More importantly, we were told flat out to expect 'D5 levels of performance' from the D850. How about bringing the D500 alongside with the test between D5 and D850 AF performance? Of course the D5 is going to be better at high-movement AF ... that's its specialty. With both the D5 and even the D500, we've become accustomed to being able to initiate 3D Tracking on a subject's eye for a tight headshot, and have the camera track it remarkably well as either the camera or subject moves. Here are some of the most popular Nikon F Mount Lenses on Camera Decision: You may have already made your decision about which camera suits better for your needs and your budget so far but in case you wonder how we rated Nikon D850 and Nikon D5, below you can find their scores in five different aspects. they even gathered a bunch of photographers for promo and told them to expect d5 levels, it's all over the internet. The lighting is usually fantastic as well. Looking for a Nikon D810 vs Nikon D5 comparison? No one said it was. Ebrahim, did they say the D850 uses the exact same AF processor chip of the D5? it's not the peoples fault to expect similar AF performance. Sigma's new primes promise very good performance and light weight, when paired with L-mount and Sony E-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. I shoot professional auto racing, air shows and other fast moving, sometimes erratic subjects, primarily with a Nikon D5. Snapsort compares the Nikon D5 vs the Nikon D810 to find out which is the winner. D500 has to flap and move a lighter and smaller mirror / shutter mechanism. Of the two cameras that we are comparing, D850 has scored 100, 12 points higher than D5. I am still getting one... http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/dslr-cameras/d850.html. Canikon's favorite way of making you upgrade. It's a factor to consider and the files should be downscaled to 20mp before evaluation for an equal comparison. On the other hand, wouldn't they be accused of pandering to Nikon if they didn't check their core marketing claims? We can get back at this issue one year later and you'll discover that the D850 never became a famous high ISO fast action camera LOL- No 1 stop better DR- No 1 stop better high ISO- No D5-level AF. Am I the only one who finds the Matt Granger YouTube videos really creepy? Also, it's hardly fair to the D850 - it starts having to track with the face in shade with poor contrast. When we first reported on the alleged ransomware attack back in August, Canon said it was 'investigating the situation.' And the D850 is primarily a still photography camera.

Its body is 14mm narrower, 35mm shorter and 13mm thinner than Nikon D5. Does Nikon claim the D850 AF is just as good as the D5? DPR, Nikon said D850 has additional processor to handle AF calc. I'll probably never even use that $3300 "prosumer" camera. He did show some images that he said proved his point, but he offers only a brief glimpse with a crappy video. I already told you. Kinda sad people have to defend nikon with arguments "but 3000 doesn't cut for pro body, clearly you have to pay more (because nikon says so)".

On the other hand, please keep in mind that Max sensor resolution is not the only determinant of resolving power. You can print your images larger or crop more freely. Easy to google for their experience. What is the objective here? I suspect the gap in the test would be smaller if the d850 had it's battery grip. the rider moves smoothly from right to left while heading towards the camera.

Earlier this week we published our samples from the new Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN when mounted on a Sony body. Why test the one AF no one would use? If there really is a problem it is probably repairable through a firmware update. Nikon confirmed this already in an interview, that the D850 have the same DR as the D810 but a higher resolution, so it's a good job by Nikon anyway. @ Dante Birchen Love the D4S and the D5....both are so much better than the D850 for fast action low-light high ISO photography :-D, @ Dante Birchen The ignore list button should be on the menu bar :-DYou can find it there, looking forward to it :-D, If only they made a Df that had good AF and video option, nobody would have to buy D5 for high iso performance, @ Lassoni Yeah, unless they need the FPS....The Df2 is probably going to be delayed because of the mirrorless stuff going on...What will Nikon's next move be...nobody knows. 3D Tracking on the left nailed focus in this instance, but D25 on the right nailed focus more reliably, more often. They have the same AF system but not the same capabilities or performance. Take photos or videos or just to measure indiv performance? 12 FPS with full AF/AE and a stable VF image with much less blackouts. Downscaling will help, but it isn't the same as shooting lower resolution natively. VIEW COMPARISON ADD MORE. Like EVER? In short, the Nikon D5 (B&H / Amazon), shines in terms of the look of the high-ISO noise in the images â the grain is even, and not as distinct as in any of the equivalent ISO settings of the other cameras. And should those who are new to the ecosystem forego the cheaper body? The improvements you tout in the D5 are unnecessary for sports and photojournalists to get the job done. I can only guess it's something to do with how light behaves in the mirror box - different coatings, mirrors, reflections off the sensors etc - or else the cameras' processing powers. @Carey Rose, how many copies of D850 are you testing for your review?

Here is Nikon press release on D500 from DPR site: https://www.dpreview.com/news/8529664044/here-at-last-nikon-announces-d500Here is the extract: "To keep pace with the action, the D500 is fitted with the same AF system as the Nikon D5, the Multi-CAM 20K AF sensor module, with a separate dedicated processor for AF function".Their marketing group needs some help. ISO-1600 and above)-much faster FPS and better buffer-faster AF system in order for the D5 to shoot at 12 FPS the AF speed algorithm is slightly tweaked on the D5 so that it can keep up with the 12 FPS with full AF/AE and stable VF image. Web traffic: that's what it's all about. Anybody who tries to convince himself that the D850 at 7FPS can perform at the same level is seriously kidding himself. As a photographer, the D700 has the best 'functionality' of a photographer's camera. You use 9 point, 25 point, or spot focus, not 3D. Funny how people take marginal differences to tell us that this camera kills that one. I was thinking of trading the D500 for D850 thinking that it'll have the D5 capability plus other D850 benefits.

Even though the D850 comes with that excellent AF selection joystick, sometimes we find it preferable to let the camera do some of the work for us. I bought the D500 just for the AF itself. In the first low-light test, he notes some hesitation: the AF point occasionally lagged behind the subject before catching up (though at 3:00, where he says the D5 does not exhibit this behavior, it looks like the D5 also hesitates a bit, but perhaps not as severely). The D5 is also capable of getting that ISO-100 landscape or studio shot without any problems. How many D5s were tested? Anyways the camera has been crippled. Let's talk about the most likely scenario raw shooters would be using: 14-bit Lossless Compressed NEF with the fastest available cards. With the D850, we were able to get a ton of keepers using 3D Tracking, but sometimes, when we looked through our bursts and found that one perfect moment, it would be slightly out of focus because the AF point had jumped from one part of the rider or motorcycle to another. But let's get back to the subject, and I'll give you a fig leaf. Duff AF calibration might be a part of it, but I wonder about what else is going on in the mirror box - differences in adjustment and reflectivity of the mirrors, distance between mirror and PDAF sensor, how the PDAF sensor is housed, reflections off the sensor etc. vs. Nikon D800. at 3:15 he says " I like your hat" then walks away and says, " not really". Just think, "I never measured tracking or MP count". @ ThrillaMozilla lol...not only the price tag but also official specs like for instance 12 FPS with full AF/AE and a stable VF image with less blackouts vs only 7 FPS lol...The D5 embarrasses the D850 at:-much better high ISO -much better dynamic range at high ISO (approx. vs. Nikon Z6.

So in this regard the D5 is a more versatile DSLR than what the D850 can ever be in my opinion. The D850 on the other hand can't necessarily nail that high ISO low-light action shot because of the much weaker buffer slower AF/AE and much slower FPS at only 7 FPS. Day and night! @tbcass Perhaps you didn't read my comment properly.
