I moved from D810 to D850 - I still wish I had my D810 to be honest -

I like the D850 but feel (and have said it a few times) I find the ISO performance on the D810 better between 400-1000

I bough the D850 for wifi and touch screen, but barely use either. Also the extra resolution you barely notice or can see

Both are great in their own right, but if i was buying now and knew what I do now - I'd get D810 and save a few bucks

That's interesting...The only thing I hate about the D810 is the cheesy pop-up flash

Do you think a lot of people have a similar experience with the D850 -- wishing they'd stayed with the D810? It's a lot cheaper now! I have to say, many of my D810 images are wonderful -- and somewhat less digital feeling than my D850. I realize that's heavily subjective and might just require a bit more work in post. I use C1 20 Pro.

Not sure as I am sure for some other just want new things – There’s other improvements on the D850, like AF - for me I cant see a drastic difference to the D810 - but other may....

I agree regarding the flash, I never used it on the D810 (in fact I don’t use any form of flash ever - Natural light for me only thank you)

Agree, its subjective for sure, I use DXO photolab 3 and Nik collection but i found my processing of both the D810 and D850 pretty much the same. The apparent increase of Dynamic Range on the D850 isn’t that prevalent to my eyes - Again its my thoughts only....

Id like another D810 just to put side by side with eh D850 - Hmmmmm
