IMO the d850 is the best DSLR ever made, and I suspect it won't be superseded by another DSLR. I'd get one whilst they're still available.

Keep the Sony and 24-105mm for wide to mild tele.


Imho, DSLR - even the mighty D850 cannot keep up with mirrorless when it comes to using fast primes wide open. The AF just isn't as consistent or accurate until about f2.8, at which point you're into zoom territory anyway. The Samyang lenses have been discussed as problematic AF many times before though, so I would consider offloading it.

If you're going to be stopping down though, past f4 ish, then DSLR is generally going to perform better than most mirrorless. The A7III is not great with small aperture shooting.
