Nikon D500 vs Nikon D7200 ISO comparison
First D500 test by dpreview – “leads class in studio and dynamic range tests”:

“As you can see, there’s very little difference in noise between a native ISO 3200 shot and an ISO 100 image captured at the same exposure values and ‘pushed’ 5EV during processing. This suggests the camera itself is adding very little additional noise to its images. As well as what this tells you about the sensor performance, it also means it’s possible to significantly underexpose low ISO images when working in low light, and capturing more highlight information than by using a higher ISO setting.”

BIF samples with the D500 (great AF):

“I’ve been trying D500 auto focus and so far tried Dynamic 72 and group AF. Both worked better than D4 and 7D II in my experience. With D500 I got more critical sharp images compared to D4 and more in focus images than 7DII. I had some trouble with busy background, but D500 handles it much better than D4. If I just turn around shoot a sequence I’m getting lots of really sharp images.”

Nikon D500 first impressions by a reddit user:

“The AF is something special. There are shots I know my D810 would have missed that I’m getting. I have enough shooting experience where if I get a sequence, I know if I got it in focus or not. There have been multiple times I have viewed a sequence that I was sure was going to be OOF that were nailed. The AF is a dramatic improvement over existing high end nikons, which were already great.”
