AWESOME! Like Nikon D750 on High Dose Steroids!
Received my Nikon D780 yesterday from Amazon. Great ergonomic grip. Lightweigt compared to my D5 and D850. I have previously owned the D750 and love the amazingly quick and accurate Auto-focus algorithm incorporated into the D780 from the high-end models! So nice to have the UHS-II speed available i...

The 8 Best Cameras - Spring 2022
The Nikon D780 is the best full-frame DSLR camera that we've tested. This enthusiast-grade DSLR is weather-sealed and feels very well-built. It's comfortable to shoot with thanks to its large textured handgrip, extensive physical controls, and intuitive menu system, which includes a ton of customization options, so you can set the camera's controls to suit your own shooting preferences

Nikon D780 Review
There's little question about the quality of the Nikon D780. It's a better camera than the D750, a body that's proven to be a workhorse for pros and hobbyists alike. If you've been waiting for an upgrade, this model offers a bit faster frame rate and slightly better autofocus, as well as an image sensor that's more modern, with superior clarity when pushing to higher ISO settings

Great Video Upgrade from the 750 but Tamron lenses....
I shot with the 750 (2 of them) for 5 years and in the past 3 years have really felt the need for better video features. I was about to trade them in for z6's but then the 780 was announced and due to some lens incompatibility (I have 2 Tamron G1 lenses I really like) I decided to delay a full switc...

Shipping problems with UPS
Awesome camera. I put it to use the next day but not able to use Lightroom until Adobe performs an upgrade. My only problem is it was not shipped via Amazon but UPS. I was not home and would have to pay $5 to have it re-delivered OR I could go to the city next to me to pick it up at a UPS store. But...

No battery grip available.
Loved the camera but when I found out that they did not make a battery grip for it, I had to immediately send it back. The battery grip from previous models does not fit.... I've read on blogs that they do not plan to make one which seemed really odd but I couldn't find one and don't have the time t...

Nikon D780 Hands-On Review
You know, i think you hit it. No, if you are an existing f-mode user and you have a lot of f-mount lenses, you certainly have the f-mount built into this camera here now you do get the adapter for free, quite often with the z6 yeah, but it's one of those things we're in this Serious state of transition, i think this is just another stepping stone to get you into mirrorless. Yes, what i'd really like to know is if there are any die hard, dslr users? Maybe you have a bunch of f mount lenses and you don't want to necessarily go mirrorless yet
