Nikon D500 Sensor Review and Test Results at DxOMark

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for Nikon D500 (AmazonB&HAdorama) flagship DX-format DSLR camera. Nikon D500‘s sensor achieved an overall DxOMark score of 83 points, a somewhat lower score than expected (when compared with D5500 and D7200).

Conclusion from DxOMark:

Detractors might cite the D500’s lower pixel count over the Nikon D7200 as a step backwards, however, the new 20.9-Mpix sensor has enabled a phenomenal 10 fps maximum capture rate along with a decent-size 200 RAW (14-bit lossless) frame buffer — one of the main weaknesses of the D7200. Sensor performance is a real highlight, with excellent dynamic range at both low and high ISOs, and with noise levels that are not only on par with the D7200, but lower than the two main rivals. As a camera for sports and wildlife, the Nikon D500 is a solid choice, and although it is one of the most expensive crop cameras on the market today, it is also one of the most capable.

Nikon D500 vs Nikon D7200 vs Nikon D300s: Well-balanced performance

Nikon D500 vs Canon EOS 7D Mark II vs Sony SLT Alpha 77II: Excellent all-round performance

By the way, Nikon D500 DSLR camera gets an impressive 91% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview. And the Nikon D500 was selected for the Best APS-C DSLR Expert award at 2016 TIPA awards.
