I have D750, weight is750 g/ 1 lb 10.5 oz.

And D850 is 915 g/ 2 lb 0.3 oz

So, it's about 6 oz difference. It does not seem much but if you have used both, did you notice difference in how long you can carry it around for someone who have attained senior citizen status?

Current discount is so tempting.

I expect to use 70-300mm zoom lens with it, as I did with D750, and it was manageable.

I spend hours at a time in 20-40 degree weather with a 70-200 2.8 on either a D750 or D850. I notice the difference. But I'm 73 years old and about to give up on all this winter stuff.
