Why I want the D850.

I am a wildlife shooter, mostly, and use the D5, the D500, and the D810. The more pixels I can get for my shots the better. So, the D810 fits that bill. However, the AF of the D810 is not as good as the AF on the D5 or D500. So, when birds are moving fast, fighting, catching prey, diving etc. the D500 or D5 are excellent, also in terms of FPS, but of course the D5 lacks in pixel count. The promised specs of the D850 will make my tasks much easier to accomplish. So, I am putting in an order the moment the retailers here will have it. I look very much forward to this new tool. Thanks Nikon.
