From Dpreview conclusion :

The D500 is among the best DSLRs we’ve ever tested. Its strengths are its superlative autofocus combined with the ability to keep shooting at 10 frames per second. There are other APS-C cameras that offer similarly excellent image quality but none that offer the speed, ergonomics and dependability of the D500.

Nikon D500 features a 20.9-megapixel APS-C image sensor. The digital SLR model is powered by the new Expeed 5 image processor found in the D5. It also has the same 153-point AF system with 99 cross-type sensor and can able to shoot continuously at 10 fps with a 200 shot buffer for Raw images.

The D500 has the ability to capture striking 4K UHD video at up to 30p (3840×2160), as well as Full HD (1080p) video at a variety of frame rates. The high-end DX-format DSLR also features ‘SnapBridge’, a constant connection to a smartphone using Bluetooth. It is the first model in the mobile application.
