I had the chance to spend a brief 30-minutes with the new Nikon D500 in my hands today at lunch. With no time to mess around, I decided to fit it with the Tamron SP 90MM F/2.8 DI MACRO 1:1 VC USD and try my luck at some close-up photography.
First impressions, the camera feels very familiar to the D750, but the rear (especially near the trigger) is a bit more crowded. Dedicated ISO button - YES! Focus joystick - pretty cool. I could get used to the focus joystick, but found myself out of habit using the D-pad which accomplishes the same function. Continuous High is wow! I found it impossible to take one one shot, and very easy to pop off 3-5 shoots without even trying. If it had been a birding day, this would be perfect.
Testing a newer lens on a new camera, it's nearly impossible to tell what was working - but this combination worked very well together. Here are some sample images of a jumping spider. All the images are single-frame shots (no stacking.)
