Re: D500...stopped in my tracks.

Yes, a couple of my sports photographer friends have got them: very capable bits of kit, but seriously porky!

It's amusing to hear (say) Nikon DSLR proponents try to pick holes in (say) the E-M1ii by cherry-picking from their line-up:

"It doesn't AF as well as the D500" "Sure, but have you tried to carry the thing around all day and take 2 of them on a flight as carry-on?"

"The Nikon 80-400 weighs about the same as the Oly 300, you know, and costs much less" "Yes, but the D500 body you have to hang it off weighs much more and is huge".

"But the D750 is full frame and is around the same size as the E-M1ii" "Yes, and it focuses like a brick and manages only 6.5fps unless you add the (huge) battery grip and you don't get the advantages of an EVF and Pro Capture... etc..."

Too much Oly gear.
