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. 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: Fast machine, with an autofocus that in my opinion borders on perfection.

Cons: held at high ISOs above 6400

Opinion: I have to be honest, I wanted to replace the D750, as it was devaluing in anticipation of exit new model and I wanted a worthy replacement to match the D850. At first I was hesitant and undecided, seeing some mixed reviews, but I cut off the bull's head and bought it. In addition to the landscape and study photos for which I use the D850, I often do services for roller skating sports and I have to say that this D500 is really a portport. The first test shots I made them at a water polo competition with a Tamron 100-400 and I was really impressed, the burst shot is tremendous, the autofocus nails the action and all the photos are not excluded. It won't have the dynamic range and resolution of the 850, but gentlemen if you need a fast camera, with an autofocus that doesn't miss one, for quick photos, sports, birdlife and more, you will also landscape and ceremonies, it will love at first sight. I exaggerate, no, this is the best reflex dslr aspc camera ever.

Pros: ergonomics, AF, burst, buffer, hold high iso, 4k video, double slot (XQD-sd)

Cons: Battery life

Opinion: Perfect camera for naturalistic bird photography: it has a really fast and precise AF that, combined with a barrage of fear (I use it with XQD), allows you to capture every moment. I had a d7100, good car, but too slow for the photograph from the shed ! It holds up to 2500/3200 iso well, in good light conditions and with subjects not too far apart (I have not yet tested it in the dark for astronomical photography, nor for other types of photos). Even in suboptimal light conditions (clouds), it defends itself very well, for the possibility of dare a little more with iso than other mid-high-end apsc. All the controls are in the right place and with a bit of habit you can change many settings without taking the eye off the viewfinder. It is definitely a reflex that requires knowledge of the functions it has (see, for example, the AF), because it offers several possibilities ! The only downside is battery life. With the d7100 I forgot to load it, while the d500 is limited, in my case, to 400/500 shots, despite having the airplane mode activated. I have not tested the connection with the mobile phone, a bit because I prefer to preserve the battery to take photos, a bit because it is not something that attracts me (at least at the moment). The ability to make 4k videos is a great added value. I recommend it to those who take photography to birdlife : better, in that price range, there is no !
