Trying to get one on pre-order, but waiting for a trade-in price for my D810!

Got one.

After 11 years with Canon, it is very strange indeed, but its a great camera, done 2 studio sessions with it,
but hope to get out and try it out in natural light soon. I think I pretty much got used to it now, the familiar (from the Canon) dedicated ISO button,
and the joystick for selecting AF points made it a lot easier to get used to it

Rated the Camera to 9/10 because the Menu system is in my opinion not up to the cameras standard, and is missing some AF functionality compared to my previous Canon 5Ds. - But AF performance is as far as I can tell at least as good, if not even better as the Canon's.

I had some luck, because someone for some reason declined his copy, and luckily I could get my hands on that one instead of waiting for one maybe till next year.

So I am a happy chap, now need to get some more lenses. :)

Congrats! I'd love to have one but I'm not sure if I'd want to replace the D4 with it.

Got it. Was lucky enough to place an order a few hours after they went on sale. Going from a d700 to this. It's a different beast, that's for sure. Going from 12 MP to nearly 50 is a lot more demanding on your lenses.

I don't think I would want to replace a D4 with it either. The D4 is a proper pro camera, whereas I still feel that the D8** range is prosumer despite the price!

I was late placing my order, so I am fortunate to get it before Christmas. You are right about the demand on lenses. I found only my 85 prime was sharp enough on the D810, so 46 MP will definitely test the lens out!

I was wondering how you found a D850 "on sale"; then I realized you were probably just saying "after they were available for purchase." lol

Any feedback on this testing? I am hoping my Sigma ART 35 and 85 would perform well on a D850!

I know it sounds crazy, but I have hardly used the camera since getting it. However, the few shots I have taken with the 85 f/1.4 have been exceptionally sharp. I would think that your Sigma ART lenses would perform really well on the 850!

I think I will soon bite the bullet and get one.
In the past few months I have been doing mostly video with a Panasonics GH4 and drone with a Phantom 4 Pro.
But recently I restarted doing a lot of timelapses and the GH4 really don't cut the mustard.
I crave the resolution and ISO capabilities of the D850

I have a question regarding the price:
Here in the UK I see a huge difference going from £2600 (srl hut, digitalrev store) to £3500 in regular stores.
Is this some sort of grey import or illegal activity?
