Digital Camera World Verdict

Although we have a few niggles with the Nikon D750 compared to more recent DSLR and mirrorless rivals, it is an excellent camera. It has a professional-level AF system, and is capable of producing superb images even in tricky conditions. Even in the context of the newly announced D780 remains a capable – and cheaper – full-frame DSLR for enthusiasts. Its lower price is more reflective of its age than its abilities, and means it is curiously more appealing today than it was maybe a couple of years ago.

The four-year-old Nikon D750 has just been upgraded in the shape of the Nikon D780. However, while it may now be relatively prehistoric in digital camera terms, the D750 remains a very capable all round DSLR option – particularly for any photo enthusiast looking to make that jump from APS-C sensor DSLRs to full-frame photography for a reasonable spend. 

In fact, the Nikon D750 is near the top of our list of the cheapest full frame cameras you can buy. We're seeing this a lot these days: older cameras staying on sale at vastly reduced prices, to produce some of the best camera deals around.
