D850 first light

My first D850 body arrived yesterday. Below are a few quick snaps, nothing arty.

1st impressions...

1) You have to do some serious work to get a soft shot. Even when I was sloppy, the D850 did not punish me as with D810 and D800. Focus is impressive. I feel like I can toss it in the air and get sharp results.

2) The tweaks to grip and form factor are impressive...a much better handling camera, at least for my hands.

3) Increase in resolution is more significant than I expected.

4) Rear LCD is really well done and articulation is useful.

I'm shooting more tests over the next week, but thus far it's pretty much perfect. I've tried it with 4 lenses and AF is spot-on.
