Top 5 Latest arrivals on Nikon DSLR cameras of 2016

As and eager beginning photographer I'm following trends on new camera releases regularly, although proud owner of a Canon manufactured camera, I decided to take a look on what's new from Nikon in 2016.

Just recently Nikon released  D500 flagship DX camera which seems a great rival to Canon 7D Mark II model, I believe more pro  photographers this year will upgrade their camera bodies to Nikon D500.

Another Nikon D5500 digital SLR camera definitely is a great camera for beginner (like me) photographers, although speaking of me - I'm looking upgrade my DSLR to full frame camera, probably at the end of this year (probably I will go for Canon, because of existing lenses). 

There is a great bundle package available for beginner photographers on Amazon for Nikon D3200 18-55mm and 55-200mm VR DX Zoom Lenses (here is an article of focal length comparison: Understanding focal length: Testing 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses)

And of course there is a Nikon Full Frame (FX-Format) D5 20.8 mega pixels camera which is just mind blowing for such an entry photographer as me, not to mention its price - well above $6,000
