    I'd be excited if I could afford one! As it is, I am considering upgrading my D7100 in the next 6 months - I'm just unsure whether to replace it with a D500, or get a D750 or D810 then keep the D7100 on the end of my 150-600mm.

    With those camera choices i think you need to make it main subject dependent.

    No critique, but buying the D500 and then keeping the 7100 on your long lens sounds to me like you got it backwards. My D500 stays glued on my long lens because it handles wildlife (where DX is an advantage, which is why I opted for the D500) so well, and my D7100 does everything else I want.

    At this point, I can only get excited about the D500 (which I own), the D5 (well, only a little, since I consider it too heavy) and the D850 (which I lust for). The 153-point AF is such a vast improvement over the older AF systems, and the low-light capabilities of these three are so much better, that nothing else makes much sense to me any more. Don't get me wrong - the D750 and D810 are great cameras and anyone should be proud to own one of them. But if you're in the market for a new camera and ready to spend serious dough, I would no longer go for either.


    NOTE: Just realized I misread your post. Replacing the 7100 with the 500 makes perfect sense. However, given how litte used 7100s go for these days, I would keep it. It's a great camera, after all.

    It seems to me that most of us have wished for a single camera that could do it all.
    The D850 seems to have achieved this better than any camera before.
    That's something to get excited about.
    I am so happy with my D500 in every way that the D850 has me looking into the current market value of my kidney!

    Re: NIkon D850: Best Wildlife Camera EVER?

    I like the 850 a lot. I think having the D700 the past few months has really impacted my attitude about full frame. I would love to have it, but right now it is out of reach financially. But no less so than a 750. My focus is on a new lens.

    I still love the D7200 for my 200-500 Nikon Lens and sometimes when I go to my niece's softball game for just a bit more reach with the 70-200. But I could see myself saving some money toward that 850 as the next planned purchase. I like what I have read so far.

    That's what I'm thinking Mike - The D7100 is still a good camera, and in full working order so it will do just fine for wildlife, which is maybe a third of what I like to shoot - The remaining 2/3rds would be suited to a full frame....

    I think a lot for me depends on if / when and for what price the D750 gets replaced with - That could make all the difference.

    Agree. A D750 replacement seems to be the biggest gap in Nikon's portfolio at this point. All other bases are well covered.
