The D7500 has arrived (@ 20mp)

350,- cheaper than D500, slower fps and touchscreen not thought through. This touchscreen in only 1 axis articulated? Focus points selectable by touch only in LiveView? One more DSLR to remain in the shelves.
In camera AF adjustment - standard at D5 and D500 - not available? Right Nikon, do castrate your models just by software, customers will run for it :lol:

Well, they are in minimal efforts, maximum effect mode.
To be fair - Canon has been playing that game ever since the 50D.
Let's face - what were the last "real" innovations in DSLR space ?
- Pentax in-body IS
- Sony's SLT
Anything else ?
Ever since about 2010 new DSLR releases bored me to death.

Nikon's in-camera AF adjustment "kind-of-semi-automatic" comes in mind, even if a bit half hearted.
Pentax did a lot of things with moving sensor besides of in-body IS like high resolution multi-exposure, you even can shift the sensor a tiny bit and it has a star tracking mode.
Canon's dual AF also would come on the list.

After reading Nasim's comments, I have to correct myself (and guess where he knows that feature from?): There will be in-body-AF-adjustment. But no second card slot (pardon me? all D7xxx had that, why stopping now?) and no ability to use a grip (thank you Nikon, because your genuine grips suck without exception! expensive, made cheaply and wobbly, no additional use).
Nasim's final comment:
Quote:I will be honest with you though â€“ I would much rather see DX lens releases. Nikon is putting yet another nail in its coffin by announcing more DX cameras than lensesâ€¦
Nothing to add from my side

But Pentax did a bit more with the moving sensor. And the SLT is in DSLR world still unique - so why did not Canon refresh their invention? The disadvantage of SLT is loosing light for both, finder and sensor, so I just think, Canon didn't want to receive tons of negative comments about that.

Well the advantage is a steady mirror therefore in theory a faster fps without any highly precise AND robust mirror mechanics - this saves money for the manufacturer at first place. Speaking of battery life - this memory users of mirrorless cameras need to let go. At times I see the battery indicator bars walk out of the display. Walk, not run but still, imagining a full day normal shooting with one battery - that's running into the trap of wishful thinking.

No viewfinder blackout comes also into mind there (with full electronic shutter).
About the OVF - you may debate whether this is a disadvantage. ;-)
Due to the lack of mirror slap, it light loss is at least partially compensated.
Just mentioning - you will never realize the measured LW/PHs of the 5Ds R in the real world with activated mirror (the tests are done in live mode).
