It has received excellent consumer and professional reviews for its price range. The D7200 has big improvements from its predecessor, the D7100. The most notable is the larger buffer size, which will allow 3x more RAW pictures. The movie mode has added a 60p (60 progessive frames) mode for silky smooth video in Full HD.

For its price and performance and substantial upgrades from the previous model, the Nikon D7200 DSLR is a Smart Review Top Pick for 2015-2016.
