Official release of Nikon D850

45MP BSI sensor, 4k video, 7/9fps and cheaper than 5D mk 4. Certainly looks impressive.

Everything canon should and could have put into  the 5d mark iv but didnt because they are stingy..aside from the 8k timelapse and stacking thing.

Too bad you need to purchase a D5 battery for the grip to get 9 frames a second.

Great news! Hopefully Canon will consider lowering prices for 5D IV a tiny bit to keep competition at bay.
All I need is my 5D IV. I win with Canon mid to long term in many ways.  Competition is good for us consumers.

This is a brilliant camera for Nikon especially in light of the negative press they have received of late.
An excellent feature set at a killer price.

Clearly a scary competitor for Canon. Lucky it doesn't take EF lenses.  ;)

My first impression was somewhat impressed by the 9 frames per second, but I'd guess the majority of people with D5 batteries are gonna be choosing their D5 for high speed assignments anyway.

Will be curious to see what kind of frame rate the 5ds2 ends up with now, since the 5DS shoots higher resolutions than the d850 while still only using compact flash. I could see a Cfast 5DS2 shooting similar speeds even with like 75 megapixels.

So in the same tradition of grumbling that CR generates over what Canon cameras don't have, what's this one lacking?

What an lovely body.

What would I like to see in an coming Canon competitor too:

4k & 8k timelapse
Slow Motion - capture Full HD 1080p at up to 120 fps
Tilting LCD Touchscreen
Silent Shooter -users can shoot in complete silence with live-view
Widest and Brightest Optical viewfinder
Phenomenal Battery Performance - 1,840 shots at full resolution or approximately 70 minutes of video
Illuminated Buttons !
Focus Stacking !
Focus Peaking

And the price.... (that is rumored about 3800€)


Well done Nikon!

How long is it since I heard 7fps described as 'astoundingly fast'?
That whole first paragraph is filled with so many superlatives, that if it were not Nikon I would immediately walk the opposite direction.

It looks like a great competitor to the 5D4 and the one negative I can see is that it has only 15 points sensitive to f8. Many fewer than the 5D4.

It looks like it is cheaper than the 5D4 but is $200 really that significant?

7 and 9 FPS is impressive considering its pushing 45mp! 51 frame buffer of 14-bit lossless RAW capture. Wonder how long the write times will be!

The 5DMKIV is rated at 17/21 and 1DXMKII 59/73 frame buffer. There must be come powerful processing in the D850.

Oh, dear. If they can't even print the Nikon logo properly, what will happen to their brand spanking new release

Jack

Would like a flip screen and GPS but otherwise this thing seems like a dream "no compromise" camera.

Been waiting for the 5d mark iv to drop in price a little before I pull the trigger to replace my 5D3 but I can't help but lust after this one.  I would easily drop 5K if I could get this with an EF mount.

Next up 85 1.4L or sigma 85 art

Just after I bought my 1DX2, Park Cameras in UK had their yearly open days. First 6 customers who wanted one.....£2500.

As I said on another thread, Canon will answer this. Oh yeah, in 2021 with a 5D Mark V with:

- 36 Megapixels, with a mandatory AA filter so you don't get all the sharpness
- Some improved video, but some last century codec to screw you
- 8 fps (as long as the battery is full or almost)
- No BSI sensor, who would need that?
- No stabilised sensor too
- an ancient regular SD slot
- Some super innovative feature like the dual pixel raw that does absolutely nothing usable
- No AF auto adjustment, if you're missing focus it's your fault, never the camera/lens

MAYBE we get a tilting screen and focus stacking...MAYBE

Canon didn't see my money with the 5D4 and with the way things are going I might still keep my 5D3 for a very long time.

I'd make the move today if I could trade my gear for equivalent Nikon lenses and flashes without losing too much money.
