FLAGSHIP AF PERFORMANCE: EXTREME PRECISION
Equipped with the same AF system as the D5, Nikon’s FX-format flagship, the D500 lets you focus with absolute precision, even in near darkness. With an incredible 153 focus points and 99 cross-type sensors, this phenomenal AF system offers unprecedented coverage, covering almost the full width of the viewfinder frame. AF sensitivity down to -4 EV at the central point, and -3 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C/68 °F) for all other points, enables superior low-light performance. Small subjects moving at high speed can be tracked with a new level of precision and subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected. The system is configurable for 153-point, 72-point and 25-point coverage settings in Continuous AF mode. All 153 focus points are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses with an open aperture of f/5.6 or faster, and 15 central focus points work with an effective aperture of f/8.
