Nikon’s long-awaited upgrade to its venerable D300s DX-format DSLR has finally arrived in the shape of the new Nikon D500. Announced alongside the flagship FX-format D5, the new Nikon D500 shares much of its bigger sibling’s advanced technology, but in a smaller, rugged, weather-sealed shell.
Tamron’s super-zoom series has seen several revamps over the years, but the latest iteration, the equivalent to a 24-450mm, is something of a pioneer. Read on to find out how well this class-leading new model performs.
Although it’s not a new lens by any stretch, we’ve taken a look at Sony’s DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM, a high-speed 24-75mm equivalent designed for the maker’s APS-C-format SLT cameras. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
As the equivalent to a 60mm on a full-frame camera, and with a 1:1 magnification focusing down to just 4.1 inches (15mm), the new 30mm macro looks perfect for normal shooting as well as for close-ups. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
Nikon’s latest flagship DX-format DSLR, the D7200, features a 24.2Mp APS-C image sensor and weather-resistant shell, as well as an improved autofocus and image buffer capabilities. Using the same or similar APS-C sensor previously tested in their D3300 entry-level and D5500 mid-range DSLRs, how will the scores from Nikon’s new top-end APS-C DSLR compare?
Besides being the first Nikon to feature a touchscreen LCD, the mid-range DX format Nikon D5500 is a mostly unremarkable update to the D3300, but as with that model, the performance of the 24-Mpix CMOS sensor really stands out. Read on to find out how well it performs.
Nikon has unveiled the D7200 as its new flagship DX-format DSLR, featuring a 24.2Mp APS-C image sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter. With a similar resolution and build to its predecessor, the D7100, the new Nikon D7200 comes with enhanced performance credentials thanks to its improved autofocus, image capture, and picture transfer features.
If you’re shooting Nikon DX and are after a single-lens solution for shooting a wide range of subjects, the new Tamron 16-300mm superzoom is certainly worth a look. Our technicians have been busy putting it through its paces in the lab, so let's take a look at its DxOMark Lens Score and see how it rates compared to the other options on the market.
The D7100 was classified as a "Semi-Pro" DSLR and yet the Pentax K3 has more useful features including full weather sealing and is considered by DXO an "Entry-level DSLR" camera. Please explain the rationale/criteria when classifying the cameras or do you folks arbitrarily bin products for no specific reason. Thanks
Sony A99 has a much higher score than the ISO that you specify
Your rating ISO is completely wrong! Sony A99 has a much higher score than the ISO, which you state your lab tests around the SLT are misleading and reflects micro differences eye and do not perceive the SLT greatly underestimated.
It seems someone painting on the same high ISO 7100 vs A99?
ISO 1600 at 7100 already in JPG visible noise, the A99 anything. ISO 3200 in 7100 noise is no more evident for A99 small changes ISO 6400 in 7100 image was far more noisy at A99 level as in 7100 iso 1600! ISO 12800 in 7100 to significantly increase noise compared to the A99, which is still applicable.
RAW same ...
You write and publish half-truths. The problem is that the A99 has LOW LIGHT-ISO 1550 but over 2000.
Anyone can look at the samples! and really looking to compare 1:1. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d7100/21
Re: Sony A99 has a much higher score than the ISO that you specify
Thanks for interest in DxOMark.
The DxOMark sensor score only evaluates RAW image quality on the sensor noise point of view. The comparison is a JPEG comparison, with a raw convertor that could have slight different behavior between the different cameras. The ISO lowlight score of the SLT A99 is pretty good and is a third stop better than the last Nikon D7100.
Upgrade from D7000 to D7100 not worth Upgrade from D7000 to D600 worth Upgrade from D90 to D7000 worth Upgrade from D90 to D7100 Totally worth Upgrade From D90 to D600 Totally Worth Upgrade From D300 to D600 Totally Worth Upgrade From D300s to D7100 Worth
if you have to choose between the d7000 or d7100 go for the d7100 if money is not a problem spend 800$ and get the d600 but if you wanna save 300$ and get a better lens get the d7000
It is not a must have upgrade for those who currently have a D7000 but, if you shoot a lot of video it becomes something you may well want to consider.
Apologies, Just a quick question... Have you taken the time to really examine the differences between the 7100 & 7000? Because your advise is inaccurate... There are huge differences between these 2 cameras!!! Giving it worthy consideration to an upgrade from a D7000.
Lets just Name a few advantages and differences of the d7100...
950x more shots per battery charge Around 10% larger screen & More than 30% higher resolution screen Combines multiple exposures to capture high dynamic range In the camera!! Capture around 50% more detail in your photos (Hmm Pretty big difference there!!) The D7100 has a slight edge (0.1 f-stops) in low noise, high ISO performance Significantly more cross-type focus points 15 vs 9 helps grab focus in difficult situations More focus points 51 to be exact opposed to 39 The 7100 is 10% lighter Added 1.3x Magnification @ 15-16mp!!! lmao ahh thats pretty big!! That helps me nearly double my focal length!!
Thats just to name a hand full, I can keep going!!
I tell you what, when DxO releases the official scores for lenses, coming soon btw, I will bet one of my D800's that you will retract that statement, and thank me for sending you out to go add one to your camera bag!!!
I'm not saying that the d7000 is better I'm just saying the upgrade to the d7100 is not worth for the money and if you dont own any i will say go for the d7000 because is better for the money you can buy better lens that will give better result,compare to the d7100 with the start kit lens
now tell me something would you get the d7100 if you own a d7000
What is better have better camera with standard lens or standard camera with better lens
Dude, DXO Mark are pro, every pro photographer appreciate and guide their choices on their tests, do you think they would deliberately downsize the mark of D7100? what in it for them? i believe that this test is right. Anyway, D7100 is a great camera with a good AF system and a great IQ even if it is worse than D600's IQ... which is a full frame camera.
After i bought D600 i was disappointed by the autofocus (on the paper, in real life works great, better than D7000's) and i wanted to buy the D800. I am happy i didnt. I am sure that in time you will really start to love the D7100 because it gives you everything you need to make great photos... if you are not a failure as a photographer :D
