5 Reasons For
14% higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D750 has a megapixel of 24.3MP, however the Nikon D500 is only a 20.9MP digital camera (3.4MP lower). 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 D750 is 21mm Eye relief. That's 5mm bigger than the Nikon D500 (21mm). 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.

Lighter Edit
The Nikon D750 is a 750g digital camera. That's 10g lighter than the Nikon D500 (750g). 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.

Two more awards
The Nikon D750 has 25 awards, however the Nikon D500 has 23 awards.
User reviews are better
The Nikon D750 has an average user review score of 97%, but the Nikon D500 has an average rating of 88% (based on 5 reviews).
