New D750 owner reporting! Picked mine up yesterday. First impressions are pretty good, body seems nice and although I've been using Canon for over 10yrs, it all seems pretty logical to me. So that's a big plus. Performance and IQ is amazing, only letdown for me (for now) is the 24-120/F4 which isn't bad at all, but it seems not as sharp as the 24-105L I had on my 5D3. Did some focus tests to be sure it's not front/back focussing and it's not, so it's just the lens itself. Have a 85/1.8 on the way too.

You might consider selling the 24-120 and replace it with the Sigma 24-105 Art lens. I purposely avoided the 24-120 based on some reading I did. The sigma is mighty sharp, plus of you get the usb dock from Sigma you can make significant adjustments to the lens.

No issues at all. I love it. It's my most used lens. If I did have an issue I'd use the dock for corrections.

I've got more Sigma than Nikon lenses in my kit and no issues with the Sigma lenses. They perform in AF just as well as my Nikon lenses

Been testing and trying out my D750 for a few hours now, and the more I used, the less impressed I am to be honest. I also find it pretty strange to see dust blobs already on the sensor, being a new camera (making me doubt if it's not a return...). Very much considering to take it back :/

If I were you, I'd definitely take it back. There is no sense being the least bit unhappy when spending that kind of $$$. Just my opinion. I hope you can find a suitable fit.

Good to know that if you mess up and forget to pull ISO back down after a night shoot there is still good detail :D

I have to agree the files from this camera are still making me go whoa! I know last weekend I was shooting my kids soccer game and somehow had screwed up with setting my EV correction to +1...and it was a bright sunny day out!

The files were still correctable in LR! Files that I would have previously chunked away in the bin....

Question to the crowd - In my Canon when I was in aperture priority, there was a way (or maybe it was default setting) where it would prefer bumping ISO before dropping shutter speed... While on my first outing with the camera I was snapping my kids running around at the park and I noticed in Aperture priority mode it preferred lowering the shutter speed BEFORE bumping the ISO over 100.


Poe wrote in post #17502485 (external link)
It looks like you'd need to change your shutter speed setting to something faster so that the ISO bump kicks in sooner as far as I can tell from reviewing the manual. I didn't see anything about changing the priority between modulating shutter speed vs. modulating ISO to maintain exposure.


Out of pure dumb luck while resetting my camera in preparation for taking some pictures tomorrow I ran across the answer to my question! I had recently added ISO sensitivity to my custom menu and when I went into ISO sensitivity to make sure it was set to base 100 I also went into minimum shutter speed, obviously it showed the same list of shutter speed settings that I had seen before starting at the lowest of 30 seconds and working it's way faster.. I decided to see what the max setting was ( 1/2000) and then it reaches AUTO... here is when I noticed that upon highlighting AUTO there was an arrow to the right...

When I first got the camera I was new to Nikon and didn't realize that this arrow was there at all. BUT when I clicked towards it. I saw a menu that listed SLOWER and FASTER with an arrow allowing you to bias the AUTO shutter speed. There are 4 increments, and the default setting appears to be in the middle , towards the far left was slowest, and towards the far right it biases towards faster shutter speeds. With a quick informal test as several ranges between 24mm and 70 mm setting my lens to f/8 I saw that the bias towards faster did a great job of keeping my shutter speed high, I saw anything from 1/320 to 1/1100 and when I biased towards slower I saw settings like 1/6 to 1/13 as norms. Coupled with Auto-ISO it did a fairly decent job!

Again I rarely go into aperture priority mode but sometimes I do hand my camera to my wife or someone else who knows not how to adjust settings for picture taking purposes or every now and again when I am run and gun shooting this might be helpful to know. Also it actually seems more flexible of a system than my Canon 70D in was in this aspect. So glad I stumbled upon it and wanted to quickly share to you all! So this basically does what I asked about earlier, tells the camera when in Aperture priority and using Auto-ISO and setting Min-shutter speed to prefer faster shutter speed and to bump up ISO FIRST in order to solve the light triangle :)

That's a nice feature. I have my D4 on AutoISO except when using flash and use that feature set one increment faster than middle. From my experience, the middle is close to 1/FL and the single increment to the faster side is I think a full stop faster (1/2FL)
