Looking for honest opinions on the D750. Looking to pick one up sometime in the near future. They go for about $1300-1800 for the body alone. Been doing some research and what I can find is that this is probably the best camera for this price point. Not looking to spend over 2k on a body.

Thanks in advance! :clap:

I love my D750. Its really have been fun shooting with it. I like the focus response it has especially in low light. Its one of the reasons why I upgraded from the Nikon D90. Lets see what else? Ah I wanted to shoot Full Frame. I played around once with the Nikon D700 and loved what I got out of it. Coming from the D90, I wanted several things to justify buying another camera. 1. better capabilities of shooting in low light. 2. better Auto Focusing 3. well just something cool to use which is the tilt screen.

However You can get similar results with the D7100 or D7200. I just helped a friend get a used Nikon D7100. I swear just looking at both the D7100 and D750 they look the same. The menu is slightly different. You have more adjustments in the D750. When you go up in models, you get more. Sorta like 330ci vs M3.


Before getting my d750 I wanted to make sure I had enough to get some nice glass. Look around B&H. I helped my buddy get a used D7100 and two lenses from them. The body was listed as an 8. It had the battery grip cover missing which cost little or nothing to replace but other than that it looked nice. You can get the D750 for $1200 and use the saving to invest in a nice lens. The 24-70mm is a beast on it. The kit lens that comes with it, I heard, performs well too.


here are some of my photos I took with my D750 https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/


I hope this helps. Basically D750 is a win. If you want to save money and shoot with a cropped sensor, D7100 or D7200.

So did this help? I just got back from Holland and Paris. I took my D750 around. In Amsterdam I had my 24-70mm attached and in Paris my 50mm. My Paris photos aren't the best because I was rushed and didn't want to stand out too much. I did have some fool try to scam me in the train station though. So glad I didn't have my camera out then, or it would have be snatched.

750 is a nice machine. Im a canon user and shooter, and when I work with a friend of mine who is a Nikon goof, I use his 750 for weddings. Low light is excellent and the camera is lighter than the 810. Its a full frame and has the option of 1.5 crop as well.
Get it, Im sure you won't use half of its potential ;)
