    Re: My New D500 Is Lost !

    What was lost has now been found. I have it all out of the plain 'ole refurbished box and have it ready to shoot. I was eating a salad and it was geting dark so I let my wife fire off the first 2 shots for actuation count purposes.

    Very good question!!

    This is a very serious offence @sonicbuffalo. These things are not taken lightly around here, and you may find yourself banished to the mirrorless sister site (Nikonites Jr) if this ever happens again. So watch yourself, young man!

    My wife won't even touch my cameras. She says they're too complicated. :-p

    Oh I know. She just prefers to keep life uncomplicated. I've offered her one to use on several occasions. She could if she wanted to just chooses not too. :-)

    I felt like I had too when after I pulled it out of the box and set it up, and asked her if she wanted to hold it, and she did. She then proceeded to tell me how good it felt in her hands. She shoots my Sony because it's smaller than the D7100, so I was surprised she was taking a liking to it. I asked her if she wanted to take a few shots with it, and she surprisingly said yes.

    Watch out! If it goes missing, I have a guess as to who the culprit may be. (But I wouldn't blame her, with you giving her the chance to try it out!)
