AF Comparison D750/D850 (coming from a D7000)

Hi there,

I hope I haven't missed any thread covering this topic, if so, please link and I feel sorry

I currently shoot with a D7000 and am happy but for two things: My lenses would suit a fullformat camera better and the AF sometimes is too slow (esp. for dog agility).

So now I'd like to change my gear to a Nikon FX (enough lenses that a change to e.g. Sony would be to costy). I wonder now, if a D750 would make me happy enough to save 2k€ or if I should buy a D850 instead (larger spread, presumably better AF).

I am a bit at loss, because I can't find any comparisons online and can try both cameras only in-store (no dogs there, though). Maybe one of you has or had both cameras and can compare.

If I'd the D7000's AF system a 100 points, at what number would you rate the D750 and the D850? I have fast lenses (mainly the Tamron SP 70-200/f2.8).

I do not see the need for any other features of the D850. Sure, larger buffer would be nice, but I can live well with the D7000-buffer, which is even smaller than the one of the D750 and can print large enough with 16MP.

I hope you can help me with my selection, thanks in advance,

Yours, Lasse
