Hold the phone: D850 AF not up to D5

Found this the other day and posted it in another thread, but it does indicate that the D850, while theoretically the D5's equal at sports AF, fails to match it in the real world.

Not a knock on the D850, but it may be a consideration for potentials buyers thinking it will be a 9fps version (with grip) of the D5 for sports photography... it's probably not.
