    wow for that high an iso it's good. I have been thinking of upgrade from D90 mainly as I don't like the noise on that camera and while I was looking at the D850 I have also been looking at this mainly as I can use my current dx lenses.

    I'm not a huge spider fan - but those are indeed very cute! Are those rear facing eyes on the top/back of the head?

    Firstly, thanks and a little bit about these cuties, they are not like other types of spiders, these are hunters and nothing else, they have silk spinners but 1, as a security feature for if they fall, 2, they build a little sac for when they sleep and having babies, 3, they don't build webs either.
    Obviously big front eyes are there best feature, used for detection of prey and i believe the other eyes are for looking around but are not as good as the front eyes. These spiders are your friends they all have a personality and watch us as much as we watch them, try it one day.
    Sorry for waffling on.

    OK guys, just purchased another D500 (after selling mine last year and missing it). On that I had the genuine MB-D17 grip, but as I've bought the D500 with the 16-80 lens combo and a Nikon 200-500 VR as well, funds are a bit limited.

    Whilst I've never considered non genuine grips before, to tide me over for a few months until funds allow, has anyone used one of the 3rd party grips on the D500 and can comment if they are any oggd or not (Neewer, Meike etc) ?

    Also, will they work with the genuine Nikon EN-EL15 batteries ?

    Morning All.

    I'm looking for direct comparison/recommendations for someone who has had or has both these on the D500.

    I'm in the process of getting a Nikon 70-200 2.8 (to replace my siggy) and id like to add a 200-500 or siggy 150-600 (prob sport) money wise they are about the same give or take a little, I'm mainly into sports stuff (motocross, football etc) but would like to try BIF and other such things.

    looking through my sports stuff, my average is around the 125-175mm range, so I'm thinking the 200-500 might be too long for sports but I do tend to get closer so i don't have to ask my siggy to much at 200mm.

    I'm mainly thinking IQ and focus speed but also price will have a slight factor as it prob won't be my most used lens.

    cheers (y)

    I’ve got Meike. Never missed a beat.
    Don’t go out if it’s too wet mind you..
    Mostly using the camera without now. I find it handles ok and I just pocket a spare battery.

    As an add, i think there's the second hand Meike for sale in the classified (if you wanted to try a cheap version)

    Another quick question please. As I sold off my XQD cards last year with the D500, it means I don't have any for when the new D500 arrives.

    I do have plenty of medium fast (100mb/sec) UHS II cards from Sony and Lexar in capacities up to 128 GB. I don't tend to pray and pray, and would never get anywhere near the 200 shot buffer (nearer 10-12 shots at a time). That being the case, until funds allow (or if Father Christmas looks upon me nicely) woudl I be OK with the SD cards or is an XQD really a must?

    Just borrowed the shop display D500 until mine arrives and they have been using it with just an SD card, it was set in the menue i think.

    With those speeds of cards you should get about 70 pics in a burst. With what you are saying you normally do, that sounds like more than enough. Easy enough to check though. ;)

    If only for real time back up I doubt you would need a XQD card by the sound of it. Good to back up for important pics though, just in case. ;)

    I’ve been using mine with a Sandisk 64g ultra, not the fastest but all I had to start, been doing football with it it’s fine for me, I only really do 4-5 burst at a time maybe, no idea if other disaplines need more ??

    I will get a xqd but just so much money and I’d unlikely notice much difference.
