Nikon D7200 DSLR camera becomes official and replaces the D7100 with several improvements including better low-light AF system and increased buffer depth.
To see the difference between Nikon D7200 vs Canon 7D Mark II digital SLR cameras we have put together Nikon D7200 vs Canon 7D Mark II specs comparison table below.
Nikon D7200 provides a slightly improved 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter powered by an EXPEED 4 image processor and comes with next-generation 51-point AF module with increased low-light sensitivity. The D7200 comes with built-in Wi-Fi with NFC and an improved 100-shot buffer depth when shooting JPEGs at 6 fps (18 14-bit or 27 12-bit Raw files).
Canon 7D Mark II features a 20.2MP CMOS sensor, Dual Digic 6 processors, next-generation Dual Pixel AF, 65 all cross-type points, 10fps max burst speed, max ISO of 16000 and built-in GPS. You can download the Instruction Manual and the AF-Setting Guide Book.
Below you can see the specs comparison table of Nikon D7200 vs Canon 7D Mark II DSLR cameras. Some differences like sensor, image size, shooting speed, lcd size etc.. detailed as bold on the table.

From the specs list comparison above, it’s clear that the Canon 7D Mark II is a higher-grade camera than the Nikon D7200. That’s why these cameras have $600 price difference.
The high-end DX-format camera, long-rumored Nikon D400 might be the real competitor to the 7D Mark II. If we see those days the price of the Nikon D400 will probably stand the same price as the 7D Mark II.
The main difference between the Nikon D7200 vs Canon 7D Mark II is the continuous shooting speed. The 7D Mark II has a faster 10 fps and the D7200 has 6 fps. For the buffer size comparison you fill the buffer on 7D Mark II with 31 RAW images and on D7200 you can shoot 18 RAW images.
Finally we can say the Nikon D7200 is not a direct competitor against the Canon’s 7D Mark II, and there is still room for a high-end Nikon DX DSLR. If Nikon puts a large buffer with 10 fps continuous shooting speed than it will sure be interesting to see how it will compare to the 7D Mark II.
