This camera takes great pictures and video, it?s an enthusiast camera with pro body features borrowed from the D810 and D4s. High ISO photos have little grain at 10000 and files are clean at 6400. The dynamic range is outstanding like most new Nikon cameras.
The autofocus with it's new 51 point system having 15 cross type is great and the camera focuses pretty good in dim light situations, however I wish it had a similar autofocus system like the Canon 5D Mark III with 61 points 41 cross or the 65 all cross of Canon 7D Mark II. The autofocus area could have also been more spread-out and not clustered in the center of the viewfinder for better edge of the frame tracking.
About the grip yes it is narrower and deeper,some may like it some may not however when carrying a 70-200mm mounted for hours your middle finger can be sore from the weight pressing down at this point when holding the camera.
Now to address the flare issue, which I think has been blown out of proportion especially when the D600 oily sensor issue is still fresh in the minds of many. Nikon has acknowledged this issue on some of the cameras and have taken steps to correct this so one should not worry.
The flare is hard to duplicate,certain conditions light source and angle of shot has to be present to recreate this issue. Most will never encounter this in their everyday photography and this issue has also been found in other cameras like the pro Canon 1DX.

One has to understand that modern DSLR's are electronic marvels and in the battle and race to produce newer and better cameras for the consumer,the top brands employ new technologies and ways to manufacture so that they can get it to market ASAP. That being said,you can have an excellent camera coming out with issues,for instance the Nikon D800 early autofocus issue or the Canon 5D Mark III leaking light into the sensor area from the top LCD, this does not make them bad cameras.
All cameras have their pro and cons,some cons of the D750 is a maximum shutter speed of only 1/4000 making it difficult if you use an f/2.8 lens wide open in strong daylight,also it has a slower flash sync speed as well only 1/200.
Ultimately the choice is yours and it?s always good to research the camera that you are interested in and judge if it fits within your style of photography and will give you the results that you expect.
That being said I would still recommend the Nikon D750 as a welcome addition to the Nikon FX lineup.
