It did add group-area autofocus to the AF-area options, which is great.

D7500 is that bit quicker at 8fps. That's not the whole story, as the D7500's bigger buffer will allow you to continue shooting at this faster rate for 50 shots (that's uncompressed 14-bit raw files as well).

D7500 produces excellent images. Colors are rendered accurately and can be tweaked according to your personal preferences using the camera's Picture Control.

The slightly narrower monocoque chassis makes for a deeper grip, which is good news for those of us with larger hands.

A faster capture rate with a large shooting buffer

The weight, balance, and feel of build of the D7500 are very good, unlike some lower-priced DSLRs that have a plastic look and demeanor.

The images always look great. In competent hands, they're always sharp and in-focus with great colors and exposure.
- Ken Rockwell
The D7500’s optical viewfinder is very good. It uses a proper pentaprism design rather than a cheaper ‘pentamirror’, and offers 100% coverage.

What experts didn't like
It has only one card slot

The one downside is the dip in screen resolution, with the D7500's 922,000-dot resolution not quite a match for the D7200's 1,299,000 dots.

The bad news is that continuous AF isn't as smooth as we'd hoped (AF is so fast and accurate in still-image shooting that we anticipated the same for video).

While some users may point to the lower resolution (20.9MP compared to 24MP) as a drawback, the reality is that the real-world difference is minimal at most.

App is weak
