Thanks for the tips but I am just talking about image quality, noise specifically. I am referring to images I have taken which have mostly not been cropped. I don't usually like to crop much if at all. ...

Relative to the Nikon D610 all your Nikon D500 images are "cropped" since the D610 is FX and the D500 is DX.

The D610 will always have an advantage for "identical" images of the same size viewed at the same distance since the D500 image is enlarged more.

In many cases you may be able to open the D500 aperture up one stop and shoot at one stop lower ISO than you would for the D610 and get similar noise performance.
Naturally, you can't go below ISO 100
