Please be aware the D500 does not have pin motor so older pin motor lenses will need to be manually focused or you need to buy lenses with motor in the lens. 90 day wty.

This is problematic. I can't justify this purchase right now.

But, man, that is a good price....

For those picky about video, single cmos sensors will exhibit the rolling shutter. Also the built in mic is not very good and there is no external mic port. The Video mode is what it is, a slapped on improvised setup on a DSLR meant to do still pics in 5 minute increments.

yes, if the video feature was, well, more full-featured, I'd have already ordered this. and, since, i do need a video cam as well as an upgrade from my 6mp DSLR, maybe I'll wait.

ok, i have to wait.

Oh yeah, I forgot to note, the video mode for DSLR at the moment do not continuously focus.

Some 4/3 cameras have this features but they are not SLR and max out at 720p.

HD video solid state camcorders are down to 500-750 now.

Which makes it effectively closer to 720p than 1080p sharpness.
