The new Nikon D750 wasn’t the camera many Nikon fans had hoped for, a true successor to the vaunted Nikon D700. Whereas the D700 was basically a pro camera in a prosumer body, the D750 is a prosumer camera, period. As such, Nikon still hasn’t launched a camera that can follow in the path of the D700. For Nikon fans, the D750 wasn’t really needed.
But for Canon fans jealous of the dynamic range that Sony’s sensors deliver in the Nikon (and Sony A7 series) cameras, the D750 might well be the answer to their dreams. Because if the D750 is close to any other camera in specs, it’s to Canon’s 5D Mark III. The only major difference seems to be the price, with the Canon being about $1,000 more expensive than the Nikon.
That’s why I wrote when the D750 was launched that it wasn’t aimed at Nikon consumers, but at Canon buyers.
Let’s back up a bit.
