Early this morning, Nikon formally announced the full details of their newest DSLR, the Nikon D850. Most of the specs seem to match what others predicted, and are exactly in line with what I wanted to see!
I’ve always been an “all-purpose” photographer. I like photographing landscapes, wildlife, and the occasional sporting event. The D850 looks like it will deliver the goods for photographers like myself. From my perspective, the new Nikon D850 may be the only camera a Nikon enthusiast really needs. This camera is going to be really good at just about everything from landscapes to weddings to sports. For faster shooting and higher ISO ranges, the Nikon D500 (DX) and Nikon D5 (FX) are still going to be excellent options, but neither of those cameras appear to be the all-around killer DSLR that the D850 looks to be.
Yesterday, Nikon announced that development is underway for the long-awaited successor to the wildly popular D810 FX DSLR, the Nikon D850.
Other than a beautifully produced time-lapse video and the mention of 8k video capability, details on the new D850 were particularly vague:

Right now, the D810 is essentially the finest Nikon camera I’ve used, but there are a few features that I’d like to see improved. After using the D810 for the last three years and recently using the D500, here’s what I’d really like to see in the D810 successor: Continue reading Nikon D850 Speculation Thread→
