Nikon D7200 Review Summary
Nikon D7200 Assessment
The D7200 is the new Nikon APS-C flagship. It combines a refined 24 MP sensor with class-leading native ISO range and fast processor to deliver great image-quality and speedy performance.
This is a sturdy professional DSLR with efficient controls for both stills and video. It shoot continuously at 6 FPS and record 1080p video at 60 FPS with stereo sound. It offers a 100% viewfinder and dual control-dials in a weather-sealed body.
The performance of this digital SLR is great except for metering. While this is correctable with careful use of EC, it can be a serious annoyance for some. Images show very low noise with excellent retention of details, class-leading dynamic-range and pleasing colors after some tweaking. WB is not perfect but close and can easily be corrected.
The bottom line is that the D7200 is a refined D7100. While it offers improvements in several aspects, none is substantially improved other than dynamic-range. As an upgrade from an entry-level or mid-range DSLR, the D7200 is certainly worth it. Those who already own a D7100 already should probably wait for a leap in technology.
