    The Nikon D500 review camera fulfilled our expectations for a flagship APS-C DSLR camera and comes with most (if not all) the functions a serious enthusiast or professional photographer would require. Read more

    Replace me from the D7100 and talk about lifting. The D500 is much better at everything. ISO is light years better than on the D7100 and images in poorer lighting conditions are considerably better. Tiltable and partial touch screen, film in 4k. Same superb autofocus module as in D5, wifi, etc. Read more

    Very brilliant. Has a D4 too - this is just as fast, almost as good in handling and has even better autofocus (!) And almost the same safe professional feeling. The only thing I do not agree with is the mini-keysticks you put there, had been better with a programmable button instead. Read more

    Fantastic camera! Perhaps the best Nikon made, considering price, features and building quality. Roughs fast focus and serial shooting with modern touchscreen that is fast-blown. Perfect as a complement to full-size, as DX is perfect for tele and bird photographers. Read more

    Many Nikon DX DSLR users have been anxiously waiting on the next 'Top End' Cropped sensor Nikon DSLR since the D300S. The Nikon D500 certainly seems worth the wait! This camera is top of the line when it comes to Auto Focus which utilises this and several other attributes passed down from the latest... Read more
