Kind of the same question as above...would like a nice 4k dslr...canon seems to be a rip or hesitant...I have one decent canon lens, but wouldn't mind making the move to nikon and getting a nice lens that works for video...what do we do!?!?

for APSC none on the Nikon lineup. Fuji and Sony has some, or m43 such as Panasonic. Nikon is best for stills, video is okay.

This is a good deal for still photography, video is ok only 4k 30p and HD 60p. Nikon and Canon is still relevant today since it is supported by a lot of 3rd party lens which is cheap but quality lenses. Being an old format means there are tons of lens selection from ultrawide lens to telephoto. D7500 has a smaller 20 MP than the older 24MP D7200/D7100, advantage is slightly better low light, but faster processing.

Here is my lens recommendation:
Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 $350 (or 11-20mm for $450)
Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 for $270
Nikon 35mm or 50mm f1.8 for $150-$200
Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro for $350

Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro for $350
I prefer the Sigma 10-20 for daylight landscape and Real Estate pics. I picked one up used for $200. The Tokina is better in low light and Astro.
The 70-300VR is an excellent lens for the money. I use it a lot for wildlife. I found one on eBay for $80 since the owner thought it was broken and didn't know about AF-P... I also like the 35mm 1.8G. I use macro tubes together with a 18-250 Sigma. $250 new, which is also my travel lens with the 35mm. For clowning around I have an 8mm Samyang.
The camera is great for fast action. I get great wildlife handheld with the 70-300mm. Coming from a 7000, I don't really miss the second sd slot.

That said I only do stills.

Camera experts. Does it make sense to buy refurbished? What are we losing by buying a refurbished vs a new one?

This is a decent stills camera but as a video tool?

From DPReview:

"Here's why: Autofocus during video capture is noisy, jumpy and prone to hunting (see video above). Simply put, it's nearly unusable. This is one area Canon's Dual Pixel Autofocus beats the pants off of Nikon. And, if you switch to manual focus, there's no focus peaking option to help you out."

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/...pability/4

Let me save you from my past mistake: wobbly AF makes otherwise decent video useless. Manual focus needs skill even with focus peaking which this doesn't have.

Note the 4k is cropped from an APS-C (already cropped) sensor. That's a 1.5x crop of a 1.6x sensor. Check page 190 of the manual: http://download.nikonimglib.com/a...(En)04.pdf

That seems very limiting.

Nikon refurbs have a 90 day warranty. Canon refurbs have a full 1 year warranty. Both are great cameras with the nod going to Canon's AF for video. I'm a Nikon shooter (D300S, D3400, D7200) and they are excellent tools. That said, my gf shoots the Canon 80D and I love everything about it. If I was starting out and looking for a APS-C sensor camera, the 80D would be my choice. Go to a real camera shop and play with what interests you. Take a SD card and shoot some images to view when home. THere is much more to a camera than spec's. They will all capture a great image, but only if YOU do your part.

Thanks for your reply. My questions were more on lines (buying refurbished vs new one). For example, I 'd never buy refurbished wireless routers, reason being probably the refurb piece was a returned piece due to a bug which was hard to repro. So manufacture decides to sell it as refurb after a couple of tests. And now the new user lives with the same problem. Buying some straight forward mechanical items should be fine.

Not sure, if that theory holds for cameras. I mean why would someone buy new when refurb is almost half the price? A significant price drop for cosmetic defects looks too good to be true.

Many people shy away from refurbs. As long as it is Manufacturer refurbed I have no problems. My D7500 was refurbed and looked and worked like new. White box was the only difference. I had other refurb Nikons with similar good experiences. Imo real manufacturer refurb is the key. Not 3rd party.

Only with Nikon Refurb! Yes it totally makes sense to save $450 vs New. What you are losing is 1yr warranty, Nikon Refurb is only 90-days but I wouldnt worry too much as Nikons are built to last. Most Nikon refurb are returns or minimal issues. Shutter counts reported are between 50-10,000 which is like new. You are also getting a white box instead of the original packaging. What not to get are 3rd party refurbs, only stick with Manufacturer Refurbished.

I bought a refurbished D7200 and it had 20 shutter actuations, and was in mint condition. Use it hard the first 90 days, and I would suggest it will last as long as any other.

Ummmm, refurbs at half the price? What cameras do you see that in? A refurb Nikon D7200 is $629. at Adorama vs new at $696.
