    Wow, so a-swim, lol! Given some of the responses here, maybe I should ask first, is moving from DX to FX really a good idea, or should I just stick to my D7200? I like it, am comfortable with it for the most part, but really struggle with it in lower light situations, which I seem to get into quite often. Thought a move to full-frame would help with this. If I make the switch, the D750 is priced at the point I could do it. If it won't represent an advancement over the D7200 and its dependability perhaps is iffy, should I just stick with what I have. Can't possibly afford a D850 or higher. I really want to go full frame, but... *sigh*

    Of the models currently available in DSLR format from Nikon. The D750 would be the best body for low light. The Nikon DF is rated higher for ISO but has the smaller 16mp full frame sensor. The D7200 is a very good body though. What lenses do you have? It may be a better move to just update your lenses. The D750 sensor is better in several ways. But it's not a huge difference in what you have in your D7200. ISO would be better but not a huge difference.

    Buy it from adorama, B&H or keh and you'll get a warranty and time to test it out, etc...

    When I had my D7000 DX and D600 FX there was a good 2 stop difference in exposures. Stuff that really made a difference in low light/waning light situations in regards to sports that a higher shutter speed is required. I recall making the same exposure settings inside the house testing both of their settings and then similar exposures. Quite interesting to see the differences.

    Also, several months ago before I bought my D500 (again) I did ISO tests of D7200, D500, D610, D810, and D5500 cameras. I think most of those are in my Flickr somewhere.

    Total non-issue if you but new from authorized dealer. Great camera. In the unlikely event you have an issue it will likely be apparently well within warrnanty and Nikon will fix for free. Another positive for going with Nikon vs. Another company with lesser or 3rd party support

    The 35mm is a pretty fast lens. Are you having troubles with it? And do you have a speedlight? It may be better to just get some external lighting. The D750 is probably only 2 stops better in low light than the D7200. I have seen reviews that infer this. But no actual experience myself.

    The kit lens is a basic do all lens. You might find 1 or 2 new lenses will help wth over all quality. But for low light. A flash just might be your best option, and least expensive one. And if your budget allows. One that can be used off the body (either Nikon wireless system, or wireless system of another company).

    As mentioned above
    If you can do what's required with your 35mm lens at that focal length (what I mean is though you are limited by the focal length, if the lens gives images that are satisfactory even in low light), then you need a few faster lenses than the kit.

    I have a d7200 and it is the best crop sensor camera I have used in low light (not saying the best, but the best I've used). I then bought the d610 and there is better image quality in low light. The d750 is like the d610 on steroids, better focus system and a few bells and whistles, though image quality should be very similar (read-only very good image quality)

    I tried to convince my GF to buy one but she kept insisting it had poor build quality, flappy back LCD and she hated the prosumer interface.
    There if there's anything down to say about the D750, that would be it. She also complained about the insufficient resolution, plastic body and the way the shutter sounded *LOL*

    Well, I’d tend to agree with her. The stupidest thing they did is giving the D750 the two line top display. Even the D7xxx and D600 have better top panels than the D750. The 750 also lights up the back screen any time you want to change the iso and there is no way to avoid it. Just seems like they very intentionally made the D750 a camera that true professionals wouldn’t want to use.

    Interesting remark

    I am a wedding and event photographer.
    I have been using my D750 for 3 years, it has been bullet proof reliable, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love the low light performance, I love the auto focus, the metering system, its in my view just a great camera for the money.
    I now added the Nikon D850 which I planned it to be my main camera and put the D750 as my secondary body.
    Well guess what, after shooting few weddings with both cameras my D750 has remained my MAIN camera and D850 as my second body.
    Did I mention I LOVE my D750 ?
    Its awesome, got nothing but good things to say about it, if you buy it I am sure you will love it too!!!
