Better, buffer: Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review posted - Mon, 02 Mar 2015

Nikon's D7200 has some big shoes to fill. The D7100 was one of our favorite midrange DSLRs of the past few years, and though it's by no means a radical upgrade, the D7200 presents some notable new features. It has a 24.2MP CMOS sensorwith no optical low-pass filter, an updated 51-point AF system sensitive to -3EV, a much larger buffer that can take up to 27 Raw images at 6 fps, and Wi-Fi with NFC.Read more

Hands-on with Nikon D7200 - Mon, 02 Mar 2015

Nikon's new D7200 is an evolutionary upgrade to the D7100, and fixes one of the few major complaints about that model with an increased buffer depth. Other improvements are more subtle, but the addition of -3EV sensitivity to the D7200's 51-point AF array will please low-light photographers. There's also Wi-Fi with NFC, 1080/60p video, and improved battery life.Click through for some hands-on images

Nikon's prosumer line gets an update today in the form of the D7200.
