Will I re­gret not go­ing the ex­tra mile and buy­ing the D500?

You might, but you need to be clear what the ex­tra cash is get­ting you – an­other 2fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing speed, an even larger mem­ory buf­fer and Nikon’s lat­est high-tech 153-point aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem. The D500 is also built like a tank and uses Nikon’s pro­fes­sional con­trol lay­out, and is slightly more re­spon­sive. The D500 has twin mem­ory cards slots (1 SD, 1 XQD) whereas the D7500 only has one, and although its LCD is the same size, it has more than twice the res­o­lu­tion. You’re pay­ing a lot more money and you’re get­ting a lot more cam­era, but the D500’s ad­van­tages are all geared to the rough and tum­ble of a se­ri­ous ac­tion pho­tog­ra­pher’s life­style.

The bot­tom line: The D500 is worth the ex­tra only for sports fans and pros look­ing for a sec­ond, speedy DX-for­mat body.
