Nikon D500 high ISO Performance

Still testing the D500 for wildlife shooting but so far I am really impressed. The long distance AF performance is nothing short of amazing and the camera makes a great challenge to FX when it comes to high ISO vs detail (pixel density).

Here are a few samples:

ISO 40000 No NR:

What is great about the D500 is that this cleans up quite easily with a quick NR session in CNX2. No other adjustments made:

The next picture is ISO 7200 with no NR done to the bird and only a touch of NR done to the background to smooth it:

Next up is at ISO 4500 during a light rain. This picture has no noise reduction to it:

This picture of the roe deer is taken after sunset at ISO 2200 again no NR 1/60 hand held with the great 600/4 VR:

Lastly I have two pictures at lower ISO to demonstrate the great detail and the far reaching AF-C and detail level after heavy cropping.

First an none cropped picture with great detail (notice the insects):

And last a heavily cropped long distance shot:
