The Nikon D-500 has arrived!
 
I pre-ordered my Nikon D-500 months ago and it finally arrived on Tuesday. I have been really excited to shoot this camera because of all the hype it has been getting. I will say now, it lives up to the hype! I wanted a really fast focusing, high ISO with low noise camera, that could shoot for a long period without buffering. The D-500 will shoot 200 frames in RAW before it buffers. The D-500 is that and more! I have only done some limited testing so far but plan on being extremely familiar with it before I leave to go out west. The noise at 3200 ISO is better than anything I have shot previously at 800 ISO. I haven’t even tested the higher ISOs yet. I put the focusing on Zone, AF-C and the camera is lightning fast with the Tamron SP 150-600mm lens. This is going to be an incredible combination. On this day, it is the king of wildlife cameras. Canon, let’s see what you can do to dethrone it!
