    Old timer here, can't remember my ID and password, member since 2006 or earlier. Had to create a new account but PM admin on account recovery.

    No offense taken, the camera is for work, wouldn't spend that much on a travel camera

    Can share some images later

    Got the D850 on launch day. (Yeah, bash the 'rich buyer' all you want)

    Camera is a great upgrade of the D810. Its faster in terms of AF speed and frame rate. Tilt LCD + 4K makes video a lot easier now

    Its very very subjective I guess.

    In my opinion, the D810 -> D850 jump is alot bigger then the D800/E -> D810 jump (Mainly for the great D810 sensor) - The D850 is more usable now with bluetooth, tilt lcd, great 4k video, xqd (pity its not dual xqd), high frame rate.

    Of course its far from perfect. The lack of a built in commander (Fine, take away the flash, but at least build in the new radio controller), no focus peaking in 4K video mode, no focus peaking in AF mode, rear AEL button is gone.

    Bird is not in perfect focus. I had did an initial focus on the bird, and started recording around f/8. Its possible the branch shifted,etc. I did not adjust the focus once i started shooting. The problem with videoing nature, you could spend time getting ready and miss the bird

    This is a processed version of the video. (I cropped it from 4k to 1080p and adjusted the gamma, it was bit too bright imo.)



    The liveview autofocus is better then the d810, but still almost useless compared to the Sony,etc. Its a pity you don't get focus peaking in 4K mode too.

    No. There is not enough supply. But no justification for such low numbers Nikon produces for a high profile launch.

    There are several possibilities why D850 no stock:

    1) Nikon has made mass production but still can't keep up with the huge demand

    2) Nikon never expected such a high demand, hence initial production is too low

    3) Factory in Thailand got flooded

    4) Low supply of image sensor

    So give it 3 months unless Nikon japan screw up on their production else by then stock will be everywhere.
    I also not in hurry, sold away the D810. Maybe will only look for a replacement early next year

    5) They are producing at a financially sustainable rate. No reason to setup new lines to produce high volume and to fire the people after the first few months.

    This is probably the most logical and reasonable answer having worked in the manufacturing industry whole life.
