Re: D7500 iso noise

The sensor in the D5100 is actually still pretty good, apart from resolution it is still nipping at the heals of later DX sensors.

I have both the D5100 and the D7500, the D7500 has an incremental advantage, not revolutionary. It retains noticeably better dynamic range as iso increases, but the signal to noise ratio is only slightly better. The 16mp sensor in the D5100 has very malleable RAW files, some argue more malleable than latter DX sensors.
And regarding noise, it comes down to the way the sensor produces it and how you can deal with it in post, some would argue that the D7500 noise is easier to deal with when processing the files.
If you want the best image quality that will be noticeably better right away, then consider getting an FX D610, this has a full stop noise advantage over the D7500 and you could pick one up for less money (if budget is a concern).
For the image quality the D 610 produces (still near the top of FX sensors) it is a bargain.
