I want good IQ, just like the next guy, but as you say, Mako2011, it's all about practical use. After shooting with my D7500 a ton, I began taking it instead of my D6xx cameras along with me on my work trips. I'd found no "practical" difference between them. The slight difference in dynamic range means nearly nothing, the noise levels difference between my D7500 and my D6xx cameras was practically negligible, DxO numbers notwithstanding.

The OP is not happy with the noise level of his D5100 above ISO 250, with that in mind my recommendation to consider a D610 seemed to be a reasonable solution to what he is looking for. If iso 250 is the limit on his D5100, the D7500 isn't going to be much of an improvement.
As to the DXO numbers, I'd suggest they are spot on the money, just last night I was shooting astrophotography with both the D7500 and the D610 on tripods beside each other, my best mate had his D7200

The results are clear, a full stop (at least) noise advantage which is a huge advantage in this instance, the difference between shooting at ISO 1600 or 800, or half shutter speed for higher iso value...

Interesting that 1 stop is considered a ' huge advantage.

When light is good and the subject is easy...may not be a huge advantage.  But when you are max performing the camera and light is at a premium...one stop really can be a noticeable large advantage.

I mean , we are not talking film...nor 12 year old cameras.

When you are working at the limits of the tech...12 year old vs one year old body vs film is a bit irrelevant.  All about getting the most when the situation is tough.  And if money is on the line (paid shoot) it really can be the difference when it comes to getting the next job

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
