... 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.

I hope you will get one, and that will let you improve your photography. It is really a very legitimate upgrade from the D700. Everything the D500 brought to D300 users, but in an FX implementation

Agreed .

The D850 should  finally quell all angst from any remaining  D700 hold outs such as myself ! Pity the grips for the two new generation bodies are different and not shared.

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers
