Maybe it's value will come back as an antigue ;-)
The last time I felt this way about a camera, was when I had the D3. There are two reasons for that: burst speed and AF. Both cameras were/are leaders in their class. The D500 does a super job tracking and capturing an erratic moving object such as a football or Lacrosse player. Very pleased!
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm F4G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
Least used lens. Good lens, but focal length is boring. I like to carry it when I'm out shooting primes. The wife loves it on the D610, because the kit is light.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm F1.8G
Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II
All three of the 1.8g primes I own (28, 50, and 85) are good lenses. But the 85 probably the best of the three.
Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm F4 S
Sigma 1.4x EX DG Tele Converter
Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM
Very disappointed in its construction. ill contact Sigma for repair.
At 7 1/2 lbs, a beast, but what a beast. Great lens for sports, (hence the name120-300 ...Sport). Clean sharp images with very good AF and VR. In retrospect, if one can't afford a new Nikon 300 2.8 (me...in retirement), the Sigma is an excellent second choice.

This deserves a much higher rating. But the oil and dust issue, really tarnished its reputation. I am glad Nikon FINALLY established a decent policy, that led to my getting a D610, a camera that finally delivered on the promise of the D600
A little bit cleaner, a little bit faster, than the D600, the D610 delivers on the promise of its predecessor: a full frame enthusiast's camera, packing a 24 mpixel sensor, that many prefer over the D8xx sensor. I like having both.

Nikon AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF
Fun lens. Since I am going back to DX with the D500, I may try to pick this one up aain

Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
A monster of a lens that served me well for 19 years, and was still going whenI traded it in
Not impressed by it. I think I got spoiled by my 70-200 2.8 and 120-300 2.8. Under those circumstances, the 70-300 would have to be rated lower.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm F3.5-4.5G ED VR
The one without VR. Considered pretty good by most. I thought it lacked pop
