I'm one of about maybe 100 people on the planet who might care, but I would love to see the D850 tested side-by-side with the A99ii with similar glass:

50 1.4, 24-70 2.8, 135 1.8, 70-200 2.8 and 300 2.8--newest/best editions of each lens.

Portrait, sports, landscape battle--test with and without grips to let the D850 get to 9FPS.

Let CDS/Jake perform all tests and get a Go Fund Me page started for it.


Sony A99ii, RX-100ii, Sonnar T* 135mm f/1.8 ZA, Minolta HS 200 2.8 APO, Zeiss 24/2 ZA, Minolta 2xTC APO, HVL-F43M

Hey, I'll do all the testing you want if we can get me the cameras! ;) :)

"Nikon confirmed that the D850's sensor is entirely their own design, vs. an off-the-shelf unit from a sensor manufacturer."

Nikon just kicked Canon in the sack..this thing is a monster. 8-)

Yeah, I don't know about that. The recent Nikon made sensors (D4/D4s, D5, D500) aren't any better than their competing Canon made sensors (1DX, 1DX2, 80D)

I'm hoping it ends up being at least as good as the D810 sensor

If it is, then that's going to be a superb camera....

That's almost mandatory.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I took a look at the DR vs ISO and tossed out the 1DX as it's no better than past generation Canon sensors but the 1DX2, 5DIV, 80D do indeed match or better (D4/D4s, D5, D500). The D810 and D750 are still the top runners but this site had DR data for the D850. Not sure where its from but I included it also.

Then there is this, At ISO 100, Canon seems to beat out the D5 8/10s of a stop, which is where many would shoot if they were trying to maximize DR for a scene. Should be interesting to see the prerelease reviews/leaked files...

It depends on what you want from the sensor and the direction Nikon took. Consider Nikon's most recent FX sensor before the D850. If your main desire is low ISO DR then the D5 was a massive disappointment in comparison to the D4/D4s. The 6D2 has been getting a hammering for not improving over the 6D but the regression of the D5 sensor in comparison to the D4/D4s in the low ISO DR metric only was much worse. On the other hand the D5 looks to be a good improvement at high ISO

So while we as customers might say that an IQ improvement is mandatory, I think it is probably going to be a case of "which metric have they really improved upon?" rather than across the board improvement. I would really like to be proved wrong though and see an across the board improvement, particularly a genuine full 14 stops of DR - fully utilising the 14 bit raw file capability - not only at base ISO but well into the mid range ISO and maintain it all the way through the sensitivity range. Dreaming I know.

I'd also like to see the level of luminance noise that the 36mp sensor exhibited at 100% reduced - even at ISO 64 or 100 that 36mp sensor (A7R, D800/E/810) shows a lot of grain, no matter how well you expose the shot. It's not terribly objectionable but it looks like I would expect it to at ISO 800.

Got my hands on a couple at a launch event in Sydney a couple of days ago. A really good feeling body. I'd completely forgotten about the event that morning so didn't have my camera or a spare card so no sample photos from any of the excellent lenses on hand. Really good AF response even in some pretty poor lighting - they had some D5's there as well and the D850's didn't seem any slower to acquire or maintain lock. Felt quite a bit lighter than the D5 too. The only disappointment was that they didn't have any grips to get a feel for :(
