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

Your mileage may vary, but I consider the pop-up flash to be an advantage over the D850. It can function as a Commander for the line-of-sight Creative Lighting System flashes (SB800, SB900, SB910 etc) if you are invested in these units. The D850 requires a separate trigger on the hotshoe, or replacing older Speedlights with those using the Nikon Wireless trigger system.

D810 all the way. It's completely self-contained. Put the fifty 50 or an older 24mm and you're ready for pretty much any shooting situation with a single item to manage.
