Conclusion

The D750 has many things going for it: an incredible battery life of 1,230 shots (CIPA standard) on a single EN-EL15 (which is also the same battery used by the D610, D800, and the D810), a relatively fast continuous-shooting rate backed by an excellent autofocus system, and a highly capable CMOS sensor that will give you excellent images. While S$3,079 isn’t a small amount of money, it certainly isn’t completely out of reach of most enthusiasts.

Handling is excellent overall, and the camera feels solidly built even with the new monocoque body design and the inclusion of a tiltable LCD display. More importantly, the camera responds well with fast, accurate autofocus and you now get Wi-Fi capabilities built-in (though the companion app needs some work), so there’s little to nitpick on, especially if you already have a collection of full-frame lenses. Just like the D700 before it, the D750 excels in providing an excellent feature set for a reasonable price and maybe just as importantly for others, in a slimmer, lighter, and more consumer-friendly body overall.

Looking at other opinion pieces and reviews online, it seems apparent that many professional photographers are taking to the D750 as a second body, and with good reason, as there's very little you can't do with this camera, with the exception of the most demanding jobs that would require the extreme resolution of the 36-megapixel D810 or a medium format camera. For those looking to move from enthusiast to professional class cameras, this should be your first stop, as the cost savings can go towards another professional grade lens or some lighting equipment which will probably give you more value in the long term. As of this point, if you're looking for a full-frame camera and you're not locked into any particular system, the Nikon D750 is a camera we'd wholeheartedly recommend, and that's why it gets our Editor's choice award.
