  2. Hmm, had backfocusing issues with some subjects, but felt it rude to do an AF tune! :rolleyes::rolleyes::cautious:
  3. Ya, that seemed a bit weird... as we like to say it is 10% boat and 90% sailor....

    I just love how the internet has made everybody an expert.

  4. Thom Hogan has a new blog entry from his D850 testing. It may help wash away some of the sour taste of the DP Review article (which I haven't read, btw).
  5. Not always a big fan of what Thom says but he's spot on in his blog. I skimmed the link Baywing posted but I don't know either of the authors so I devoted 0 time to read their review.

    Bottom line for me is if D850 AF works as well as the D500 AF I'm set and don't need to read any reviews...and from what I've seen so far it does. I never bought into the "it's the same as a D5" BS (other issues such as VF blackout times affect AF performance but the D500 & D850 don't share all the same features as the D5). But, the D500 AF system (and now the D850 as well) works for me. :)
