    Professional, solid, mature performance, untouchable for the price, not a starter kit..

    Posted by NikonHappy on February 16, 2020

    After 14 years using Nikon DX bodies,D70, D90, D7000 I was ready for an upgrade. The sensor produces sharp images with gorgeous colors and high ISO performance ,amazing auto focus and metering make this a game changer for me.I do a lot of event type photography and those key features allow me to see opportunities and make images faster then before with a high percentage of keepers. The weather sealing and pro construction means I can take it outside too. The viewfinder is the best I´ve ever used and the pivoting touch screen display is very useful. The control layout allows for a lot of customization and will be familiar to any Nikon shooter.

    Best camera I´ve ever owned!!!!!

    Posted by Snapshot29841 on February 10, 2020

    I have owned three other Nikon´s before this one and although I have always been pleased I must say the D500 is the Cadillac I have never owned before. It has all the bells and whistles of the D5 at a fraction of the cost. I cannot imagine Nikon ever topping this one camera. It is a pleasure to use.

    Great camera

    Posted by JackDad on February 7, 2020

    I like my D500. I do not like the fact that Snapbridge doesn´t work. Consider how connective your phone and computer are and its a wonder that anyone would produce connectivity software today that doesn´t work - thus not 5 but 4 stars.
    Other than that it´s a great camera. I use it for bird photography and have gotten some real wall-hanger landscapes. Overall an excellent camera. I have read a review here that RAW NEFs from this camera can not be processed. ???? I´ve been processing them since day one. Probably put 20,000 RAW NEFs through the camera with no problem. I use Lightroom and Photoshop for processing.

    Really APS-C Beast

    Posted by Amahdi on January 19, 2020

    D500 is one of the Nikon flagship Camera. Amazing features and build quality. I Had the D5 before which i miss but not when I get the D500. Its really impressive to have D5 features in less expensive (without compromising quality). The added benefit of the D500 , there is no low pass filter. Love it.

    I have owned and used a Nikon D300 since 2007; purchased shortly after its release. I was happy with the D300, but wished for better resolution and improved exposure and focus control. I considered purchasing a full-frame Nikon, but after much research decided the D500 would meet my needs. And, it has!
    Pros: Excellent resolution, exposure and focus
    Cons: Still a bit heavy
    I purchased the D500 as a kit including the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR Lens. This is an excellent camera/lens combo.

    Just what I needed!

    Posted by EyeGuy on December 28, 2019

    Upgraded from a D60 to this camera. Like going from a scooter to a Ferrari! Familiar Nikon format and controls (but a lot more of them), faster, brighter, and a whole lot more capable.

    I am so in love with this camera! I upgraded from a D7000 after 4 years, and this camera is light years ahead of what I thought was suiting me just fine. But wow. The focus rate, the buffering, the fps - just these features alone take the D500 over the top for me. I´m a hobbyist photographer, and I have now found a new love for my hobby. Birding is a new venture for me, and I´m loving the shots I´m able to capture given the faster focus and fps. It has an incredibly solid build and just feels good in my hands. The ISO capabilities are phenomenal as well. Anyone who says a DX format camera isn´t a ´´serious´´ camera has never tried the D500. Absolutely stunning performance!

    Great DX Body

    Posted by HappyNikonOldtimer on December 23, 2019

    I have been very impressed with the build quality, high ISO noise levels, and the AF speed. I have had Nikon cameras since the 1970´s and DSLR´s since the D70 was released and currently have an older D7100 and a FX D750. My D7100 has a fairly high shutter count and has served me well but I wanted a great DX replacement. I take a lot of Bird and Flying aircraft photos with a 200-500 f/5.6 so a high quality DX sensor gives me just that little extra reach. I also wanted a body that is not afraid of the Louisiana weather and needed a camera that had better low light ISO than the D7100 so the D500 hit all those spot. The learning curve was no issue since I have both the D7100 and a D750 and the performance of the D500 was well beyond my expectations. I love it.
