    Yes, it will work fine with the D500. I have the lens, and did own the D500.

    It will work, but are you sure you want it? I just looked it up on DxOMark.com and for that lens on a D500 you will get 7mp perceived. The Nikon version is a bit better at 8mp.

    If you are looking at used, try KEH.com. They have a fair grading system, you can purchase a 2 year warranty at a reasonable price, and you have 14 days to return it with no questions asked. I got my 600mm f/4 from KEH.com

    I have the lens for my Pentax and used it quite a bit until I could afford the Pentax 55-300 versions. It's a nice enough lens for the money, but my versions(I had two of them) were subject to fringing and the Macro isn't a true macro. Minimum focusing distance is around 32 inches and actually that worked ok for closeups of the flowers/plants/insects I used it for.
