For many years I have photographed wildlife with the Canon 6D which is a very good camera when it comes to poor lighting conditions. Together with Tamron 150-600 G2, I have taken many pictures.
Now I want to make a change. I think. The wildlife I photograph is usually from a car. Especially during dawn and dusk. I'm used to having a camera that performs well in poor lighting conditions. The problem with the 6D is the autofocus system that feels limited and does not take as many pictures in seconds. A few times a year, I photograph eagles from a hide and would like a faster camera.
It's always talk about APS-C cameras when it comes to this type of photography but since these cameras are worse in poor lighting conditions, I have not chosen APS-C. But it may have changed in the nikon world.
As said. An exchange. I have found two models at Nikon, which I like a little extra. I tried both in store yesterday and brought some pictures home. The models are D500 and D750.
- The D750 is FF. 24 mpx. Double SD. Weather Sealed. WIFI. 6.5fps. Tilting screen. I liked the D750. Sufficient autofocus points. Good autofocus. Good dynamic range. Good iso handling. Tilting screen. The idea is to buy 200-500 with this and then I do not feel as much the need for the crop factor that aps-c offers.
- The D500 is APS-C. 20 mpx. Awesome autofocus system. Many autofocus points. 4k. Weather Sealed. 1/8000. WiFi & BT. 10 FPS. Tilting screen. Double memory card, but only 1 SD. Awesome dynamic range for APS-C. Good iso handling for APS-C. Joystick. Comfortable and sturdy to hold. Many buttons to configure according to taste. More expensive than the D750. The idea is to buy a used Sigma 120-300 / 2.8 OS (for brightness) or 200-500.
