Digital Camera World Verdict

Nikon's decision to drop the resolution of its top APS-C DSLRs to 20 megapixels was a surprise to many and this has a slight impact on the D7500’s outright resolution – but its speed, low-light performance and overall image quality are first rate. At first it looked like a bit of routine range-filling on Nikon's part, but as the market has matured, prices have fallen and rivals have changed... and the D7500 now has few direct competitors.
