Nikon D750: Long-term review

August 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Back in February, I purchased my Nikon D750 (you can read my initial thoughts here). When the D750 first arrived, I was absolutely ecstatic and incredibly impressed by how much better the image quality was than my D7000. I was also surprised at how little noise there was in the images, even at ISO 12,800, and how much more comfortable the slightly deeper grip was compared to my old DSLR.


Opinions when you first purchase something, especially if that something is expensive, can be drastically different on the first day compared to after some time has passed and the newness has worn off. Now that I've had my D750 for a little over six months, done plenty of sessions and personal work with it, and taken it on a week-long road trip, I've figured now is as good a time as any to revisit and share my thoughts on the D750.


Very fortunately, I absolutely love the D750, still. I love the DSLR so much, that I don't even really think about the D810 or the D5 like I used to. Before I had the D750, those were THE cameras to me. The file size of the D810 ended up turning me away, and the price of the D5 isn't practical for me right now. I considered waiting for the D500, which some people consider to be a better DSLR, to come out before making my decision, but I wanted a full-frame sensor so went with the D750 instead. If I had to make the decision again, I'd go for the D750 without a doubt.


The two things that I didn't like when the D750 arrived are still issues. One of them, the autofocus points being crammed in the middle of the frame, will never be fixed, while the other, the back LCD screen turning on when I change the ISO, will probably never be fixed either. I'll still hope for a firmware update, but I've gotten used to screen turning on, so I guess you win this one, Nikon...
