    A crop sensor camera with lighted buttons! That's advancement!

    Things the D500 has that the D5 doesn't:
    30min of 4K UHD recording (the D5 only records 3min)
    3-axis electronic image stabilization (in video mode)
    Flicker reduction function for still images (for Mercury and fluorescent lights, D5 only does this for movies)
    Tilting touch screen (D5 has only touch, and can't take photos during live view with a touch)
    One SD, one XQD slot
    Focus points almost completely cover the screen

    you forgot the one biggest difference, a DX sensor ;)

    Should I return my D810? And hold off until it's predecessor becomes announced. [-O< It seems like my camera just aged within the last two days.
    The predecessor to the D810, is the D800. It was already announced :P
    I don't think a D810 successor is in the cards for 2016

    The D5 has a DX sensor, but it's a measly 12MP ;)
    We should say it has a 20MP DX sensor, and the D5 doesn't :))

    I'm like Lester Crest over here, the meds have me messed up. But seriously now you will have a pro body and a somewhat mid range dx camera offering a faster processing engine,better AF, and UHD. Here's my new D810 sporting 1080p,51 point AF, no wifi, no touch screen, no xqd I don't know lucy a newer model seems to be coming down the road. I would hate to loose money on something I worked hard to save for and it's already becoming outdated just saying.

    Shut up and take my money !

    Actually, the thing I am most looking forwards too is Thom shutting up about the d400/500.

    No mention of full metal chassis/body, and the exploded view shows only the top, back and lens mount cover as shiny pieces. Looks likely to share the same construction as the D750, and they both weight about the same. D500's wet weight is the same as the D300s' dry weight.

    its possible... the D800 was announced a month after the D4

    and, lol, yes the D500 has a superior DX sensor :D

    If you need FX, you need FX, they're kind of different cameras. Do you really need 10 fps? The bluetooth connectivity is nice, but you don't necessarily need that to take better photos, it's just easier to share. The 4K is nice, but that's at 2x DX crop, so wide angle stuff won't work.

    Personally, the video stuff I don't care about, so it's not too important for me to upgrade. I'd like to see the D7300 actually inherit most of its features, as I'd like to have the bluetooth but not the weight of a D500.

    All the features this camera has will migrate to the next D820 for sure anyway. You can't keep chasing electronics, you upgrade every 2nd generation with camera bodies. Besides, you probably got photos you couldn't have gotten with the D810 had you waited for the D500.

    Shoot now, worry about specs later.

    I agree with this ^^^
    I also am on the fence about waiting for a cheaper 7300 or just biting the bullet for the D500 or going towards mirrorless. The QC mode is only 3fps which kind of sucks considering that the 810 and most all Canon cameras can shoot QC at higher fps than that. I wish they would have gave more info about the shutter and how loud the 10 fps is going to be. Are we talking D7100/7200 machine gun loud or conversely more like the D810, does not scare off the pigeons loud? Also, if anyone sees some example D500 4K example videos posted, let me know.

    Nope, it's like the D750: plastic core, mag top/back/lens mount covers.

    With the enlarged grip like the D750?

    Wow, it's like I blinked this evening and they launched everything.

    30min of 4K UHD recording (the D5 only records 3min)
    3-axis electronic image stabilization (in video mode)
    Only 3 minutes seems very low?

    They do point this out as well:
    "HDMI output of uncompressed 4K UHD movie data to an external recorder is also possible"
    Which is what a Pro would do anyway. 30min or 3min, it is going to be compressed when written to the internal storage (SD or XQD)

    I don't know how to say this in english, but holy something... After all these posts about a D400... I suddenly like Nikon again. Now they have a complete DSLR lineup as far as I am concerned. And they have come out with some great lenses recently. PitchBlack and Sevencrossing, what are your comments? :-)

    This is a BIG winner for me. Great features and the price is very reasonable considering the features. For all those who thought a D400 would never come: Nikon is late but they have surely given us a "mini-D5" here for less than half the cost.

    The larger finder magnification will be interesting to see. And the -ev4 center autofocus… I guess I need one.
