Nikon D750: Conclusion
Compared to more recent DSLR and mirrorless competitors, while we have a few niggles with the Nikon D750, it is an impressive camera. It has an AF system at a technical standard, and even under tough circumstances, it is capable of generating excellent images. A capable and cheaper full-frame DSLR for enthusiasts persists, even in the sense of the recently announced D780. Its lower price represents its age rather than its expertise, which suggests that today it is curiously more attractive than it was perhaps a few years earlier.
