You may find it odd that my highest recommendation for a wildlife photography camera is not a full-frame camera. The Nikon D500 is for me, the ultimate wildlife photography camera, in no small part due to the price. The features of this camera are professional level, even though it’s DX and not FX (full-frame). With many of the features found in the Nikon D5 and Nikon D850 professional cameras, the D500 is a great low-priced alternative. Sure, it’s still around $2,000 USD, but it isn’t $3,300 like the D850 or $6,000+ like the D5!
