kirkyphoto: SRP in America is $2000 for body only but pre orders in UK at £1729. Bit of a disconnect there??

I can't speak for Canada. I was responding to the point comparing price in USA to that in the UK. That, I can talk with credibility having lived in both countries. Tax/VAT as already pointed out is a major cause of price quote comparison confusion, always has been. Warranty protections in the UK/Europe also tend to be much more generous than in the USA. Those protections shouldn't be expected to come for free. 30 years ago you could often literally swap the dollar sign for a pound sign for electronics, computers etc. Clearly exchange rates can often factor into prices. I have no idea about Canada.

pew pew: Deceiving marketing, they made it sound its all great 4k but they don´t tell you its only avaible on a heavy crop, so you basically need to shoot with a wide lens to get a normal view angle and not telephoto

For cropped video such as the d500, I expect to try using the Nikon 10.5mm DX lens. For my purposes, on a D4 the distortion was minimal & an acceptable tradeoff. With a metabones speedbooster F-mount adaptor on a GH4 results are very nice at 3840x2160, but at 4096x2160 distortion is easily noticeable. My guess is on the d500 distortion will be slightly less noticeable than on the GH4 so at 3840x2160 which is the only 4k mode on the d500 it might not be too bad of a compromise for getting a wide-ish field of view.

consumer protections & warranties are often better in other countries. Expect that for free?

jmacd27: If the D810 is, any indication we will be waiting almost 2 years for a review if any from dpreview.

Did they ever review the D4? Clearly they don't think much of Nikon products to bother.

Lightcapture: 3 minute limit for 4K? Mwahahahahaha!

3 minutes only applies to D5 for internal recording.
External recording isn't limited by the D5 or D500.
D500 has a 29min,59sec limit for internal recording.
Actually makes some sense if not obvious at first.

without a doubt the Nikon D4 - but it's not on your list.
