Hello everyone, long time no talk on this forum for me. I recently acquired a Nikon D750 and wanted to share my thoughts on it as a long time Canon user. I wrote an article about my experience with a a lot of example photos so that you can see what type of quality images this camera produces. The ergonomics and color curves/tones of the photos are slightly different between the two brands and I hope this write up will help anyone who is thinking about making the switch. It's not meant to be an in depth review, more a general user and shooting experience.

As a nikon D610 user, i considered upgrading to the 750. I rented it and tested it indoors over a long weekend. THe low light
capabilities are impressive, but i was not impressed by the lack of an af-on button. To back button focus, you have to adapt the ae-l/af-l button and that button on the 750 is pushed toward the viewfinder in what i found to be an uncomfortable position. Granted,
that has to do with the size of my hand (medium) and what is comfortable for me. I find the 610 more comfortable.
I liked the low weight of the 750 and the autofocus system is a significant improvement to that on the 610. However, the 750
is NOT as ergonomically comfortable and well-laid out as the 810, which felt perfect in my hand. I found the grip on the 750
a bit disappointing as well since it left little room between the lens and my hand.

I am a nikon user who finds canon colors more pleasing to my eye - especially skin tones. Therefore, i await the upgrades to the 6D
and the 5Dmark III before deciding what to do. As a hobbyist, i don't need the 810's enormous files, nor the 5DIII's expense.
It will be expensive to sell my Nikon equipment, and that is whay I was disappointed with the 750. I had hoped it would solve
my conundrum - and it did not.

May I ask what it is about the D610 that makes you want to upgrade?

Not thrilled with the focal points being grouped so closely together; would like back button focusing without adapting the Af-l/ae-l button; a bit disappointed in skin tones, especially when comparing them to those produced by my friend's mark III. I also had a service issue with the lens mount cracking internally, but sustained arguing and working myself up-the-ladder finally got Nikon to cover the cost as a "one time only complementary service" but therefore not under warranty.
Of course, i knew about the centering of the 39 focus points prior to purchasing the camera so that was my decision, but one that i have some regret about when i get tired of focusing and recomposing or a moving subject gets blurred out of focus. The 610 is overall a fine
full-frame entry camera, but, yes, there are better cameras produced by both Nikon and Canon.
I will repeat that the 810 felt perfect in my hand, but i don't have the desire and skill to deal with those large files.
Last: when my kids were young, i enjoyed my nikon (film) camera. It was smaller, lighter, and so enjoyable to use. I guess i would like to get that ergonomic, user-friendly feel again. SO, i am looking - at the 750, at mirrorless (sony A7II?), and, other systems. having
said that, i am not telling anyone that the 610 is a bad choice. It is a fine camera, with limitations that can be worked around.
