The Nikon D7500 lowers its price so you can shoot fast and save cash

Looking for a DSLR that’s fast, but not go-broke-quickly kind of fast? The Nikon D7500 is currently $200 off for a body-only price of about $800 at several retailers. The D7500 earned a recommended badge during its review for the camera’s fast performance and 8 fps shooting mode.

For photographers that need a lens to pair with the D7500, the deal also extends to the kit with a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G lens. The bundle is about $1,100. Or, the D7500 is also paired with a brighter lens with not quite as much zoom, the AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm for $1,400, a $670 discount. The deal also includes free shipping.

The D7500 is one of Nikon’s best crop sensor DSLRs and while a crop sensor won’t produce image quality on the same level as a full frame camera, the smaller sensor means a lower price and an easier time finding lenses with reach. In our tests, the D7500 produced solid images, even in the trickier low light.

But where the D7500 really shines is the speed when compared to similarly priced models. The autofocus tracking using the 51-point autofocus system is impressive, and ideal for pairing with the camera’s 8 fps to capture action shots. The camera can also handle 50 RAW files at that speed before slowing down, or nearly endless JPEGs.

Photographers upgrading from the earlier D7200 will notice a few differences, however. The resolution steps down by a handful of megapixels, though not in a way that noticeably affects image quality — in fact the D7500 has a bit wider ISO range because of that resolution change. The D7500 also no longer has the dual SD card slots, a feature favored by semi-pros for preventing the loss of files with the same images being recorded to both slots. The battery life is also slightly reduced, but sits at a still good 950-shot battery life.

When the D7500 originally launched, we recommended the DSLR for the blend of speed and performance at a great value. With a few hundred dollars off the body, that value just got a little sweeter for photographers patiently waiting for the right time to upgrade.
