in contract to nikon d500 and tamron 16-300 which i am considering to buy now for phoojournalism (any criticism ???) (both second hand)

what full crop nikon and lense would you recommend ? in this price range

Personally from everything said, the d7200 sounds like better value for you rather than the d500 (and I want a d500 myself).

I don't think that the superzoom lenses you are looking at demand the world class AF of the d500. Not convinced the lens you are looking at is the best for the job either. But, I've never done photojournalism.. think you need some advice from some working professionals.

i am now more inclined toward d7200 because it's better value, smaller size

for 523 usd i can get a second one with a battery and charger - 28 k shutter count

i want to have the lense which will be fast and for many situations, that why tamron 16-300 as it offers not bad quality from macro, to wide aperture and large zoom

i know that d500 sucks a bit in video due to the cropping
