Andrei C: Why so much hate ? I think the photos look great. What do you expect from a big zoom range, to shoot like a prime ? :)

A lot of "photographers" are more about pixel peeping than actual photography and really seem to care more about sharpness in 100% crops than actual images. Clearly the lens is capable of producing great images in a variety of circumstances.

I'd rather it be f/1.8 or f/2 to reduce the size. I prefer small lenses on my E-mount camera. Large lenses diminish the size advantage of the camera. That said I love my 30 1.4.

Amazing work.

That is one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard. There is no way that people go for this in enough numbers for it to be a profitable enterprise.

User8323047552: I would love to see more pancake lenses for mirror less cameras. This just doesn't balance well an a small body.

The Sony isn't good though. I'd like to see a 16 2.8 that is high quality.

I'd rather see a 16/2 or 2.8 from them. I like small and light primes to pair with a light compact body.

tangbunna: where is OIS/VR/OSS/VC... etc ?

VR is not that vital for a 16mm 1.4 lens on a modern camera.

If this is a match for the quality of the 30mm Sigma 1.4C then it'll be a dynamite lens.

Lassoni: Tamron does what Nikon doesn't.

Nikon has a 70-300, an 80-400, and a 200-500. So three zooms that significantly overlap with the range of this.

JMCO: Many do not realize that the α700 had a weather sealed body. Sony warned that it was not to be considered such but, you could see the rubber seals when taken apart. Many photographers used it in the dust and rain with no problem. As long as the lenses were also sealed!

I exposed mine to some truly bad conditions and it never missed a beat.

Most of the best photos I've ever taken were on an A700. I really loved using that camera. The ergonomics were fantastic, the build quality was very good, it was very responsive, and the image quality up to about ISO 800 was easily good enough for great 20x30 prints. I also beat the hell out of mine. It went with me all around the world and dealt well with dust, dirt, sub zero temperatures, and all kinds of weather. Never gave me the slightest bit of trouble.

Sonyshine: The D850 is Nikon’s big old petrol guzzling limo compared to Sony’s sleek Tesla. It is the last fling of the bulky old tech dslr industry.

Nikon should be moving forward with exciting new camera technology. Not more iterations of an old dinosaur.

Yes it will be a great camera but it goes to prove that Nikon’s days are numbered if they cannot develop new, innovative and fresh cameras.

What an absurd bit of trolling. What matters with cameras is result quality and this camera is worldclass when it comes to that. Sony has some good mirrorlees bodies but they don't have a body and lens system combination that can match this and won't for a long time.

Betico: Nikon still can't design a decent battery door. Not even on a $3000 camera. I think it is about time the Chinese rescue this ailing company and put on it some new energy and "savoir faire" in it, just as they did with Volvo. Otherwise Nikon will not survive the in the coming two or three years years.
BTW a $3000 camera will never save Nikon.
Another possibility for Nikon is to be taken over by Sony. Sony will continue making the D1, branded as Sony D1, and discontinue the rest of the Nikon range including this new D850.

You know this is a hell of a camera when people hating on it have to resort to attacking the battery door.

Mirrorlessy19: D850 : 1015 g
A7riii : less than 625 g

The problem for Sony is still that Nikon has a much more expansive lens lineup. Particularly with longer lenses. Sony won't get many pros to switch without better native lenses. So far as people who've invested into a system, the current Nikon and Canon bodies are so good that its hard to justify spending thousands on new lenses just to switch to Sony. And yes I know that adaptors allow you to use all sorts of lenses with the Sony Mirrorless bodies.

I wish I'd seen this before placing a big order with them today. I'd have ordered elsewhere.

Good. Anyone given the level of power that police officers have needs to be held accountable and in too many jurisdictions they aren't and citizens are abused as a result. I'm all for increasing training, pay, and accountability for police officers. In my experience most officers are responsible public servants but I know a lot of people who were mediocre bullies who spent a lot of time in trouble who ended up becoming cops or deputies because a field that gives someone so much power over other people with what is often limited accountability is incredibly attractive to people with that type of personality. The more ways we have to weed out the bad apples the better.

jrobbie3: What?? Why, Spend your money wisely; buy a used D700 or D3 if you can afford it. Why spend your good money on point and shoot cameras that normally end up in the beyond repair bin in short order. If you are a Canon shooter try a 5D Mk III. Everything else is "upgraded bells and whistles".

Absurd. A D700 is a decade old at this point.

Fotoni: Weird focal length range. I would prefer 43-135mm zoom which include both normal and portrait range . Wide views can be done with panorama and it looks more natural, if not too much motion between shots. You also get tons of resolution.

I don't think the focal range is weird but I would love a 50-150 again. I'd prefer it to my 70-200.

Joed700: It's nice to see that Nikon has put so much effort into their APS-C sensors and bodies. I wish they would have done the same thing with their FF systems. The only reason I'm not getting the D500 or alike is that there are not too many good dedicated lenses for APS-C from Nikon. Sigma have some good ones, but they are not , as always, consistent with AF performance...

To be fair a big part of the reason that Nikon doesn't offer more APS-C primes is that many of the full frame primes translate well to APSC. What would be the point of an APS-C 50mm when Nikon already has some good full frame ones and something like the 1.8G isn't expensive? Why come out with an APSC 85mm when the 85mm 1.8G is a winner? The area that Nikon could do better with is wide APS-C primes.
