Yes, it seems like Nikon made this camera to try to convince current customers to move to mirrorless or meet the demand for video (do people really use it that much?) At this point, it looks like most with a D750 that don't need video should move to the D850. One of my main annoyances about the D750 was how the focus points are all in the center of the frame. Now you can get them over a larger area only if you look at the LCD. It better be bright to make this work in daylight! If the high ISO is really amazing, I might consider it.I like what I see, but at the same time I dislike what Nikon has decided to remove. I think it creates some resentment amongst loyal Nikon customers especially at these price points. Also if you take away the non-live view functions, the improvements aren't as cutting edge over the D750.
I highly recommend using a rear mounted LCD loupe if the D780 live view works well with AF-D lenses. It's the best next option after a dedicated electronic viewfinder. I use this universal foldable magnifier loupe on my Nikon 1 J5. It should fit the rear of the D780 as well. Perhaps you can find one similar in your region.This is my FTZ adapter bringing eye AF to the AF 85/1.4D. It comes with a built in camera instead of being put in between lens and Z body, but so what...
Oh, and the 135/2 and the 80-200 should work too.
Will have to wait for first reviews on how reliable eyeAF and screwdrivers work together. If at all?
A very expensive adapter. Will fall in prive soon.
I am certain the new 780 is a step forward in many ways, especially the sensor and processor. However, I am still learning how to make my 750 do more and more and see no reason at this time to "upgrade" to a camera with many features I know I won't use. I am just not a video shooter.No reason there for me to upgrade from 750 to 780, in fact more reason to stick with the 750: built-in flash and grip-worthy.
ouch, that's gonna hurt salesDPReview - https://www.dpreview.com/articles/3590701564/the-nikon-d750-vs-d780-should-you-upgrade?utm_source=self-desktop&utm_medium=marquee&utm_campaign=traffic_source
"We'd expect the D780 to offer a slight upgrade over the D750 for Raw shooters, but one that's only really visible in comparison and that won't come close to justifying upgrading. "
no they have already given us too much and way more than we need....we can't keep up anymore, when it comes to focus speed or low light capabilities or both so when something new comes along our need list gets a lot shorter, the D5 is the perfect example, it may be close to done and as good as it gets, time will tellNo, we want greater improvement that the camera makers want to give us.
I think that most potential buyers will just consider automatic focus shifting a minor improvement. You and I consider it to be of importance but I'm afraid not many other people will.How does DPReview do a comparison of the two cameras and NOT mention that the D780 has focus shifting whereas the D750 doesn't? I guess click bait requires little thoroughness even among such reviews.
