... Most of what people are looking for in "revolution" are aspects that exclude skill- eye recognition AF, 20 fps, endless buffer, etc. Even the grail of an endlessly smaller, lighter body is part of this desire to eliminate any effort at all.

... I realize that there is no concrete line between evolution and revolution. We just have to be careful that we are not wandering off the path of photography altogether.

Iain, sometime in the past, you got very excited about the D7200:

"D7200- the perfect DX camera "

Then, the D500 came upon. On the day of the announcement, except for the price, you got very excited about the D500:

"D500 vs D7200$ "

Later, you expressed your disappointment that the D500 did not meet your inflated expectations, and said you were glad you did not lay the $:

"Is the D500 Nikon's Great Disappointment 2016 "

I am sure that a few months from now you will lament that the D850 did not meet your excited expectations

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers

The D850 looks to be a great combination of specs in the one body , potentially suitable as a great FX all rounder .

However , it is not revolutionary in any way just as Iain G Foulds is no Che .

I agree. It's just a better mousetrap. And the mice needn't start trembling in their beds.
