in focus, and seven more out of focus.

      The D2x, D300, and D700 could accomplish this task. The D7000 and D7100 could not.

  • Giuseppe Pho

    Check out the bottom of the camera, I’m not seeing the connection port for the vertical grip??

  • Tony

    Body only UK price is ยฃ1299 (which corresponds to over $1600 at current exchange rates).

    • I updated my post with the UK links.

  • MB

    Why does it seems more like an upgraded D5xxx than D7200 to me …

    • Aldo

      single card slot

      • MB

        No support for non CPU lenses …
        O yeah and tilt screen …

        • Bob Thane

          Wait, so things like some Samyang/Rokinon lenses won’t work? Or do you mean just AI lenses, but non-CPU lenses like more modern manual focus lenses would work, because my D5200 works nicely with unchipped lenses.

          EDIT: Looked into it, looks like we’re talking about the AI indexing tab which allows for metering with AI lenses. So other lenses should still work fine, and AI lenses will still mount and take pictures, you just won’t get an accurate light reading so would have to do trial and error or check exposure with liveview instead of relying on the meter in the viewfinder. So not a big deal unless you use AI lenses a lot and don’t check the rear lcd ever.

          • MB

            Samyang does cpu … just not AF …

            • Bob Thane

              The new ones do.

            • MB

              Yeap …
              D7500 does not have Ai coupling so metering will not work … just manual mode … as on your D5200 …

            • Bob Thane

              Sweet, works for me then.

            • I might have considered this d7500, but I have four ai-s lenses I want to continue to use when I want and want ’em to work like they do on my D700. So, just like the D5600 series cameras, this body is not for me. Sad. Cause otherwise it’s pretty nice.

              Why is Nikon crippling these essentials on a rather pricey mid range body? I thought they wanted to grow market and stay in business. Lots of old and great manual focus ai, ai-s lenses being used out there.

            • BVS

              I thought ai-s lenses were chipped. Isn’t it just the ai (non-s) ones that aren’t?

            • Ric of The LBC

              nope

            • Ric of The LBC

              maybe works like non-ai lenses on the Df?

            • Bob Thane

              I suppose for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s probably an extra cost to accommodate AI metering, so they save some manufacturing dollars. Secondly, this might push D7x00 users to upgrade to the D500 or better if they really need AI metering and want a better camera, thus resulting in a bigger sale for Nikon. Thirdly, it could prompt users to move away from AI glass and buy new lenses, again resulting in more revenue for Nikon.

          • T.I.M

            I think only very old Nikon lenses won’t work (like the ones Ken collect).

            • MB

              You can mount them but all the good stuff … like you camera light meter will not work … it is a constable drawback for people actually using AI lenses … like the fastest current Nikon lens 50mm f/1.2 for example …

          • sandy

            Don’t forget there are menu options to program NON AI lens into your camera.

            And you can convert your lens…
            http://legacy2digital.com/nikon/

        • sandy

          All chipped lens,like my Rokinon, will meter fine. It’s only the real old Pre chipped lens that won’t meter. They will still work you just have manually meter them.

          • MB

            Yes … if you consider all Nikon manual focus lenses except 500mm f/4 P from 1988, the 1200 – 1700 mm f/5.6-8.0 P ED and 45mm f/2.8 P really old … even current ones …
            http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/#manual

            • sandy

              Can’t they manually be registered in the camera menu system? I think that allows the lens to work.

            • Sandy Bartlett

              Nope

        • Ric of The LBC

          maybe, maybe not. S or P mode will not work but in A or M if the sub-command dial is used to tell the camera what aperture the lens is set to then it will meter. That is how the Df works with non-Ai lens and I get great results with them. A slower process for sure.

          Speculation on my part

          • MB

            No it will not, that feature has been ripped of D7500 and that is what i am trying to say …
            Let me quote Nikon manual:
            “Non-CPU lenses may only be used when the camera is in mode M. Selecting another mode disables the shutter release. Aperture must be adjusted manually via the lens aperture ring and the camera metering system, i-TTL flash control, and other features requiring a CPU lens can not be used.”
            Nikon Df on the other hand has not only Ai coupling ring (as D7200 and other better cameras) but also a mechanism from Fx cameras that allows mounting of non Ai-s lenses so that is completely different story …

            • Ric of The LBC

              Ok, Thanks for the clarification. But Ai lenses can be used. Just will not be automated.

              If the tab is gone could non-ai lenses be mounted?

            • MB

              Most likely yes If you really want to … unlike D7200 ๐Ÿ™‚ …
              And you can use histogram in live view as a exposure helper … but it will be extremely difficult to focus … lets say almost unusable for anything but long tripod landscape shot …

  • Santhosh

    Will the price on refurbished D7200 drop in price? Its been around $699 on Adorama since last year (April 2016).

    • T.I.M

    Nikon sucks, Olympus sucks, Canon sucks….they all suck. None of them can get this camera stuff correct. I just had such an overwhelming sense of anxiety about this card slot thing that I threw all my cameras out of my window and crouched in a corner for the past hour.

    Now that Nikon has anounced the A7500 what do you think the probability is that we will also have a D820 in time to buy it by the beginning of July ????

    • Davidvictormeldrew Idontbeliev

      Bit naughty – should have stuck to 2 X SDXC slots UHS-I / II same configuration as the excellent D7200.

    • James Michael

      I am not willing to overlook the missing 4 megapixels.

      • Sandy Bartlett

        3 meg

        • James Michael

          3.3 megapixels and even 1 pixel less is a downgrade. They should have added the new features to a 24.2 megapixel sensor. The D7200 is still better.

          • I dare you to make a 20″x30″ print from each and tell the difference!

            It takes a quadrupling of MP to get a linear doubling of resolution. And a linear doubling is what it takes to make a visible difference.

            Add to that: the D500 is cleaner. Noise robs resolution.

            • James Michael

              They should have just cleaned up the 24mp sensor. Less is less, especially if you need to crop.

            • Eh, that’s just not how sensor design works. That’s not how any of this works. One doesn’t just “clean up” an existing sensor. Unless you’re talking about dust!

              Less is less, except when it comes to noise. In that instance, less is more–less noise = more resolution.

              But I can say it a million times and you’ll never believe me. Compare the two. Compare raw files. Compare images online (I recommend Imaging Resource as a good place to start)

              Your unwillingness to accept that this 20mp sensor is superiour to the elder 24mp one is not grounded in reality. But it’s clear that you’re fine with that. Have at!

            • James Michael

              Are you telling me that Nikon is incapable of making a 24mp camera that performs as well as a 20mp version?

              Your low opinion of them is astounding? Maybe you should switch to Canon or Sony.

            • Your misinterpretation of my comment is astounding! (Although with your punctuation, perhaps you’re implying that your question your own question…?)

              I’m saying that things like max readout speed and noise are fixed aspects of a sensor’s design, and you can’t just take one chip and make it “cleaner”. They wanted higher frame rates. They couldn’t get exactly what they wanted from any other chip they had access to.

              Examples of recycled chip designs that didn’t change fundamentally without massive redesign: the 12mp FX chip in the D3/D3S/D700 and the A7s (only ever tweaked processing and CFA). The 36mp chip in the D800 and the A7r (max frame rate 5fps). The 24mp chip in the D3x and the D600/D750 (max frame rate 6fps and only tweaked processing and CFA).

              It’s likely that Nikon either didn’t have access to, or didn’t like the performance of the sensor in the a6*00 series.

              See my other comments about the resolution difference…it’s demonstrably negligible. The d500 sensor is very good.

          • Sandy Bartlett

            The 24mp sensor cant do 8fps or 4k. Plus Nikon already has the new 21 mp sensor. Learn to read.

            • James Michael

              Somehow the 24mp Sony a6300 manages 11fps and 4k video. School yourself.

            • Sandy Bartlett

              Different Sensor. Not the one they sell to Nikon. School yourself.

            • James Michael

              Nikon could have used the same sensor that Sony used and made the camera 24mp. Just because you accept mediocrity doesn’t mean I do.

            • Sandy Bartlett

              Nope, Sony purchases that sensor exclusively for its own brand. Nothing even slightly mediocre about the 21 mp sensor.

            • James Michael

              Sir,
              It is the effort that is mediocre, and not the sensor. I have no problem with the D500 and the 20.9mp sensor. I shoot a lot of sports and wildlife, and would love to have one myself. The D7xxx is a general purpose camera line and should be an all around performer.

              A new model should be at least a little better in all aspects than the old one. The D7500 is not. No GPS, only one card slot, low res screen, less mp, etc. If they really wanted to make it better, they should have convinced Sony to provide the 24mp sensor. It seems like the bean counters have taken over Nikon. This camera could have been so much better than what they gave us.

  • japangelo

    so this wont work with my AI/AIS lenses right?

    • Ric of The LBC

      maybe, maybe not. S or P mode will not work but in A or M if the sub-command dial is used to tell the camera what aperture the lens is set to then it will meter. That is how the Df works with non-Ai lens and I get great results with them. A slower process for sure.

      • japangelo

        The ai indexing tab is missing on this one and everybody is saying that older ai/ais won’t work at all..its quite a stupid move from Nikon..there has to be a workaround..if not I won’t bother buying this

        • Ric of The LBC

          Nobody knows if they will work or not.

          The Ai tab might not be needed, IF, BIG IF, the aperture setting can be told to the camera through the sub-command dial. Two step process.

    • nwcs

      It’ll work with chipped ones it appears.

      • japangelo

        That’s stupid..i have ai/ais lenses..so this camera is out of consideration

        • sandy

          I believe you can manually program a handful into the camera menu system so the will work.

          • Sandy Bartlett

            Never mind, not true. You can get lens’ chipped though.

    • Ric of The LBC

      the more I think about i, non-Ai lenses may now work. Which would suck because the prices may go up.

  • br0xibear

    Camerasize.com has the D7500 in their database now, so you can compare it to whichever body you want (except the D820 concept which I haven’t posted online yet, lol)…

    BETTER NEWS:
    Ok, everyone is disappointed by the D7500, let make the rest of the day better.
    Right now the Oben CT-2491 carbon fiber tripod is on sale for $300 ($200 off)
    It is a terrible “regular” tripod because it have a very wobbly center column, but it make a great tripod to use with a gimbal (just trash the center column).
    It is very light and able to support a Wimberley gimbal + D7200 + grip + SB900 + TC-20E III easily.
    The tripod is rated 40lbs support but I would not use it for more than 25lbs.

    • Aldo

      Does it come with the camera and lens?

      • T.I.M

        yes, plus the DVDs, the cat and my mother in law (free shipping)

  • Ok, if the D500 is under ยฃ400 more which to buy ?

    • T.I.M

      Buy the D500 or the D7200, D7500 is for people who buy cameras at the store.

    • MB

      They also forgot to upgrade obsolete 20Mpix D500 previous generation Sony sensor first used in a5000, although slightly improved to allow 4k video but only using half the sensor (area less than m4/3) … so your wide 16mm lens becomes roughly 50mm equivalent … still image quality is actually much improved … but Sony next generation 24Mpix sensor as used in a6300 that uses the entire sensor for 4k video and has PDAF will not be available for other brands for some time … another grain of salt in the wall ๐Ÿ™‚

      • The D500 sensor is great what crack are you smoking?

          Why, you want some?

    • Davidvictormeldrew Idontbeliev

      Not bad camera but if people want to update their D7000, D7100 wait a bit until stock come available, any bugs ironed out and for price to decrease a bit – agree with MB on the video front – wished the whole sensor was used for the 4K Video capture.

    10 GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE 7500 :

    – cost $250 more than the D7200
    – only 1 SD card slot
    – plastic-carbon body (don’t leave it in your car)
    – lower battery life (950 vs 1100 for the D7200)
    – no vertical grip available (to me this is the worst miss)
    – not compatible with AI-s lenses.
    – 4K only in crop mode (from a crop sensor)
    – 4 million pixels went in the trash
    – ugly strap hooks (old stock from the ’90s)
    – no Kerguelen Islands winter mode effect.

  • Nikos Delhanidis

    i think Nikon choices for the 7200 replacement are showing maybe (another) marketing confusion moment. D500 is now found for 1700 โ‚ฌ, (even 1600 by the end of the year?) If someone would give 1300 โ‚ฌ for D7500 why not give 1700 (or 1600) for dual (faster) memory slots, new significantly better AF system, 10 fps, battery grip option (probably needed for the short battery life also), pro level rigid body etc?

    • James Michael

      I don’t understand Nikon’s thinking on the D7500. There is little reason to upgrade from a D7200 or even a D7100. If those owners wanted a sports/action camera they could just get a D500. The 7xxx line was a general purpose crop camera, and the loss of 3.3 megapixels is not a good thing. D7xxx owners looking for a solid GP camera would have to go to the D750/D760 (or whatever).
