The Nikon D7500 has a redesigned body compared to its predecessor's. Gone are the D7200's magnesium-alloy top and rear panels. The D7500's new monocoque carbon fiber composite body has a deeper grip and includes "comprehensive" weather sealing. As a result, the camera is 5% lighter than the D7200 and is also slimmer and a bit shorter. Its dimensions are 5.3 x 4.1 x 2.9 inches (135.5 x 104 x 72.5 millimeters), and it weighs 22.6 ounces (640 grams) body-only. The D7200's dimensions are 5.3 x 4.2 x 3.0 inches (135.5 x 106.5 x 76mm) with a body-only weight of 23.8 oz or 676g.
Probably the most obvious difference between the cameras will be in their size and weight. Although the Nikon Z50 has a partial magnesium alloy body (like the old D7200) and only looks a bit smaller than the D7500, it weighs about HALF as much (54%, to be precise). This makes the Z50 an excellent camera for travelers, hikers, and street photographers who want to be discreet and lightweight.
What's the current smallest Nikon dSLR and lens?I have an old Canon EOS600D and with Canon's 24mm f/2.8, it's not exactly pocketable but it's almost "forget it's around your neck" territory, and there are newer Canon bodies that are way smaller than my 600D. I really enjoy that set-up. I don't know your Nikon model and what you might have to sacrifice in high-end functionality, for a more compact size (usually the smaller models are a bit more entry-level, so you may not get the same frame rate or multipoint AF etc)Something worth pondering. Even outside of Nikon (I only mention them in the first line as I assume you could just keep all your current kit, or just sell the body if you like that 35mm lens already...)
Sony - I will look into it. Thanks, wasn't really on my radar. Might need to look at A6100 depending on budget but seems that focus system is broadly similar. Will keep an eye out good deals body-only. Why the Sigma over the Sony prime? The Sony lens is more expensive but a touch smaller? Is the image quality of the Sigma better? 041b061a72
