The Nikon D750 just had a review published at Neocamera.This professional DSLR has a 24 megapixels full-frame CMOS sensor paired with a fast EXPEED 4 processor. Its autofocus system features Phase-Detect at 51 points and is sensitive down to -3 EV, making it one of the most sensitive AF systems around.

The D750 starts a new line of high-end DSLRs, one which is aimed at videographers and attempts to deliver high-quality for stills and video. It can capture the former at 6.5 FPS and the latter at full 1080p and up to 60 FPS. Just like its siblings, the D750 offers a 100% coverage viewfinder and fully weatherproof body. As a first for the family, it also includes a tilting 3.2″ LCD with 1.2 megapixels.
