Nikon D7500 verdict
The drop to 20 megapixels will be 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. It might look like a bit of routine range-filling on Nikon’s part, but it plugs an important gap in the line-up.
Nikon D7500 competition
Canon EOS 80D
Canon’s powerful enthusiast DSLR has more pixels, but can only manage seven frames per second and doesn’t shoot 4K video.
Fujifilm’s top DSLR-style mirrorless camera is tough, compact, has an excellent X-Trans sensor and can shoot at up to 14fps.
The D7200’s 24MP sensor is super-sharp and it’s still a competitive model today, especially as its price has fallen since launch.
