My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Thanks. After a long, fairly hot summer, I'm not sure what to expect this winter

I'll share some thoughts, and I already own both a D3300 and a D7100.

Add a D700? Yes or no...

Sure, I'd love to nab a D750, but I really don't want to spend those dollars right now.

Do I need a D700 or a D750; no. Want; yes.

What do all of you Nikon users think?

Thanks!

I really enjoyed my D700. I moved to it from a D7000. It is quite a bit bigger and heavier than your other two bodies. At 12mp it's also going to give you a lot less resolution. The files aren't significantly better than the D7000 created - for me the D700 focussed better however. It also had the FX appeal that I could not get past.

tyr-sog, everything about that picture is PERFECT... except for the background. I know there was probably nothing you could do about it, and it was an opportunity shot.. but I wanted to congratulate you on recognizing a great image before the shutter was even clicked!

Jason,
Depending on your budget, you may want to entertain the idea of a D7500..

Now, I read the reviews... and I watched the slew of Youtube videos, comparing it to this and that,
the D500 and the D7200, etc.. etc..

Well, I bought the D7200 and returned it inside the window, and added some milk money to
upgrade to the D7500.

I must say, IMHO... 99% of these reviews were made off *spec, and spec alone* because
I can attest, it is night and day! The D7500 is pure pleasure to shoot with where as the
D7200 wasnt even as good as my D5300. (sad face).

I know others with disagree, and thats fine.. I am only stating my experience and
feelings on the two (three?) cameras.

Ive not shot a D500, but the few reviews that call the D7500 a "D500 Lite", may actually
be more accurate than the masses think!

Some may try to diminish the D7500 by saying "its parts of this camera, and parts
of that camera, kind of hacked together".. and there may be some truth to that, but
I call that innovative because the features and performance of this camera amazes
me every single time I shoot with it!!


HTH,
Andrew

Pagman,

I own the 5300, I looked at the specs on the 5500 to try to determine what the difference is.

From what I can see, the flippy-twisty screen is now a touch screen.

I cannot attest that it is equal to the functionality of my 7500.. however, if it is (the screen, not the camera)
similar in performance and function, I can attest that I LOVE the screen on my D7500.

One thing about the 5500, it has a flippy-twisty screen like my 5300 (non touch screen), and IMHO
that is one of the best configurations Ive ever used. My 7500 only has a partially tilty screen.. It
works fine.. but not as near as nice (in manipulation) as the 5300/5500.

The 5300/5500 will NOT have the features of higher end cameras (7xxx series), missing out on
HSS/AutoFP, 1/8000, faster frame rate and deeper buffer. However if these feature losses
on the 5xxx series are not a deal breaker for you.. Im confident you be happy with the
the features and image quality!!

My 7500 allows me to tap the menu, make menu selections, swipe though images, pinch enlarge images,
tap to focus and take a picture, etc. I cannot tell you if the 5500 shares the same ability so please do more research.

Im comfortable stating that any of the 5300 and above and 7200 and above, to include 3300 and above..
will all deliver impressive image quality that you should not be disappointed.

Hope this helps,
Andrew

I had the D7100 and rather heavy nikkor 300 f4 if ed prime (the none af-s one - and no VR) I sold it as it was too heavy and un flexible with just 300mm all the time, I currently have a Olympus MFT system but I want to come hme to nikon but need to loose the weight so the D5500 seems to fit my needs list, along with this I am also considering the Tammy 70-300 VC lens as I hear it is also very good for its price.
