People seem almost obsessed with it.

huge marketing campaign! Nikon needed to be saved, so... here comes the savior! loool You can even find people who never had a D850 in his hands, praising their abilities!

tgchan: Am I looking and interpreting it wrong or PENTAX K-1 sensor kicks its a*se (in terms of quality/noise)?

and it's funny those little tricks, like resizing the D850 files to the size of the D810, so it looks sharper! lol

Nikonandmore: :
So, every time a new FF camera comes out, here come the unleashed comments "wow.. its near medium format quality".

I've been hearing the lavish stupidity of new FF cameras being near "MF quality" for well over 10 years now. And here we still are. Is shocking that in a decade some people haven't taken a couple of minutes off from their "busy pro photographers life" to ACTUALLY look at some ACTUAL MF images and grasp that it's a whole different ballgame.

The D850 is as near MF quality as mobile phones sensors are to "..DSLR quality", which now has become the new idiotic marketing hype.. from Apple to Samsung to Huawei and their "Leica partnership". Somewhere along the road, all notion of reality that actually resembles reality, got lost.

So, if DSLRs are now "near MF quality" & if mobile phones are now "near DSLR quality", I guess it's time to do the equivalence & assume the new world order that mobile phones must now too be "near MF quality"!

We life in fantastic times!

Most people not even know what a MF is, they just of a think it is kind of a big FF, or a FF with many many mpixels, so... If this has 42... 😂

Och Elo: The high ISO performance from D7500/D500 looks very impressive to me. I have not bothered directly comparing APS-C to FF high ISO in a while, but using D750 as a benchmark, I see generally better high ISO performance from the FF sensor, but does not seem to be a full stop. For example, to my eyes ISO 12800 on a D7500 looks slightly better than ISO 25600 on a D750.

To those that may have used both cameras (say D500 vs D750), does this mirror real world results? FF giving maybe slightly less than 1 stop of low light advantage now?

D7500 his awsome in DR, almost equal to the D500 and even better then other FF models. Check this : http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm
Or check DXOmark values.

IdM photography: DPReview should give separate final scores for photo and for video... Some photographers won't ever shoot any video ... and some others (videographers) will buy the camera only for video...

agree, and we are talking about cameras, NOT camcorders, so that changes a lot your conclusions, specially when the Cons are almost all about video aspects.

It will cost like what? $2800? Like the D810? Or it will be something insane like the D810A?

neatpicture: finally, pop up flash is gone like most serious cameras. About time. Seriously, if you are down to your pop up, might as well get the shot with your phone and leave the camera in the bag.

If you lime do much cameras without flash go buy a Canon! They have the real stuff for serious photographers 😂

tuerta photography: I'm troubled by a discrepancy between the Apple 5s chart showing how it performed as compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4's chart.

The "Summary" for each phone gave the S4 an 8.0 and the 5s an 8.1, yet if you look at the bar graphs for the 6 different categories in the ratings box, the S4 overall wins out. In fact, I even measured the pixel length of the blue lines in Photoshop and found that the S4's bars are a net 88 pixels longer. Or said differently, the average bar length for the Apple is 320 pixels across all 6 categories whereas the average bar length for the Samsung is 334 (4.4% longer), yet they somehow rank the Apple as better overall?

Unless they have some *really* weird weighting scale, the final summary scores and the bar charts are out of whack. Can we find out the details how the 8.0 and the 8.1 were calculated?

indeed! I've noticed that too. And what is strange, is that in this case, there is no Camera/video evaluation chart like in the S4. And watch the tests in good light conditions with the same ISO, to see S4 beats them all (by the way, I don't own an S4, so, I'm not defending by phone like so many do)

Compare the 1600 ISO with the 320 ISO IPHone? What kind of absurd test is this? How much IPhone paid for this test?
