    Default Nikon D500

    I went into Grays of Westminster in London to buy a Nikon D750 two days ago.

    They had a Nikon D500 demo to look and play with, but no stock.

    The left control dial is same as the D300/D300s and lacks the direct access of the U1/U2 user settings.

    The body feels noticeably bigger and heavier compared to a D750. It feels well built and more pro than any other Nikon body with the exception of the D2/D3/D4/D5 models.

    I am sure you have read the complaints regarding the crippled built in Wi-Fi that only works with android devices. So if you own an Apple device, you now need to change your phone if you want wireless control/transfer.

    Grays of Westminster supplied the VAT forms and a return envelope with a stamp to post at Heathrow/Gatwick.

    Nikon D750 works out at R25000-00 after VAT refund.

    That's less than I paid a year ago!

    Having said that though, I am glad I bought locally, because I have needed to have the shutter replaced, which they did under warranty and with no quibble.
