Pros: auto focus system, ergonomics, built quality, viewfinder, 10 fps, huge buffer.

Cons: no built in flash, no U1, U2 setting modes

Opinion: Shooting fast moving action is real fun with this camera. It is ergonomic and normally you will not miss the momment. High ISO capability helps a lot when the light is not enough, and I could say that I miss built in flash only in very specific situations. I had the D7100 which was fine but D500 is something else.. way better ... addiction!!!. I suppose that I will keep it for a long time. (shooting is just a hobby for me, I am not a pro) .

Pros: > 10 frames per second > Very deep buffer > Deep sinus in grip for fingertips...deeper than other Nikon DSLR's I have used.> The D500 and D5 have the best Autofocus among all DSLR's

Cons: 1. Omission of pop-up flash (big mistake Nikon). there are photographers who are not buying this camera because of the omission of the pop up flash.2. Should have made ENTIRE body of magnesium alloy

Opinion: Nikon needs to re-design the circular connection for the right angle finder so that it is not necessary to screw it onto the body. This is a very tedious process. It needs to be redesigned. The tiltable LCD is a wonderful addition. But in certain background colors, I often do have problems seeing the single focusing square in the center of the LCD. You overlooked that fact that there are people with color vision deficiencies that have trouble with those wavelengths. Perhaps it should have been blue. Nikon....do not even think about omitting the right angle finders. I favor the right angle finder over the LCD in many situations. Robert King :)

Pros: AF, 10fps, Image quality, High ISO & more.

Cons: Nothing really.

Opinion: I bought this camera as a replacement of my D7000.I do bird photography mostly and this camera just rocks!AF speed and accuracy is amazing, specially when combined with pro lenses.I shoot and follow swifts in air with this thing.Group area AF is excellent.Then you got 10 fps, bursts forever, never wait for the camera buffer, just shoot and shoot (if you need to in the moment).Then image quality, great colors and metering, excellent recovery of highlights and shadows in RAW.High ISO is also very, very good for a DX camera.And more - joystick for selecting AF points works like a charm, you got ISO button on the right side, everything is controlled with one hand, finally!Plus you got video, swivel screen, superb resolution on the lcd screen, backlit buttons and more and more.I know I sound like I work for Nikon, but no - the camera is just this good!

Pros: All

Cons: Maybe the white balance, for me coming from Canon. It makes you want to have two... one is not enough; )

Pros: Handling, Robustness, File Quality, Autofocus Speed, Iso Sensitivity, Compactness

Cons: hard to find anything against

Opinion: Pretty much a monster for what's been thought. Really fast and reliable. I went from a D7100 to a D500 and although only 3 years old, the differences are monstrously visible. Quick, flawless autofocus, when paired with quality lenses, churns out professional photos. Although a D850 and a D3S are taken, which, however old it is, remains a flagship, the D500 is one of the very first machines I use in various situations. With several bodies available, it remains the first or maximum second choice for what I have to do. Super with telephoto lenses or supertele, with the Crop factor. Sensitivity is high. Photos with the D7100 I used about 2500 Iso, with the D500 arriving just at 640. I took pictures of 8000 and 10000 Iso and for an aps-c it's a lot of stuff and the material obtained is quietly workable in post. It's hard to find fault in my opinion. Maybe the price at the time of release Nital (about 2000) but after almost 4 years since its release is about 1500-1600, not nital even to 1300 and used on 900-1000. Very robust even though the display seemed fragile. Also being an aps-c the body is slightly smaller and lighter. After taking the D5 I found very similar files and I can declare it therefore a D5 in "miniature", 10 fps, fast processor, with XQD the buffer holds a lot, the Autofocus very fast covers the whole frame, which helps a lot. In sports and stock photos it is among the best if not the best excluding the D5. What to say. Money well spent. Having d5 d850 and d3s, it often turns out the VERY choice as I said, in fact in proportion to the time had, the d500 is second only to the D3S as use
