New D850 user coming from D800e - a few observations
4

Hi,

finally after 3 month waiting I also got my D850. The viewfinder is spectacular. Big and bright. I was using a 1.2 magnifier on the D800e but this is not necessary anymore. AF is so much better and reliable. Higher ISO is so much better. I was also surprised that the old batteries from the d800e work.

But the biggest surprise was the 58 1.4g on the D850. wide open it is so sharp and the camera nails the focus in any light.

Not a great picture but I shot this while my wife was driving the car through my window on a rainy day. This was after a few minutes when I left the camera store.

ISO 8000 f1.4 - just opened in photoshop and cropped
