Amazing
There is not much one can say what has not already been said. This camera's resolution, DR, color spectrum, sharpness is amazing. DR is better than any camera out there (includes mid format). It is a bit heavy but worth it. As far as sharpness it thumps my D750 (camera I also own and love). D750 is ...

Nikon D810 Review
It's our Editors' Choice among its professional D-SLR peers. The Nikon D810 is a high-resolution monster with incredible image quality and performance. It's expensive, but earns Editors' Choice honors

I gotta say I love my RP, haven't shot much else (did a brief stint on a Nikon d810) but its definitely more than enough for me. I primarily have been shooting events (such as clubs and raves, and yes I have actually made my money back) and it can see spectacularly in the terrible light I shoot in when paired with an f1.4 lens or a flash. Would definitely recommend for novices, amateurs, or enthusiasts as I have found this camera to be a great starting point for more serious shooting.

WOW. SHARPNESS!
Wow... I moved up from the D800 not expecting much of a change but wow... the image quality... it's so much sharper! It actually feels like a higher resolution camera. I feel like I can zoom in a lot more. There just isn't any more blur at all! All very crisp, clean images. I really like the new lay...

D850 VS D750 dxomark
Get the D810. It's still a very, very, very good camera and the shutter is designed for a MTBF of 300'000. Great colors, great depth, great detail. It will cost you about 300 more than a D750 (and another 100 go into a 64 GB CF and a 64 GB SD card, both 170/180 M/s, please), but it's also ... a class above in handling and resolution.

FE, F2, F801, D90, D610, D810 (and the F2, D610 and D810 are still in use here ;o). I bought Nikkor-Auto lenses, had them converted to AI, bought AF lenses, some AF-D, swung over to AF-S ... got rid of the AF-D and AF, replaced them with AF-S and .... I pass on the Zs. The future is mirrorless?

Nikon D810 Preview
The key features – no OLPF and all those other things that I mentioned – that’s a cool thing.. Will you be buying this?

The D810 is a winner...
Having previously owned the Nikon D90, D7000 and D700, and currently shooting the D7100, I would like to compare the D810 to these bodies, particularly the D700. Obviously, with a five star review, I am really liking my experience so far. First of all, the D810 is a very solid, well built camera, wi...

That's where the value really is right now, since all of the big brands are really pushing their newer mirrorless systems. Hit up KEH or something and look for a mid-grade DSLR from a couple of generations ago. You can even get a Nikon D810 for that price which you can use your existing lenses with (at least until you upgrade, which I'd highly recommend given how old your current lenses probably are).

Somehow I am still not getting the "Z" thingy.
Focus is fast and accurate, but like all camera and lenses addition calibration to each other pays you back with sharper images. One of the things i like most simple as it is, with the Z system is i can see directly through the viewfinder what the effects are of my changing settings. The touch screen is easy to use and faster than using the joy pad. The menu system is different but its not different in a bad way in my view.
