Nikon D7500 DSLR + NIKKOR AF-P DX 10-20mm f4.5-5.6G VR lens
  • Nikon D7500 DSLR + NIKKOR AF-P DX 10-20mm f4.5-5.6G VR lens
  • Nikon D7500 DSLR + NIKKOR AF-P DX 10-20mm f4.5-5.6G VR lens
  • Nikon D7500 DSLR + NIKKOR AF-P DX 10-20mm f4.5-5.6G VR lens
  • Expert Rating

    4.50 / 5

Pros

  • Excellent image performance
  • Even lighter than the D7200
  • Competitively priced
  • Versatile - landscape or close-up, the lens does the job

Cons

  • No second card slot
  • Less pixels in the image sensor - Effect? Not much at all
  • VR Lens isn’t compatible with any Nikon camera models released prior to 2013.

Bottom Line

Better than some full frames in this price bracket. More than fills the gap between the D7200 and the D500 in Nikon’s APS-C range.

Would you buy this?

  • Price

    $ 1,999.00 (AUD)

The colour and contrast in photos out of the D7500 is impressive whether shooting in JPEG (Fine is the best of the three settings) or RAW. You don’t really need to shoot in RAW unless you are a pro or serious amateur - the outcome in JPEG (Fine) is really very good and will suit many people who just want good, clear, sharp, lifelike photos and either don’t have the time or the inclination to spend hours/days running dozens of photos through the Photoshop/Lightroom blender.

The D7500 with the Nikkor 10-20mm f.4.5-5.6 is a small and light enough to be a go anywhere DSLR ideal for travel, daily trips, social events and plenty more. Nikon has a winner here.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
