Michiel953: A better score than my D850? Outrageous. I’m canceling my subscription to DPR with immediate effect, and will never, never visit this site again!

People, pretty sure that's sarcasm.

Both these cameras are so good it is incredible. What a time to be a shooter.

Sweet camera. Kudos to Sony. Never been a better time to be a shooter, tech wise. Heady days. Now if I were only rich.

Angrymagpie: And I'm sitting here looking at stunning photos in the photo books made by photography maestros, wondering how the IQ police in DPReview's comment section would say about these images

From a Nikon user, they look stunning. As do the D850. Well done Sony.

NexLupus: The Nikon D850 does pretty great at ISO 64 when comparing against the A7RIII with pixel shift.
The Nikon also seems to have less CA, although this would be due to the lens.

Agree. I tried to see the Sony without pixel shift, but it's not there yet.

Nice camera. Great time to be into photography.

visualenvy: Please please please someone tell me why they expect a DSLR (or any camera) to have mind reading continuous auto focus in video?

whyyyyy??? why so important? what do you REALLY need video AF for? vlogging? sports? cats? birds?

No one cares about your video if it needs continuous AF to be good... how many movies or commercials do you see that need or use AF?

Continuous video AF is for novices and this is not a novice camera... Plan your shot, plan your focus, plan your storyboard and then execute it.

And for the vloggers and cat chasers who are the only people that need/want it... use a different camera system... "but i want bokeh cuz it is bokeh".... deal with it!

When will canon offer full sensor readout? The Nikon blows the Canon away as a serious video camera.

See the video review section: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_OMIRHXynQ

How many other cameras offer full readout of the FF Sensor? With the IQ of the 46mp Sony/Nikon sensor?

How many video pro's use auto focus on any camera?

PhotoUniverse: "Subject tracking not quite up to D5 standards"

That's not a fair point.
Then, you should add that CON to every other camera!

No. Nikon actually has used same AF mode before in marketing. In the D750 and D7200.
And it still should not be considered a con. Nikon never said it will AF as well. That would be false advertising.

chipmaster: Wow, I can't believe it the D5 Nikon's flaghship bested the D850 what a surprise, LOL

Nikon only said it has the same module. Truth. They never said it would match or beat the D5.

Nikon said it has the same AF module as the D5. Nowhere do they say it is as good as the D5. It has a different shutter, blackout time.

Lee Jay: $1,700 for a fixed-lens camera. That's about three times what I'd pay, no matter how good it is.

Maybe I'll get a used one off ebay in a year or two.

It's nice.

For $1200, I would be all over it. But $1700? I can get a lightly used D810 for that.

There is no doubt it's a versatile camera with a good lens. But the comparison to DSLR ends the second you try cropping or printing large. This does not detract from the camera. As someone said above, make sure you do your cropping in the viewfinder.

mpb002: I think it is expected that this non-Nikon made sensor hit the 100 mark. All the dynamic range in the world will not make a great picture. Its a shame that it cant beat the color repro from a sensor made by a real camera company...hum... like Canon. In ten years the nameplate on a Nikon camera will probably say Fujikon..

Weak, sour grapes much?

Harvey Specter: And yet noise performance is worse than the 810, 750, etc. Wonder how much Nikon paid for these tests?

Harvey, I'm more interested in how much YOU are getting paid to troll the D850. Looking at your short history, your constant complaining about it and the fact that you don't even own a FF Nikon, yet you live in that forum. You will be gone soon enough and then back again with a new name to troll the next new Nikon.

sandy b: So it's the second best AF DSLR in the world. By a little bit. For half the price. And double the resolution. Certainly better than most of the poster's here could ever handle.

Lassoni: I don't. And Fanboy? I really don't think so, but I can see where others might. On the other hand, looking at your history, you are certainly a troll.

sandy b: D850 looks great. Almost imperceptible from the SOny IMO. But hey, that D750!

Of course it has more detail. That's not even questioned. And downsized, the D750 is still a bit cleaner. Only the D5 really beats the D750 as far as noise. I'm picking up a second one to put on the shelf, just in case that sensor goes out of production. Best camera ever for the price.
