Nikon D7200 vs Nikon D500

Nikon D7200 vs D500 : Which Should You Buy?

Packed with powerful features, a new processor, a remarkable AF system, and a new (but lower resolution) sensor, the D500 also doesn’t come cheap, at about $2000 for the body. In some cases, the higher resolution sensor of the D7200 will provide sharper, higher resolution photos than the D500, and it is lighter and more compact to boot. So which one is right for you?
