Nikon D500 DSLR Camera with 16-80mm Lens
Key Features
  • 20.9MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • EXPEED 5 Image Processor
  • 3.2" 2,539k-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 4K UHD Video Recording at 30 fps
As the flagship model within Nikon's DX-format DSLR line, the D500 is characterized by its robust physical construction, apt imaging capabilities, and of course, a more compact, sleek form factor than its FX brethren. Revolving around a 20.9MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 5 image processor, this camera appeals to both still and video shooters with its fast 10 fps continuous shooting rate and 4K UHD video recording abilities. The sensor and processor also combine to avail a native sensitivity range up to ISO 51200, which can be further expanded to ISO 1640000 for working in dark and difficult lighting conditions. Benefitting the fast shooting performance, the D500 is also characterized by its expansive Multi-CAM 20K 153-point AF system, which features 99 cross-type points for fast performance and accurate subject tracking capabilities. While sleek in stature, the D500 is by no means slim on functionality and versatility.

Sqare Trade Protection Plan (STPP) for D500: Square Trade technicians are not trained by Nikon. How do they know how to fix problems with this complex, brand new camera? Talking to STPP representatives on the phone did not provide any answers. It's confidential I was told. What do others think of STPP?
Asked by: Chester
Square Trade is an excellent protective plan for electronic goods. Their repair service is highly esteemed by many customers.

What are the minimum specifications for the card(s) (both SD and XQD) in order for the camera to support 10 fps for 200 images?
Asked by: Mike
Thank you for the rapid responses … However, these two replies are somewhat contradictory. I do not currently own a D500 but I'm seriously considering acquiring one. (Hence I do not have the manual to peruse!) Both answers seem to make sense, but I do not see how both can be correct simultaneously. As I will probably purchase a D500 (waiting for Black Friday/Cyber Monday to see if I can get a better deal!) I'm trying to figure out what card(s) to buy with it and how to configure the camera to use them to best advantage. I LIKE the ability to use an SD card as a backup, but "Anonymous" indicates this will impair my ability to take 10 fps for 200 images. The answers are not likely to dissuade me from buying the D500, but is will likely influence my options on card selections and in-camera setup. Thanks

You can find the lens sold separately on the B&H site and find all the specs plus reviews there . I've been quite happy with mine (also bought as part of the D500 kit) and, to me at least, it seems to be quite a cut above the typical "kit lens."
