Extreme resolution meets extreme speed. When Nikon introduced the D800 and D800E, it set a new benchmark for DSLR image quality and super high resolution photography that approached medium format. Now, five years later, Nikon proudly introduces the next evolution in high resolution DSLRs, a camera that allows photographers to capture fast action in 45.7 megapixels of brilliant resolution. With remarkable advancements across the board—sensor design, autofocus, dynamic range, sensitivity, Speedlight control, battery life, shutter and mirror drive mechanisms, Silent Photography in Live-View mode, focus shift capability and more. This is quite possibly the most impressive, well-rounded DSLR yet.

This is a review of a true production D850, not the pre-production versions.
Worthy upgrade from D800, D810 not so much you can wait for lower prices next year

Probably will update more as I go along this journey but as of now this has everything I wanted and some more from D810.

I have now had the camera for a few days and wanted to give my initial thoughts on the D850. I am upgrading from the D810 and will give the review from this perspective.

I’ve used a lot of Nikon cameras and have plenty of lenses. I use my gear professionally as well as for personal use.
great focuser upgrade from D810
I’ve had this camera for a couple of weeks now and am really pleased with my decision to upgrade from the Nikon D810.

I bought my D850 from my local dealer and was lucky to get one in the early shipment. I got it close on the heals of my D500 (about a couple of months). I absolutely love the D500 and the D850 is its big sister. The two share a lot of features and configurations and it is easy to move back and forth in the field. However, the D850 presents a number of challenges I didn’t have in the D500 — almost all are in the file handling. Big files slow the entire workflow down. LR and PS choke on them and process very slowly. (I’m on a high end iMac — 2015 model). I’m currently shooting JPGs on the D850; awaiting the LR update. The images are roughly the same quality as the D500 images, but so much larger. The learning curve on the D850 is steeper and longer than on the D500. I’m learning a lot as I go. The tell all books have yet to be published. I’ve been taking photos for about 65 years and digital images since the D1.

Man do I love this thing

I was running with a d610 and a D750 for a while and decided to upgrade to the d850 (can’t afford a d5). I am so happy with the choice, the image quality and features of this camera are off the chart. It feels great in the hand, because it has a nice deep grip. The touch screen was done right, unlike my Sony A6500, this touch screen is full function, scrolling, zooming, selecting, etc. I also really like the auto fine-tune feature, which my past cameras didn’t have talking about lens tuning made easy. I would love to have a mirrorless full frame version of this camera also. Nikon can you hear me, a mirrorless full frame camera with these features would be off the charts.
A total game changer — almost perfect

I have owned a lot of digital cameras over the years – Nikon D50, D90, D3, D800, Df, Canon 5DMKIII, etc. Some of those cameras have disappointed — the D90 with it’s CMOS sensor seemed less sharp than the old school CCD in the D50, and even the D800 with its antialias filter seemed less sharp than I expected.
