D4 vs D850 ISO 6400 dark scene

I initially did this with my AF-S 58/1.4G but got some strange results. Issue was that there are small differences between individual cameras aperture control levers so when shooting stopped down the aperture may not be the same when a G type lens is mounted on different bodies. This can be significant, in this case around 1/4 stop.

I reshot it using my Zeiss 50/2 Makro using aperture ring to set aperture.

In Lightroom I did the following:

* Auto WB in LR for both images so they looked the same

* Set both profiles to 'Adobe Standard' this is the only one available for D850 - really important!

* Export both images at same size

Apart from a 0.1 difference in brightness between the two (D850 is brighter)  they seem identical. Rather than rely on my JPEGS I would suggest downloading the DNG's.
