5 Reasons For
14% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 24.2MP digital camera. That's 3.3MP higher than the Nikon D500 (24.2MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Bigger eye relief Edit
Nikon D7200 is 19.5mm Eye relief, but the Nikon D500 is only a 16mm Eye relief digital camera (3.5mm smaller). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

85g lighter Edit
The Nikon D7200 has a weight of 675g, whereas the Nikon D500 is a 760g digital camera (85g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Cheaper by $130
The Nikon D7200 costs $769.95, whereas the Nikon D500 is $899.99.
Better user reviews
Based on 654 reviews, the average user review score of the Nikon D7200 is 96%, but the average rating of the Nikon D500 is 90% (based on 4 reviews).
