D850 under the tree...but?

Very chuffed that I have got my hands on the D850, well almost. My wife says it's under the tree and can't be opened until Xmas morning. Oh well only 7 days to go😂

In the meantime I need a couple of lenses, what about these?

Tamron 24-70 f2.8 G2 - for landscapes and general photography?

It has good build quality, reviews look pretty favourable and above all it has a great image stabiliser which is critical given the 45mp?

Tamron 100-400 f4.5 - f6.3 VC for wildlife and maybe a bit of landscapes. The reasons I choose this is low weight, value, and good focal length. But just a little suspect about 6.3 at 400mm, that's said I usually shoot F5.6 and higher to ensure a good DOF in certain shooting situations.

I know some will say only the top Nikon glass will do, and maybe that's true for professionals but I am an advanced ameture on a budget.

Any users of Above with any comments on performance on D850 would be much appreciated.

seasons greetings
