VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The bigger buffer delivers better performance when shooting RAW images of moving subjects.
  • The quick and simple Wi-Fi implementation makes sharing photos easy.
  • The camera is best in class at low-light performance for capturing images without a flash.

CONS

  • The 7200 has a fixed screen, which doesn't give a photographer the flexibility of a pivoting screen.
  • Autofocus in when shooting from the LCD in live view is too slow to use in some scenarios.
  • The highest sensitivity is available for JPEG shots only, not for higher quality RAW shots.
The Nikon 7200 shows evolutionary improvements over its predecessor, the D7100. Although targeted at enthusiasts, the unit has a sturdy build and excellent resolution for a APS-C format camera. It sports Nikon's latest Expeed 4 processor and a hefty 24.2 megapixel sensor. The shooter is Nikon's first DSLR to support Wi-Fi and NFC; you tap your phone against the camera to establish a wireless connection. Nikon boosted the buffer size so the 7200 performs better than its predecessor when shooting RAW images of moving objects. The unit also does a better job of capturing images in low-light conditions.

The D7200 is quick to turn on, focus, and fire—it does so in just 0.3-second. But its burst rate isn't the fastest in the world.

For our money, the most important change in the Nikon D7200 is a significant increase in buffer depths, meaning that it can capture around two to three times as many shots in a continuous burst.

The good news is that unless you really miss that built-in Wi-Fi, you're not going to kick yourself for having just bought a D7100 -- except perhaps if the price drops significantly. And if the D7100 gets cheaper it's going to be a much better value for the money than the D7200.

This is not a camera that you can really use one handed...all of the buttons are spread out across the camera body. However, they’re all within easy reach of either your left thumb or your right thumb.
