Does any consumer grade camera have better IQ than the D850 ?

I'm a current Canon shooter, so naturally, I started to ask this on the Canon section.... Then I thought, I'm honestly not trying to start a war lol

However here, I can probably safely say, the D850 has been my dream camera since it came out. I still have very little interest in mirrorless. For myself, first and foremost, is absolute image quality. If they could make this any better, they can "add weight" to the camera, and I'd be okay with it.

I know the "pro level" Nikons and Canons do other things really well, like fantastic focusing, crazy burst rates, and in camera processing. But none of that stuff ever matters for me. Most of the stuff I do, is landscapes, on a tripod.

Anyway, I was kind of surprised that the D850 scored WAAY better on image quality than either Canon's, or Nikon's top pro level camera !? I figured it would at least be close ?

So other than maybe a $50K medium format Hasselblad, is there another camera out there with better IQ than a D850 ???
