    They are going to sync IBIS with VR for greater stabilization. The two combined will be better than either separately. Olympus is up to 6.5 stops combined I believe, Nikon should eventually do the same, it becomes very effective on long focal lengths.

    Not quoting but I'll try and tag.
    @hark, Nikon doesn't make a "professional" DX camera. Seriously, my D610 is worth more NPS points in terms of bodies than my D500's. It's ridiculous that it's not categorized as one because it is, but there you have it. Canon's equivalent is (I believe) the 7D Mk ii at about the same price.
    @Woodyg3 I've got two D500's and even if I ever go mirrorless those bodies are going nowhere and I may buy one more if they ever decide to blow them out. Nothing better for wildlife and it's the body that kept me with Nikon because it was introduced a week before my brother became a Canon pro and offered me his entire Canon Pro rig from his newspaper days to use for as long as I wanted since they were outfitting him with one of everything. There was nothing there that was better and there still isn't. Still bugs him to this day but he can't fault me for the decision.

    IBIS? I'm really not sure how much that lends itself to sports and wildlife, and birds in flight in particular. Not something I want or need. It'll get better over time but for what I shoot the VR in the lenses is more than sufficient.

    Just did and there are some, but what about ten years from now? I l searched D300 parts and found quite a few listings. So, parts may be available down the line if you find a tech that will work on it for you. Good thing to keep in mind.

    Agreed on all points. I find that most people who doubt the value of the D500 and DX in general have never owned or even tried the D500.

    I have yet to own a camera with IBIS, and I suspect I would like it in certain situations, but as you said I'm not sure it has much application in wildlife and sports. Subject movement is the critical factor in most of my shooting, more so than camera movement, normally. And, I can hand hold with my 200-500 at a pretty slow shutter speeds for still subjects.

    According to Nikon's web site, the D500 is classified as a DX Flagship Body. And the D5 is called their FX Flagship Body. So even though they don't call either of them a Pro body, according to Nikon they are in the same category.

    But that stinks about the points.

    Re: No market for DX cameras, or so we are told

    I've found IBIS is really just something nice to have. Like anything new, you might like it after you try it. For me it significantly reduces the need to carry a tripod and helps with low light shooting (instead of cranking up iso).

    Definitely not intend for BIF or fast sports. Most useful for static subjects. An area I hike in has pretty dense woods, auto ibis allows the camera to toggle between ibis on/off. I see a bird in flight it's off, a split second later notice a fox standing in a dark spot it's on and I shoot with no setting changes, without cranking up iso.

    Sure we don't need it, but it is another mirrorless benefit.

    Nikon's iteration will be much improved with an auto ibis option, hopefully through a firmware upgrade down the road.

    They could set it up like the auto shutter selection, kicks in below a certain shutter speed.
