After reading all the hype surrounding the D500 I have had the itch to get one since they came out. Well I finally found a nice used one that fit my budget and it came with plenty of extras.
Most of you that will respond to this know that I shoot a lot of aircraft. After several days of bad weather I was finally able to get out and give it a good workout. As part of my workflow I will adjust lighting and crop and straighten most of my photos, and did this with my first shots with the D500. My assumption was that with the smaller sensor I would fill it more efficiently and need less cropping, which was true.
Now comes the rub ...I would assume with a higher pixel count in the usable frame, compared to my D750, that I would have a bit more resolution once all the cropping was done.
Surprise ... My good Ol D750 actually produces slightly better pictures when cropped. My assumption has been smashed. The D500 is a fantastic camera in all respects but my D750 is still very capable of holding its own.
Now I will have to wait for the D850 to step up my game.
