Otaraka: A9 and 1DX both 26, D5 was 23.

Not sure that ends up being any difference from a statistical perspective, so Im not much use I guess, but it says I would be happy with any of them which is nice I guess. This isnt exactly scientific of course, simply having all 3 pictures visible at once means a different kind of rating will result than by rating each picture separately, there are slight differences in expression that can have an impact etc. But interesting if you do find a difference I guess.

So you gave 75 points, where there were only 72 to give.....?

A Nikon shooter for the last 40 years: Canon 27, Sony 26, Nikon 19 points.... I already knew, but this is a confirmation that I don't like the Nikon jpegs-out-of-camera.
Luckily I shoot Raw :-)

mosc: "I loved working with the files because of the insane amount of detail captured..." which we can clearly see from a 1600x1200 downsample. Thanks DPR!

not much detail in the top part of the white helmet (photo 4)......if you don't get your exposure right, 100+mp don't help much.

goactive: After being a working photographer and video producer for over 27 years it has become so over saturated no days that you work is looked at less as with so many websites full of images it is just overwhelming to anyone even start looking at images. To get into photography nowadays you need to really want to create your own images for yourself that you will enjoy and hang on the wall but after you fill the walls then what. If you want to get into it to make money shooting I would suggest look for a different job and keep photography as your hobby for fun. With the over saturating in the business its harder than ever to make a good living at it, most photographers are making less than 1/2 to 1/3 of what we used to make even 6 years ago and things cost more now. Lots of staff photographers have been let go from jobs all around the world including large newspapers and magazines. Many people now shot for almost nothing and in the end, are not making a living at it. Do it for fun and enjoy it

Exactly my advise when parents ask me 'my kid wants to be a photographer, what should he/she do?'

Go study something that'll give you a decent jod, and take as many pics as you can in your free time......

SergeAP: The lack of built-in flash on D850 ??? This option proved itself very well on the D800-810 especially as simple and very easy wireless system to work with additional light sources. Very bad... I'm upset!

I'm glad....

digilux: I've done this comparison myself, after almost 30 years of working with Apple, I've reached a point where maybe, just maybe I should give Windows a chance.....
Sorry NO, keyboard, trackpad, ssd-speed (read/write) and last but not least the display make the Macbook a true winner over the Dell. So, okay it's more expensive, but what's the Dell worth in 3 years from now? Besides, the difference is not even a days work.....

For photo editing, how on earth could you not choose a desktop?

martuyn: No thanks, I'll buy a car.

Where can you get good car that will work for years with little need of repair for 6000usd?......come over to Holland, it will buy you TWO cars!

I got a '99 Nissan Pathfinder 3 years ago for 3200 euros..it still runs as new and never let me down so far.......

Rutgerbus: Need to level out the horizon! But great picture it is!

It does seem like the horizon isn't level, but I guess it's because the photo is off balance. The right side of the image is heavier,therefor the photo looks like it's tilting over to that side......

So, assuming I shoot f5.6-f11 all the time, should I trade in my Sigma 35mm f1.4
for this 24-70?

even my daughter could have made some nice pics with her iPhone in a setting like this.....the real challenge would have been: here's a space, a model, a background some gear and a (flash)light package, go ahead and put everything together and shoot!
