Nikon D780 – what others are saying:

It’s fair to say that most of the D780 improvements over its 2014 predecessor, the D750, are on the live view side. For instance, while it’s just marginally quicker than the D750 in optical mode at 7 fps, you can hit 12 fps in silent live view mode. You also get phase-detect AF with face priority, eye-tracking and subject tracking all in live view mode. (Engadget)

The Nikon D780 is a replacement for one of the most well-rounded DSLRs ever made: the D750. It’s still built around a 24MP sensor and 51-point AF system but the more you dig in, the more you discover it’s a much more capable machine: a DSLR that’s learned a lot from mirrorless.Many aspects of the camera’s behavior, from autofocus and video performance to interval shooting have been significantly improved, bringing a lot of the Z6’s capabilities to F-mount owners. (Dpreview)

Still, the camera does fall short of my hopes in a few areas, most notably the continued lack of an AF joystick and/or a touchpad AF implementation (the latter is offered in the mid-range D5600). I also would have liked to see some bump in resolution, though the updated sensor (likely the same as the Z6’s) does offer some image quality improvements. Still, I’m jazzed as heck for 4K video (with usable video autofocus!), a touchscreen, faster burst shooting and better AF, even if Nikon did remove my precious pop-up flash truly handy as a fill for back-lit portraits. (Dpreview)

Nikon says the autofocus system is much-improved, making use of an algorithm from the pro-level flagship D5. When using live view, the D780 has the same 273-point AF system as the Z6, which should make it a much more practical option than other DSLRs if Nikon’s claims hold true. The live view mode supports continuous electronic shutter speeds of up to 12 frames per second, while the mechanical shutter can fire at up to 7 frames per second. (The Verge)
