As the title states - why did Nikon go with the D500 sensor in the D7500 ? It's not so much the drop in megapixels but the performance of the D500 sensor itself in all but high ISO situations that is an initial concern . From ISO 100 to 3200 , the D7200 image IQ looks slightly better to me than the D500 - and that is the range 98% of all my pictures will be taken . *All I can hope for is Nikon has some new hardware / software tweaks with the D500 sensor in the D7500 that we are unaware of as of today ... Your thoughts ?

We will have to wait and see what Nikon does to optimise this sensor for the D7500.

Theoretically, the marginally larger pixel size of this sensor should be able to produce cleaner images as it can collect more light. How the properties of the sensor is channelled into the final D7500 output should be interesting.
