At long last, a Nikon D500 has found its way into our office (thank you LensRentals!). We put the camera straight into our studio to find out what the long-awaited successor to the D300 is capable of. It's only the beginning of course, but you can see for yourself below what the D500's full ISO range looks like in our studio scene (cranked all the way up to ISO 1,638,400) and on the next page you'll see the results of our dynamic range testing. There's good news in store – in our initial testing the D500's performance is class-leading with respect to low light (high ISO) noise performance, as well as dynamic range. In fact, it's essentially ISO invariant, taking after Nikon's own D7200 rather than the D5.
