Nikon D500... To purchase... Or not to purchase

Greetings to all,

I am considering the purchase of the D500. I actually pre-ordered on B&H just to get in line. I currently have a D4s which I use for wildlife, flying, and diving birds, along with other forms of wildlife. I love the camera but do not using it as often as I like... For this reason I would not consider the D5. I equally enjoy nature, and wildlife for which I use a D750, and D810.

The D500 looks very attractive especially with 10fps, and the extended length wit the DX format. My question is with the sensor... Would the D500 sensor give me close to equal quality as the 750 even though it's DX and not FX? And how does it stack up to the D4s?

I am deciding on which camera to sell... The 750, or the D4s. As far as glass... All of my lenses are FX. I primarily shoot with Nikon 50mm, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 80-400... Sigma 150-600 sport, 85mm, 35mm, 180mm macro, 105mm macro. I mention the lenses becuase I would be open council on their performance on th D500.

Thanks in advance
