nikon df vs d500

I know very different camera's but in the same price range.

Finally made up my mind and planned to go order a d500 on saterday, then i saw a youtube film of the df and damn it i still like it.

Is the DF really that badly constructed as some say, failing lensmounts due to plastic construction?

The atractive part of the camera for me is the sensor 16mpix (don't need 20 or more, even the 12mpix of my a700 is more than a enough), great low light performance and probaly more forgiving for older lenses.

Would still have to buy new lenses, but would go with the more classic nikkors and primes.

With the D500 i'm looking at tele (zoom) lenses and with the DF i like the idee of changing primes.

Was photography more fun when you had to move to frame a shot, have i become lazy?

Whats your experience?
