Amazon’s deal of the day is the Nikon D7200 DSLR body for $720. Best Buy has the same thing on sale but for $980 so this is about 1/3 off the list price.

A great camera. It’s one generation behind (D7500 is latest) but takes amazing photos. You can get it with kit lens or pick up some separately.

Customer Reviews:
It wouldn’t be fair for me to give this camera four stars, although I do have reservations about a full five… | I have been using a D90 for nearly 8 years, and finally decided this was the time to modernize. I just wasn’t able to get the bird shots I wanted with the D90 and a Nikkor 300mm f/4.0 plus TC14E ii, and was blowing out highlights on flowers. Without too much planning I chose the least expensive delivered-for-free supplier on and had to return it because of no Nikon Canadian warranty coverage – it was a grey market kit camera with the kit lens removed and a “body only” sticker on the kit box. But with hummingbirds about to fledge I was getting desperate, so ordered a replacement from before even getting the return authorization from the seller. It’s taken me a while to adjust to all the differences, but once I got the settings I wanted, particularly seeing and adjusting the ISO in the viewfinder and learning the AF options, I was set. It does everything I’ve expected so far, and the match with the 300 is fantastic. Am making use of the dual cards to manage NEF’s more judiciously. Focus control is great, although it could use more phase detection detail. It’s showing up the resolution of most of my lenses, although the larger files mean I’m probably going to be running out of disk space sooner. The larger files certainly slow down Lightroom, and transfers to the iPad – DNG’s are double the size. But my only REAL complaint is the incredibly bad WiFi support for the camera. It is awkward and slow to establish a connection to an iPad, the associated app is extremely limited in functionality and speed, and doing anything else on your iPad while connected means, usually, losing the connection and starting all over again. Basically this WiFi implementation should be an embarrassment for Nikon. This is a function I thought I would use, but after three weeks am still struggling with it. | However, I am very happy with the camera. Although I have considered going MFT to have a lighter kit, I am not at all unhappy with sticking to a DLSR just a little longer, particularly as I can get a lot more mileage out of my lens collection. To change to a kit similar to my Nikon setup would have cost a fortune, with lower quality.
