Yup! I agree with all that, there is no denying the quality, and capability 
of both the D500, and the D850. If Nikon had released the D500 as a D300S 
successor two years earlier than they did, I might well be using one today 
rather than making my move to the Fujifilm X-Camera system. I am quite happy 
with my X-T2.
