The value performer gets an update – Nikon launches the new D7500 (updated with price)

The value performer gets an update – Nikon launches the new D7500 (updated with price)

Updated 9/6/17: Singapore prices for the D7500 have just been announced. 

Carrying on from 2015’s D7200, the Nikon D7500 is said to have “significant improvements” from its predecessor in terms of both video and stills performance. For starters, the new camera gets the same EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and DX-format 20.9 MP CMOS sensor first seen in the APS-C flagship D500 camera.

This means it will now have a native ISO range of 100-51200, while also being able to capture 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video in 30/25/24p. The camera will also be able to capture up to 100 JPEG frames or 50 RAW frames (14-bit) in a single burst at up to 8 frames per second, a significant increase from the D7200’s limit of just 18 shots in RAW.

Getting the monocoque treatment means the camera is lighter than before.

Also, the D7000 series finally gets the monocoque treatment, bringing the D7500’s weight down to about 640g (body only), down from the 675g of the D7200. In another welcome move, the D7500’s rear LCD also gets full touch capabilities, so you can use it to select focus points or to navigate the menus.

Highlight-weighted metering has also been brought over from the D500, as has the 180k-pixel RGB sensor. However, the AF-system remains the same 51-point system (with 15 cross-type AF points) as that on the D7200.

Snapbridge support makes it easy to share images directly to social media.

As with most of Nikon’s recent releases, the D7500 will of course support Snapbridge, allowing for features like remote capture, geo-location tagging, and letting the camera automatically stream all your captures to your phone for easy social sharing.                 

Local pricing and availability of the D7500 isn’t available yet, but Nikon USA’s website has it listed US$1,249.95 (body only). Local pricing and availability will of course be updated once we have that information.

*Update*

Pricing and availability has just been announced for the D7500.

The D7500 will be available from 13th June 2017 at all authorizer resellers for $1,999 (body only) and $2,419 (D7500 body and AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 F/3.5-5.6 G ED VR kit set).
