A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

14 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count 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.

13% more total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 24.72MP digital camera. That's 3.16MP more than the Nikon D500 (24.72MP).
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 5.8x optical zoom digital camera. That's 0.8x bigger than the Nikon D500 (5.8x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

3.5mm bigger eye relief Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 19.5mm Eye relief digital camera, whereas 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.

13% lighter Edit
The Nikon D7200 has a weight of 675g, however 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.

Shorter Edit
The Nikon D7200 has a height of 106.5mm. That's 8.5mm shorter than the Nikon D500 (106.5mm).
Thinner Edit
