Delayed: Nikon Japan pushes D500 to end of April
Nikon shooters have waited a long time for a D300S replacement, and it appears that they're going to have to keep waiting a little longer. Nikon Japan has released a statement (in Japanese) pushing the D500's initial March release back to late April 2016. Nikon cites high demand for the camera as the cause of the delay. It seems that the D500's battery grip and WT-7A wireless transmitter are also delayed.
Come April, the D500 will be available for $1,999.95 body only or with the 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR lens for $3,069.95.
