D500 and D750 low light capabilities


ane

In the futurity I am looking toward upgrading my camera trunk (currently have a D5200). I shoot a lot of stage photography and use a Sigma 18-250 to be able to snap betwixt wide angle and tight focus on the fly (if anyone hears whispers of a faster lens with the same focal length range, let me know). My main problem is the limitation of the D5200 sensor. I was at a camera store today, told a sales acquaintance this story and how I was thinking of upgrading to the D750 in the future. They told me that interestingly plenty the D500 performs, pretty much, just as well as the D750 in depression calorie-free situations (assuming the same ISO). Is there anybody that tin confirm this? It would be great for me because I could and then apply the aforementioned glass I already have while gaining performance.

I shoot a lot of stage photography and use a Sigma xviii-250 to be able to snap between wide angle and tight focus on the fly (if anyone hears whispers of a faster lens with the same focal length range, let me know). My master problem is the limitation of the D5200 sensor. I was at a camera store today, told a sales associate this story and how I was thinking of upgrading to the D750 in the futurity. They told me that interestingly enough the D500 performs, pretty much, just equally well every bit the D750 in low low-cal situations (assuming the aforementioned ISO). Is there everyone that can confirm this? It would be bang-up for me considering I could and so use the same glass I already accept while gaining performance.

The associate lied to yous. The D750 is most a terminate improve, unsurprisingly. Many discussions on this forum almost it; the ones that provide adjacent images of the same size are the ones to take seriously. Or simply use the DPReview image comparison tool.

My primary problem is the limitation of the D5200 sensor. I was at a camera shop today, told a sales associate this story and how I was thinking of upgrading to the D750 in the time to come.

I’ve owned both… I would say that if y’all are shooting JPG’s, yes this would be the instance (closer in noise performance). If y’all are shooting RAW, the D750 images will exist much cleaner and easier to piece of work with. Especially if you’ll be using the 18-250, the D750 hands downward. If you lot go a ii.8 lens or faster, depending on your scenario, the D500 might be a ameliorate pick.

They lied. I ain a D750, and accept recently played with some D500 RAWs. From what I saw, I wouldn’t desire to shoot the D500 at ISO 5000; with the D750 I have very useable photos at 8000.

Especially if you’ll be using the eighteen-250, the D750 hands downwards. If you go a 2.eight lens or faster, depending on your scenario, the D500 might be a better choice.

The 18-250 is a DX lens. If you use the D750 in DX fashion, yous lose the 1 stop advantage.

I have non worked with D750 files, bur I worked with D810 files and I have not observe D500 files more difficult to work with.

Is this image usable?
