Nikon D500 Optics

Our Nikon D500 did not come with a "kit" lens, so we don't have any lens test results. We do however have our viewfinder accuracy test results below.

Viewfinder Test Results

Very good accuracy with the optical viewfinder and LCD monitor in Live View mode.

70mm, Optical 70mm, Live View LCD

The Nikon D500's optical viewfinder displayed about 99% coverage in our test, which is very good but a little short of Nikon's 100% spec. Interestingly, LCD coverage in Live View mode was close to 101% in our tests. Still, very good coverage.


The images above were taken from our standardized test shots. For a collection of more pictorial photos, see our Nikon D500 Photo Gallery .
