Because if you read the D850 manual it says... "AF Tuning is not recommended in most situations and may interfere with normal focus".

That's Leonard's line .

Actually it is Nikon's comment.

We do not know whether the test methodology was good or less than idealĀ 

The individual AF points are a different size and density between the 2 cameras.

If the AF methodology is less than good then there can be differences between the 2 cameras.

It is not difficult to induce differences with the same body and lenses using Nikon's D850 fine tune system switching between a target with lines parallel to the long dimension, or the short dimension, of the frame.

Poor test methodology may not produce an accurate result.

Some say if some of your photos are not good the camera you use is only a recording device.
