D850 - What Would You Change?

This D850 of mine is DULL. Because it's so perfect.

Just looking back at some of the DSLR's I owned, they ALL required some work to get what I wanted. What I mean by "Work" is that I had to pay attention to certain technical limitations.

But the D850 is just about perfect. Low ISO is awesome. High ISO is incredible. Resolution is insane. Auto Focus is monkey-proof and uncanny in 3D mode. I literally ONLY look at composition and DOF now. The D850 has my back on almost everything else.

There are no issues. People complaining about pixel density and sharpness clearly need to work on technique. I get tack sharp results at 500mm even at 1/20 (some serious credit to the VR on the 200-500!).

So what would I do different on the D850?

1) Fully articulated screen...

2) I can always use cleaner higher ISO...

3) Build a version with an integrated vertical grip like a D5/D4.

4) Make it toast bagels....
