I love my D850 - I couldn't have gotten this with my Z
23

I was trawling around a local wildlife refuge in search of short-eared owls and somehow this guy was hiding perfectly behind my car's A-pillar. I spotted him and had my D850 + 500 PF to my eye in less than a second. He looked at me and promptly took off.

Make no mistake, my next camera is a Z7 II and I've loved my Z6 since I bought it at release-date, but this type of shot is why I can't imagine ever getting rid of my D850. The responsiveness and rapid AF point movement just can't be beat, yet.
