D800/D810 or D850 - help me make a call?
2

I enjoy mirrorless and have a Sony, but after selling my D850 body I instantly regretted it There are times when I would much prefer the Nikon body, like in the studio, or when the weather is iffy.

My Sony rig is an R4 and unfortunately -- for my wallet -- it's the only body I actually think is up to snuff among the Sonys. But for Nikon they've been making great bodies for years!

I do lifestyle, slowed-down portraits, studio stuff. No sports, nothing too fast.

So my calculus is around the higher-mp FX bodies. I've had the D810 and enjoyed it, but never the D800. Of course, these bodies are selling for pretty cheap now while the D850 is really holding its value. I can't afford the Sony and D850.

If I'm happy with relatively few focal points, I don't think I need the D850 when my MP bumpage is only like 10 MPs anyway...

I use ART glass (the 35 and 50 and a 28 1.8G lens). What are the differences between the D810 and D800 for my uses? I would expect similar IQ and experience...Any reason to definitely get the D810? Thanks!

Nikon D850
