Still no problem with my D750.
Select Mup (mirror up) - select.
No electronic shutter. See note below.
Wireless shutter release - check
Focus peaking (of a kind) - check.
Heavy! Vibrate it if you can - check.
Note: I'm not keen on electronic shutters. They can lead to image
distortion with action shots and they are reputed to shorten the life
of the sensor.
