And my 24-120mm isn't quite wide enough. Any suggestions? Can't remember if you have the 16-80mm.
    I don't know if this is wide enough for you, but my Tammy 17-50 f/2.8 on the D500 or D7200 gives me very sharp pics that I can print to 16x20 with no issues at all.

    On cameras with XQD/SD dual card slots, even a good old fast SD card can work quite well in the second slot. That's no help to the Z6 and 7 users, though.

    I have 4 XQD cards for use with my D500, so even on a long trip with lots of long bursts of birds in flight I am well covered. I'm glad I got the cards before prices went up. At this point I will be surprised if XQD card prices ever go down.

    got my new card today and i was wondering should i start using it or wait till the old one dies. Well it looks like the old one is trying to separate, so that answers that.

    Where did you get your card? I only have one, but now I think I might get a back-up if yours died already. Only one of my SD cards ever gave me a problem and that was the plastic lock that broke on it.

    I must be the only D500 owner that considers my XQD card as no more than internal storage, i remove the SD card for downloading and just pop the XQD once every three weeks or so to ensure the contacts stay clean, i dont even have an XQD reader.

    I'm not familiar with a D500, is there a difference (other than form factor) between the SD and the XQD connection? Speed maybe?

    XQD faster, never bothered to look into it, i wanted the D500 and it came with a XQD slot, SD is pleanty fast enough for me.

    XQD is certainly faster than an SD, but with the D500s large buffer, it isn't often a concern as long as you have a reasonably fast SD card. Sometimes I like to "keep the hammer down" on birds in flight or some type of action, and the XQD card comes in handy then.

    Which SD card is fast? Mine is old and bogs down if there is a large number of clicks.

    If your camera's buffer is outstripping your card, it might be time to get a faster card. The write speed is what's important if you shoot a lot of long bursts because that's the spec' that tells you how fast the card can accept data from the camera buffer and faster, obviously, is better.

    ONE OF the fastest SD cards would be the Lexar Professional 2000x.

    By way of comparison, the fastest card my D750 will support is the SanDisk Extreme Pro; a UHS-I card with a maximum write speed of 90MB's per second.

    Re: XQD Card cancelled.

    I do not understand some of the comments here. The speed, thru-put really, is a function of the internal circuitry of the mechanism (camera in this instance) first _then_ the speed of the card where some form-factors are faster than others by design. And every card that I've looked at tries to hide that spec behind verbage.
