Joed700: Besides the sensor tests, I think DXO Mark should test some of Leica's legendary lenses. It would be interesting to see if these expensive lenses can hold up to their reputations.

@HowaboutRaw - my question is hardly trolling. Anyone with any common sense would ask the same question before investing into such expensive system. I for one has been eyeing the Leica system for years, but there’s hardly available data on the internet, and I don’t know why DXO Mark doesn’t test Leica lenses. I’ll check out lens rental and see what they have.

Joed700: I think the question is not about which camera is better, but rather which system has the lenses that can completely resolve all that MP? Based on the available data, neither Canon nor Nikon has lenses that can take the full advantage of their high MP sensors per DXO Mark sharpness results. Sony, even with their limited lenses, is the only brand that has the most lenses that can completely resolve their 42 MP sensors.

@MrHollywood - I think you misunderstood my point. I’m not implying that the D850 couldn’t produce fantastic photos. Gosh, a 12MP sensor can make beautiful pix. I’m merely stating that the current Nikon lenses are unable to maximize the power of the 46MP.

I’m regards to the DXO Mark results, I don’t just read about them. I actually did some of my own comparisons with my own lenses, and based on my own observations, I say DXO results are legitimate. If you look at my profile and look in my previously owned lenses, you’ll see that I tried a variety of lenses from different makers. I’m standing by the DXO numbers unless something or someone that can produce solid evidence to proof otherwise.

@osv - I think you hit the jackpot here. Sony has the latest lens design and therefore has the advantages. Both Nikon and Canon need to work on the R&D and come up with better lenses like Sigma....

@MrHollywood - "silly lens tests..." DpReview makes reference to DXO Mark all the time. If that's your take on that, you really shouldn't be coming to this website and read anything at all...

Hard Truth: I would never buy the tiny Sony a7R III. That must be made for small Asian hands.

@PankajDubey - you forgot to mention that Asians also make computers, smartphones, clothes and other things for everyone around the world. Perhaps Hard Truth should go naked because most likely he's wearing underwear made by Asian hands...

@ beavertown - Way more reliable than you for sure! You have provided absolutely nothing to back anything you said here so far. Not even one source to prove anything for that matter. Go figure...

@randomguy - let’s compare the numbers of sources we have on hand here. I have at least 4 sources to back my claim at which 3 of the sources are incredibly reliable. You have only one! Yes, you too made a claim that my info is false, so therefore you need to proof or shut it.

In addition, a salesperson from my local camera store had also informed me about this months ahead before this article came out. A Sony rep gave her a heads up....

BTW, why are you even on this website? This website is fake. Did you know that?

@beavertown - what’s funny is that you have no reference what so ever to proof anything you said...I cited at least three sources...

Joed700: Although I shoot Nikon, I think the Sony a7rIII is a better camera because it has a higher ISO performance plus the ibis. It means more keepers for me.

@ HFML - I would agree with your scenario. However, pros don’t shoot like casual shooters. We don’t plan and things just happen spontaneously, and that’s when ibis comes in handy. Yes, tripods and VR lenses are readily available, but ibis is more flexible with just about any lenses. Any yes, I do shoot at 1/15 shooting causal portraits of my little nephew using only available light on the street right next to a Xmas tree. I got really sharp pictures..,had I set up my tripod, that moment I wanted to capture would be gone. This is not a put down of the technical quality of the D850, but more about being flexible and most importantly, having more keepers and opportunities.

@ randomguy - I’m still waiting for you to cite your source...? Even if you discredited my sources, I would still say that it’s very unlikely Sony would provide sensors for the D850. There was an article that came out less than a year ago that clearly stated that Sony will no long supply pro level sensors to it’s competitors. Why would Sony changed their decision so quickly to made a higher MP sensor for Nikon instead of the a7rIII?

@randomguy - the D850's sensor is made by an Israeli company confirmed by Tony N. and the Angry photog. Can you cite your source to verify your claim?

Correction, the D850 does not have a Sony sensor in it. It's a fact!

@ armandino - "D850 is...outstanding in low iso" I would have to disagree. I own both the D810 and D750. The D750 is really good at low iso compared to the D810. I don't push my iso pass 3200 on my D810; it is never my indoor camera choice...now that the D850 low light performance is even lower than the D810, so go figure.

Also, you probably have not used VR lenses or camera with ibis. With the ibis and VR lenses combo, the a7riii is going to eat the D850 alive. I'd already tested this myself when I compared the a7rii vs D810 a few years back. Every lenses with VR I ever owned gave me more keepers at 1/15 most of the time. VR and ibis are a must for high MP bodies. It's that simple.

sh10453: What's the big difference between the DC and the DG line of Art lenses?
The 30mm F1.4 DC HSM Art ($499 Retail Price), while
the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($899 Retail Price)

@Santafebill - agreed in terms of exposure, but the DOF is not the same as f/1.4 on FF.. many people thinks that they will get the nice shallow depth of field when they see f/1.4 not realizing that they are actually getting more DOF (f/2) something very important if subject isolation is important to the user.

They are not the same lenses. The 30mm f/1.4 = 42mm f/2.1 in FF Nikon body and 48mm f/2.2 in a FF Canon body. The 35mm f/1.4 is actually a 35mm f/1.4 in any FF body.

Matt Granger has just released two videos showing the D850 was not capable of buffering 50 shots on continuous shooting mode as claimed by Nikon. Anyone with the D850 can verify his claims?
