The "Buy Now" and 2nd link in the details are linking to an OOS d7200. The bulleted link seems correct though.

FYI no dual cards on this 7k series model. Big negative imo.

Big negative for who? The action shooter who takes a zillion burst shots? Yup... YouTube star that shoots tons of vlogs? Yup... the average Joe who wants a flagship quality camera for a super good deal?... nope... point and shooter?. .. nope... someone who just want super good quality stuff?... nope

please specify why why this is a big negative? Please elaborate!

I just bought one for my daughter (thanks OP!!). She's an amateur photographer... I suggest reading reviews! This is a SUPER DUPER awesome camera, especially for the price!! Please compare this camera and it "single" card vs any other camera at this price plus the price of a decent lens ( I got a refurbed 18-140 Nikon lens from Amazon for $270). So take that $1100 price tag and please show me a camera of similar quality, single or dual card... does this single card quality really detract it that much? Doesn't take too long to swap cards... a photographer with some awareness should be able to swap cards and anticipate when to do so.

this camera is replacing a good old Canon 40D... served us well... it too only has one card... hmmmm... never been an issue with us... average Joes.

OK so dual cards are not a big deal for you. Cool! You never had a card go bad, nice! It does happen. My post wasn't just for you. Many people looking at this camera, will consider using it to make money. Dual cards are a nice feature for peace of mind (when writing to both cards, for instant back up) when taking non repeatable pictures of events.

My post is an FYI. Its a great camera, but one of the huge selling points of the 7X00 series camera over the Canon X0D cameras was dual cards. You may expect dual cards as this is a 7000 series, so FYI, now the latest in the line doesn't have dual cards.

That is a disappointment, and was a great feature that set it apart from the similar spec X0D Canons. I might be tempted to look at a Canon and compare all the features and see what I liked. For example I really like the articulating screen for video on a 70D. The single card slot make the gap closer.

Refurb Canons get a full year warranty, Nikon's get 90 day. A quick glance at Canon's refurbs and there's an 80D with a 18-135 for $1199. If I shoot video a lot the 80D wins. If I only shoot stills, I'd have to dive into the specs as they are pretty similar in actual use, ignoring gimmicky features that don't actually help taking pictures. If I was getting into wedding photography, a 7500 with dual cards would make it an easy choice.

If you think upgrading a camera will improve your daughters pictures, I'm sorry to have to say, but she is going to be disappointed. I would have advised spending less on the body and investing more in a quality tripod, flash (if she's into portraits), glass and most of all, lessons. They will have more impact on her pictures than the difference between a 7200 and 7500. Even the 40D and the 7500. Put a 40D in the hands of a quality photographer and they will take better photos than an unskilled amateur with a 7500. That's just a fact.

Bottom line, upgrade your skills, before your gear.
Peace

Now that's a more like it! Just saying a feature (or missing feature) is a big negative without any explanation is not helpful. You're response to my post IS helpful.

But don't assume that me or my daughter don't have the skills to use a camera, guitar, hockey stick... whatever it may be. Or have proper equipment. I could say my daughter is a killer drummer, guitar player, and pianist... and photography is nothing but a hobby to her... but knowing how she operates, she can figure it out... is the 7500 the right camera for? The 40D? Does it matter? Does Phil Rudd of AC/DC need signature Sonor Drums? Eddie the Eagle need the top of the line skis? A hockey or soccer player that rides the bench all year, do they need top of the line equipment? Not up to you to decide that... but... giving a proper explanation on the negativities of a camera or whatever... that's helpful... and that may have swayed our decision.

You had 4800 shutter count ? I would return it if manufactured refurbished has a shutter count of 4800.

I received mine today (1st, 3 days after ordering), ordered on the 29th, I choose free shipping and it was estimated to get here on the 6th so I was happily surprised. Just checked the shutter count and it is at 33. So far everything looks good on it, I will use it a lot over the next few months to make sure.
