Nikon the hibernating bear, hearing the twitter of little mirrorlesses from
high in the trees, adds a flip-up screen
Hey Nikonians, I know you're out there.
Given how much dismay I heard during the many years of the APS-C eclipse at Nikon, and the dimming of hopes for the return of the long-orphaned D300s, the D500 seems to have slipped into the water like an Olympic high-diver, i.e., without much splash. What's the love like?
Not a lot of talk. Is it because it's bigger and heavier than, and the same price as, the D750?
The advantages of the D500 seem to be razor-sharp responsiveness, especially in AF, a generous viewfinder (I'd be the judge of that), an ungodly high frame rate, and high DR at high ISOs, which is a capability that pros would nod their heads over but casual consumers might not even get.
It's selling well. To whom, and how come? And are people liking it?
P.S. If I got any Nikon right now I would head right for the D7200, I think. Sometimes it seems Nikon is like BMW...I know they've kind of lost their way, I know they aren't what they used to be, yet I can't stop paying attention.
