New early reports on Nikon Rumors suggest that the Nikon D7200 will inherit many features from the Nikon D750 including a similarly styled body complete with a rotating screen. Supposedly the high-end APS-C body will also include built-in Wi-Fi, which suggests it will also be made with a carbon composite front plate like the D750 rather than a fully magnesium build like the two previous models. For what it’s worth, my time with Nikon’s recent full-frame DSLR proved this plastic front was tough enough to stand up to all my roughhousing.
As for the underlying tech, the D7200 will purportedly feature a 24MP sensor paired with Nikon’s latest Expeed 4 processor. The autofocus system will also supposedly be similar to that of the D750, except remodeled into a DX variant labeled the MultiCAM 3500DX2 autofocus system but still keep to 51 AF points.
Burst shooting is rumored to keep to a moderate 6fps while the buffer will be able to handle 16 RAW+JPG files consecutively. This leaves plenty of room for a new D300s level professional sports shooting camera to compete with the likes of the recently updated Canon 7D Mk II.
There’s no word on a possible release or announcement window, but with CES coming in a few weeks we’re hoping to see it first in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for more and check past the break for more rumored Nikon D7200 specifications.
