The arguably best DSLR – Nikon D850 already made it’s way to the first happy customers. We have seen pictures of the box, the camera, unboxing videos, and happy owner’s faces all over the internet. We’ve also seen the first images coming from this amazing camera. ISO comparisons, and samples of its capabilities, especially when coupled with a good performing lens. Speaking about good performing lens, we are coming to today’s question. Why Nikon keeps pushing this mediocre performing lens (24-120mm) as a kit lens for it’s pro cameras?
Few days ago Gunther Wegner published an open letter to Nikon. He is a well-known time lapse-, nature-, landscape and wildlife photographer, based in northern Germany. Gunther is also originator and developer of the LRTimelapse. There he admires Nikon for finally acknowledging Time-Lapse photography. Gunther Wegner suggests some important updates that could be done in the future Nikon cameras to make the process of doing time-lapse easier and well-controlled. Gunter also suggests his help and expertise if Nikon are willing to use it.
Last night Nikon announced D7500. One would think it is a successor of the D7200, but in several interviews Nikon clearly stated that this is not the case. They even confirmed this in the D7500 promo video for Nikon Canada. The full specs you can find here. But this is not a full review article. I want to share my thoughts about this release. We know it is Nikon’s 100th anniversary this year. And we all expect something big and important to be released – like the Big Bang for Nikon – a mirorrless DX or FX, a new retro camera, new MPx beast, etc. Instead, so far we receive small camera upgrades. And let’s think for a second about this one – Nikon D7500.
