|Nikon D500 APS-C camera|
The D500 will give Canon some challenge in the cropped frame camera arena. My readers know I have picked the Canon EOS-7D as the best value APS-C camera in wildlife photography four years in a row. The EOS-7D Mark II was announced over one and a half years ago and I expect Canon to release a major firmware upgrade to the Mark II some time in the second half of 2016 or early 2017 to extend the life of the camera and tuneup the AF system a bit until the Mark III appears some time in late 2017 or early 2018.

Nikon Professional Services has created a Shooting Tips Page for D500 users. It covers useful features and functions for Sports AF and Movie editions. Take a look at the video below for a first impression of the camera.
