Nikon D500 Review by ishootshows via PetaPixel:

I feel like the new Nikon D500 delivers on the speed, performance, and quality that the DX format originally promised us. We have a DX sensor that rivals the image quality of full-frame cameras for per-pixel acuity and high ISO performance, with an agility and responsiveness that is up to the most demanding photographic tasks. All in a compact and lightweight DSLR system.

In particular, the new 153-point AF system is class-leading, and I think that this, combined with the 10 FPS continuous shooting rate, are going to be game changers for any photographers who chase decisive moments.

Nikon D500 Hands-on review at Techradar:

The autofocus system is particularly enticing and the early indications are that it is very good, capable of getting moving subjects sharp in difficult lighting conditions.

While I’m yet to be convinced that the top sensitivity expansion setting is worthwhile, noise appears to be controlled well throughout the native sensitivity range (ISO 100-51,200) and even the results at ISO 102,400 look pretty decent – at least on the back of the camera.

Nikon D500 Hands-on review at dpreview:

This is a camera that has the technical chops and rugged build that should provide top-notch performance and stand up to almost anything you can throw at it. It’s also a great companion body for those who use a D4s – or maybe even a new D5 – for times when small size or long telephoto reach is critical.
