Re: D850 vs D500 a few more D850 shots

I've now shot both fairly extensively (d850 with grip and battery for 9fps) and sold the D500.
As a mostly prime shooter, essentially it gives me the "reach" of the D500 - with exactly the same MP, but the advantages that go along with FX when i can fill the frame.
For sports it allows me to not end up with cut off arms,legs and heads when the action gets closer, but the cropping power for distant work.
For wildlife a similar thing, allowing for environmental shots and also detail via cropping.
For BIF the extra field of view is really helpful too.
Only reason i'd go a D500 is for the cost, and weight if you need the FPS in a smaller body.
