Re: Is the D800 worth it at this price in 2020?

I still use a D800 and I am very pleased with it.  Mine has no focus issues at all.  I know that the 800E is a bit sharper but as far as I can tell the difference is pretty subtle.  I have made prints as large as 24 X 30 from the D800 and they look great.

Sure I have thought about buying a D850 but I try not to buy new cameras all the time since  I am pretty conservative about spending money.  About a year ago I bought a Z50 to have a lighter camera for travel.  I am very happy with it even with its smaller sensor and pixel count.  I love how light it is with the 16-50  kit lens compared to the D800 with the 24-70 F2.8.
