      This only really matters, if you shoot JPEG and go from SD Card direct to publishing, for anyone who 'should' be shooting on this they aren't going to really care. But most who 'ought to' be buying this camera will probably already know these.

    "VR Lens" does this mean it can shoot virtual reality footage?

    •  

      No, it means Vibration Reduction, the name was coined before VR was really a thing.

        Yes and no, virtual reality has been touted since the 70's really and was coined many years before.

        •  

          before VR was really a thing.

          Well yes VR has existed as such for a lot longer, but it wasn't enough of a thing to be the only meaning of VR, so Vibration Reduction isn't unreasonable.

    I've heard this before, it's a very generalised comment and really doesn't matter all that much anyway. If you're going to buy a camera like this you should shoot in RAW most of the time and learn how to do some basic postprocessing at least.

    The D750 is quite often touted as the best in its class.

    Edit- Oops, stuffed up the reply button.

      Spot on, anyone who should be buying this camera should be shooting in raw and should be doing a little post processing to get things right.

    Not an awful price but can be had for a little bit less, with a better 24-120mm lens for a little bit less, here. Although not sure if grey market or not.

      Yep, 18% grey. From cccwarehouse.com.au:
      "This Product is a brand new international model imported directly from international distributors. The product packaging may differ slightly between different countries retailer stock. Also for brands without international warranty and support, full sellers warranty will apply."

      Upper range from 85 up to 120 as against F going from 3.5 to 4 as against local waranty… One reviewer who has tried both answered a query here:

      https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/50641321.

      IF I were moving up to FX, I'd stick with the lighter 25-85, as I have an older manual micro-nikkor 105mm/F2:8 AI-s to cover around that range, available quite cheaply as there were plenty made.

  •  

    I would say this is too much to pay for what this package has to offer? the camera is getting long in the tooth, and buying the likes of 6d with a lens separately would be a better value for money?

    •  

      6D Mark II body only isn't much cheaper, but even though the D750 is an "older" model, it's still the better camera.

      •  

        why is it better? I never wanted to touch Nikon so I am curious about what I am missing. I read tge head to head comparison but they seem to be on par pretty much.

        •  

          They're pretty much on par if you consider price too, however the D750 wins for image quality and shooting performance.

          On paper the 6D Mk2 appears to be better if you're looking at the basic "technical specs" (sensor size, iso range, etc), but when you actually look at the performance, the d750 wins. It has better low light performance, better dynamic range, better colour depth, much better AF performance, more focal points, etc.

          If you already had a 6D, it's probably not worth your while to upgrade (unless you really like throwing money away), but if you had a choice and weren't set on a specific system (Nikon vs Canon vs Sony, etc), the D750 is the better choice.

    Diehard Nikon fan here - but swapped over to sony. Comparing to A7iii and the FE series glass it's bloody hard to recommend Nikon over Sony.

    •  

      Problem with Sony is they are bloody expensive both in Bodies and Glass. While I agree for the most part Sony are just as good if not slightly better (I'd say it's in the range of personal preference) but Nikon are quite a bit cheaper across the board. Also a big part of the reason Nikon 'aren't as good' is their processing isn't as good as Canon or Sony but if you're processing your images it's pretty negligible.

      •  

        Agree the glass is exyyyyy but a7iii has been on offer for sub 2k before from aus retailers. If I hadnt dumped so much into Nikon glass I would have dropped nikon completely.

    I bought this last year in Nov. Amazing camera, feels so good in hands. Just a tip ; Wait for 20% ebay deals and it can be had for $1700-2000 then pair it with quality optics like Sigma Art or Tamron G2 lens.

    •  

      Problem with ebay deals is typically you have no warranties.

      •  

        Here's one for $2k after 20% eBay coupon and comes with warranty.

        I don't know why someone downvoted him, they can be had for around that price brand new with warranty on eBay and better off paired with some decent glass for that awesome sensor even if it's a few more dollars than the kit lens deal here.
