D850 @ ISO 800?


I think I may have a defective D850.

Anyone has an expert opinion?

I do appreciate your help, you guys are awesome!

Compared with my D810, the D850 is obviously too grainy in my opinion at same ISO [in this case 800], under same conditions.

Took both pics of the same spot [used tripod] from my 4K 32" ASUS ProArt PA329Q monitor, using same settings:

FF [fine jpeg]: 8256x5504 [D850] / 7360x4912 [D810]

ISO 800


1/60 sec

EV 0.67


no flash

Used same lens [Nikon 28-300mm] at same aperture: 28mm.

For the purpose of this post I have cropped the same small section of each photo.

I can provide the original photos [jpegs], if anyone needs more info.

Many anticipated thanks.


Original pic on the monitor is also mine, taken with my D810.
