I'm going to buy a new camera for stocks. I was considering A7RII. But I'm concerned about physical strength of the camera as I'm exposed to greater challenges due to my travel lifestyle. And A7RII doesn't seem to very robust.
I could buy cameras of a higher level such as D810 or Canon 5DSR, but dimensions of the camera are important for me as well, because I'm searching for a camera that will be always with me. Actually, I found out that A7RII is not much more compact then D750 when attached to the lenses.

I've almost decided to go with D750 but the last question left to clarify. I'm doing mostly portraits. How's focusing quality of D750? Focus points of Nikon look much bigger then the ones of Canon. And I'm worried that because of this sometimes camera might focus on the eyebrow instead of the eye itself.

Nikon users and anybody who has experience, I'd be really grateful for your advices :)

I use the D610, which has a lower-tier AF than the D750, and I find that the autofocusing works just fine. The D750 should be even better than the D610, and even has face-detect AF with "eye-priority."

I use the D750 too and it's a great cam. One thing there is worth to be noted. The focal points are located pretty much centrally in the display. I can work with it, but you should know it.

I tell you one thing. I used also all different kind of cameras.

Check out the Olympus OMD Em1 or Em5.

Robust like a tank and small enough :). And dont be afraid of the 4/3 sensor. Quality is amazing.

I have the Olympus OMD E-1 too - as well as three Nikons - and I love the little Olympus for travel. It is small super light and tough.

LOVE my D750. You can't go wrong with this camera! I had to adjust the focus settings when I first bought it to suit my situations.

I have an Oly EM1 and just love it! Went from a Canon 5d Mark II for it and no regrets after 2 years. I use it now and then for video as well and does better then expected.

I even have some feeling sometimes that a Olympus OMD makes stock even easier. Because of the crop factor and Olympus technology i have less problems with having subjects on focus and the same time separated from background. I feel that i have less work with Olympus to get photos stock proof. This is my experience.

What about lenses for Olympus EM1 or EM5? Is there a good choice, or would it accommodate Nikon/ third party lenses through adapters?

I'm looking into upgrading my cropped sensor Nikon into a better something (not ready for full frame yet), so far thinking about more advanced Nikon models like D7100 or 7200 which could use Nikon and Sigma lenses I already have, but also could consider anything else that is highly recommended for stocks and within similar budget..

Thanks (and sorry for hijacking the post a little bit:)

I've got the D7000....works well for me and from what I've heard the D7200 is a big step forward. I think if you are not pushing things like High ISO or wide apertures you don't really need top of the range cameras for most stock....though they are nice to have of course   ;).

There might be a new Pentax K1 with your name on it if you want a small robust weather sealed FF at a very reasonable price.

The Olympus has a wide range of lenses available and you can also use lenses made by for other micro 4/3rds cameras. I have an adapter that lets me use my old Zuiko lenses from my Olympus OM-1 film camera but I haven't looked into getting an adapter for my Nikon lenses so I'm not sure what is available. I have a 17mm (~35mm equivalent), a 25mm (50mm equivalent) and a 40-150mm zoom that was very inexpensive but is tack-sharp all the way to 150mm. Due to the crop factor each lens is equivalent to double - I use my old 200mm prime (~400mm) with the adapter and like that too.When I travel I can fit the camera and the three small lenses into a shoulder camera bag which is so easy!

Not to hijack the thread either but I'm curious if you can use a Nikon SB-600 flash unit on the OM-D E1?

Sounds good, thanks for this!

The D750 is small for a DSLR, but still professionally built and featured. Don't kid yourself. The d750 is far less portable than the Sony, Fuji and OMD stuff.

Get the D750 if focus speed and accuracy is something you wont compromise on.

If you're travelling a lot and want to always have a camera on you, I guarantee you will take more photos if you get one of the smaller options.

Pick your battles. There's not many pockets big enough to fit a d750.
