Quote from: Michael Erlewine on August 24, 2017, 05:40:32 amI ordered a copy of the Nikon D850 and a couple of batteries. I would like to order the Nikon es-2 slide copier, which they mention for the Nikon D850, but I only see the Nikon es-1 slide copier for sale. Anyone know about this? Does the Es-1 work for the D850?
Quote from: NancyP on August 25, 2017, 09:08:20 pmThey must have "Bulb" setting? Yes, for $3,300.00, it would make sense to have an intervalometer, but considering that you can add that functionality for ~$50.00 with a generic wired intervalometer (mine is Vello), it is a small issue.

Quote from: BernardLanguillier on August 27, 2017, 08:16:06 pmFirst DR measurements are starting to pop-up, it would seem that the D850 has the same DR as the D810 at base ISO64.https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60033423That sounds like excellent news to me!Cheers,Bernard
Quote from: BJL on August 27, 2017, 09:53:23 pmMaybe this has already been said, but the D850 specs seem to show that Nikon can get a top-quality sensor designed and made to fit its needs, so I think we can can stop worrying that Nikon is hampered by having to settle fpr whatever second-best sensors that Sony puts in its catalog. Maybe at times Canon hampers itself by insisting too much on doing everything in-house, it of course it could always drop that if it fell too far behind in sensor fab ability: Sony would love a huge customer like Canon.
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on August 27, 2017, 10:07:56 pmI continue to strongly dispute the proposition that it would be in the best interest of Sony not to sell their best sensors to Nikon.
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on August 27, 2017, 10:07:56 pmbut there is a difference between a mobile phone sensor and one for a DSLR.
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on August 27, 2017, 10:07:56 pmIt is a bit as if they thought that Sony cameras are mostly a sensor with a box around it and if the differentiation of the sensor were a mandatory condition for their success.

Quote from: Ray on August 27, 2017, 09:56:19 pmBernard,"These are early estimates based on available NEF files but not NEFs taken specifically to the PDR protocol."Hasn't Nikon stated that at high ISOs image quality should be one full stop better than the D810? I would expect the D850 to have image quality at least equal to the D810 at ISO 64. However, an improvement at high ISOs, say all ISOs above 400, would be much appreciated.
