Nikon D750: Incremental Move Forward, but Plows no New Ground

Pre-order the Nikon D750 at B&H Photo.

As an incremental and worthwhile advance, the Nikon D750 makes sense: a full-frame sensor with tiltable rear LCD (allows angled shooting more easily), and the now de rigueur wireless support which surely will be embedded in all cameras before long.

The Nikon D750 looks to be a solid offering. In viewing its rear control layout, its seem to match the D810 control layout, which is important for anyone considering a D810 + D750 pairing: the variance between the D600 and D800 drove me crazy when shooting the two together. But I cannot say whether its operational behavior is identical.

Innovation is not to be found, not even following in Sony’s footsteps by offering 4K video and an optional hot-shoe-mount EVF. And surely it is time for Nikon to think about ditching that mirror box in at least one model for a high res EVF model. The D750 is a solid incremental advance and that is not a bad thing, but neither is it exciting.

In terms of value, when I look at any camera over $2000, I look at the total system cost over time. At about $2299, its $1000 less than than the Nikon D810 which seems like a lot more, and it is a lot more—without context. But consider lenses and accessories: what is the total system cost and in that context, does a D750 make sense versus a D810? The D810 seems likely to hold better resale value too. 24 megapixels is enough for most all purposes but if one is shooting high-grade lenses, then it makes more sense to go to 36, because 36 is if nothing else oversampling or higher image quality in total.
