    This isn’t helping me decide between the 810 or 750.

      If I got to choose between a D810 and a D740, I’d take the D810.

      i meant D750

      Thanks Nick. I have a D800 which is why I’m undecided on the next camera. The only reason I’m thinking about the D750 is I like the articulating screen and the ergonomics. If it had the 10 pin connector this would be easier. I’ll more than likely choose the D810. I’m just waiting for a few real world reviews from new owners of the D750.

      Chuck, what type of stuff do you shoot, and where would you like to go go with it? Professionally, or as a hobby? The decision between the D750 and D810 should only be a tough one for a select few folks, really… :-)

      Matt, I wish I knew where I was going with photography. I love so many different types. I’m really enjoying Night Astro/Landscape. I love shooting action, specifically Motocross. I like documentary shooting of events. I’ve played with portraits. I wish I could settle down and choose one area to actually get better. I have pretty much all the glass I need. I’ve been shooting for about 5 years and maybe at some point I can actually make this a second profession.

      Thanks for replying, Chuck! Here’s my assessment…

      Astro-landscapes -> Nikon D750 wins, but D800e / D810 also acceptable. However I’ve become quite spoiled by an articulated LCD screen for astro-landscapes and general landscapes, I always find myself going for tough angles and it’s soooo much more convenient! That, plus the ISO improvements, lighter weight, oldschool “bulb” mode for long exposures without a remote, etc. etc.

      Motocross -> D750 wins, D800/e almost un-acceptable, D810 barely acceptable
      (Although a D400 would make a truly awesome telephoto action camera, for sure!)

      Documentary event shooting & portraiture -> D750 wins, for low-light image quality and AF capability. Only drawback being lack of PC sync port and lower flash sync speed, however next gen wireless flashes are going to obsolete both of those features very quickly, IMO.

      So, there you have it. Honestly I’m even a full-time pro wedding shooter, who enjoys astro-landscapes on the side, and I’m strongly considering the D750 as a consolidation to THREE of my current Nikon bodies, as well as another that I was previously coveting. (My D800e, D700 backup, and lightweight D5300 could all be replaced by the D750, and if the D750’s ISO is good enough, I won’t have to get a Df for astro-landscape timealpses either!)

      So, in short, think about the minor drawbacks of the D750. If you think you can put up with / accept those drawbacks, then the D750 immediately becomes one of the best jack-of-all-trades cameras ever made. :-)

      Thanks for the reply Matt. I’m just waiting to see some real world reviews from people that purchased the D750. Your points are valid and I have considered them. I have a D4 for action/motocross but thought the D750 might work as a backup. Of course the D800 is a great for portraits, events, landscape, and such. So, the D810 with it’s new bells and whistles is an obvious choice as a backup there. It really boils down to which I tend to do more of. The tilting screen believe it or not is still an option I think I favor. All that said, I’m leaning toward the D750 now. Not to mention it leaves me enough room to purchase the Sigma 50 Art.

    I was hoping there would also be a review on the 20mm 1.8 lens
