If NR is correct, the DR would be a step back from the D810. Not good for landscape photographers.

I'm wondering why that would be. The D800/D810 used the same sensor which used the pixel design from the D7000's sensor. Looks like the D850 uses the pixel design from the D500. In which case

How can a 45.75 MP FX sensor be the same pixel pitch as a 20.66 MP DX sensor? See my post above.

, looking at Bill Claff's excellent site:

I'd much rather see a meaningful evolution of the D810. Not a jack of all trades and master of none.

It is a meaningful evolution. Some more pixels, better AF, faster frame rate, bigger VF, swivelly LCD.
