Re: D500 wont update.

I've posted several problems if my memory is working. Camera refuses to turn off. Firmware refuses to update. Can't remember the other problems. My latest was caused by Nikon placing a faulty firmware on a D500. I've probably spent over $1,500 getting D500 firmware problems fixed. Probably would have been cheaper to just get D850s. I have two D500s that don't get much use. And I would never depend on them for anything critical. One refuses to update firmware again even though it works fine. Firmware was put on by Nikon. Of course I had no idea Nikon had screwed up the firmware the last time they replaced it. I've moved to a couple D850 that have had zero problems. Just missing 1 frame per second and a little more weight. The D500 makes nice backups and toys for my wife.
