- New York Times Wirecutter
The Nikon D750 delivers the best photo quality and continuous-shooting performance in its price class, along with a nicely well-rounded feature set.

The D750's greatest strength looks to be in its low-light performance.
- The Verge

Nikon has used a monocoque construction for the D750 and by using a combination of magnesium alloy and carbon fibre has given it a good solid feel without excessive weight.

We saw improvement in our low-light focus test; the D750 locked onto a target in an average of 0.7-second in very dim light, while the D810 required just under a second to do the same.

Our D750 review kit came with the body and 24-120mm lens. You also get a rubber eyecup for the viewfinder, various caps, a strap, that potent battery, and a plug-in charger.

Aside from lenses and external flashes, one of the most popular D750 accessories will be its pricey MB-D16 grip. The grip can hold another EN-EL15 or six AA batteries (with included adapter) and also has additional controls for portrait shooting.

The Nikon D750 yields very impressive results at different ISO levels. Noise is practically non-existent from ISO 100 to 1600 and we only see traces of noise start to appear at ISO 3200 and above.
- Photography Life
Thanks to the built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) connectivity feature, Nikon D750 lets you transfer your photos directly to compatible devices without any physical connection. One other feature that we like is the ability to use our smartphone as a remote to control our D750.
- Camera Decision
While certainly not as durable or weather-resistant as the D4S, which is a veritable tank of a camera, the D750 is gasketed and sealed to prevent dust and moisture and the shutter is rated at a respectable 150,000 cycle.

The lower weight has mainly to do with the body material - the Nikon D750 has a monocoque body shell whose rear and top plates are made of metal but the front plate is carbon fibre. That doesn't make it any less sturdy - in fact, the D750 boasts the exact same level of weatherproofing as the D810.

Excellent 24MP full-frame sensor.
- Tech Spot
Nikon bodies, the main focus is on composing your shot, as the only controls you can easily access with your right hand are aperture, shutter speed, AF/AE lock, and the shutter button.

What experts didn't like
Nikon's Wi-Fi implementation is weak and some of the other features could be executed a little better.
- CNET

Shutter speed limited to 1/4000 sec.

Missing from the D750 is the Split-Screen Display Zoom mode in Live View mode.

Sure, there are a few issues like a top shutter speed of 1/4,000th of a second instead of the 1/8,000 of many high-end cameras.

A complex camera with a steep learning curves for beginners

Where the D750 lacks and could have been clearly better is in the buffer capacity department.
- Photography Life
Nikon D750 doesn't have a sensor based image stabilization system but 55 of these lenses already comes with Optical Image Stabilization.
- Camera Decision
Also, sometimes menu functions would sometimes take an extra split second to register after pressing a button, which can get aggravating when you’re in a hurry.

Misses some manual control features of the D810.
- Tech Spot
The one issue we came across–as it is on most Nikons–is the white balance accuracy. The D750 has done little to nothing to improve the poor auto white balance system, which continues to struggle in mixed or fluorescent lighting.
