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: Speed, precision and sensitivity of the AF, burst, buffer, XQD-SD, construction, high iso yield, configurability

Cons: Battery life

Opinion: A real war machine for action photos (sport or nature), a miniature flagship. Constructively speaking is excellent and evidenced by any criticism: completely tropicalized, all in all light, ergonomically perfect. Extremely configurable, both in terms of keys and in terms of the performance of the AF. The latter is the same module mounted on the D5 and is simply perfect in everything: speed and precision in the hook, ability to follow the subject, sensitivity in situations of low light. At the burst and buffer level we are back at the top: the frames per second are 10 and, using the XQD cards, the buffer has basically no limits (only after 20 uninterrupted seconds the shooting cadence drops so as not to strain the mirror mechanism too much but just leave the shutter button for a moment and you can resume). In terms of image quality we are clearly not at the level of modern FF machines, but I have not found APS-C bodies with better performance: at high iso the yield remains very valid (excellent considering the reduced sensor) and exposing correctly you can use without major problems even at 12,800 iso. The look in which he excels, about the high iso, it is the chromatic seal: the noise is clearly present but the rendering of the colors is not affected and the final yield of the file is superior even to that of full frame bodies of a previous generation (I also have a D700 and up to 3,200 iso I prefer it as noise to the D500 but exceeded 3200 absolutely not because doing so means finding washed-out and dominant colors that make the file very lower what you get at the same sensitivity with the D500). Flawless machine? Almost. The only one I personally find is the battery life: it's really "energetic". With a battery normally travel around 6-700 shots, no more, a longer lifespan than reflex. It is not an insurmountable defect, in the end it resolves with one or two spare batteries (strictly original Nikon, the D500 disdains the compatible, I do not know there are fully compatible!), but it is right to report it. In this regard two notes: the first is that in situations where I use the gust the problem feels less and the shots pass abundantly the 1,000, the second is that with some lenses I noticed that the battery lasts much less than with others, from what I read it seems to depend on the management of the eventual stabilizer in the lens that in some cases remains active for much longer than due (in my case with the Sigma 24-105 the battery lasts hard definitely less than with the Nikon 18-200).

Pros: Autofocus, ergonomics, speed, balanced sensor

Cons: iso estate

Opinion: I nikon since I was in bands my mom has always and only had nikon, the never before reflex is a d200 bought used to then switch to d90-d300s and d610 that I have today and I'm very happy, a few months ago I decided to join the FF the d500 and I'm super happy but I absolutely have to debunk those who say hold well to the high iso is a great and performing sensor but personally for the quality I want in the photos I never go beyond 2000 iso, the noise is clearly visible already at 800 iso, unparalleled to a FF but surely you can reduce the noise in the post. That said, it's an exceptional reflex!!!
