    No doubt you would take awesome images with it.
    I never buy a camera new, as in when introduced. I also wanted a full frame with no AA filter. Ultimately though, there is no NEED, just want.

    I don't have a problem with refurbished. Assembling some lenses before I pull the trigger on the body, but I'm not on any hurried timeline.

    It has been fun, but honestly for how I use photographs (as a hobby), the D600 would still be enough camera to do most of what I shoot, and the D800 would cover the rest. (Bigger sensor was helpful in shooting surfers at a distance.) Still, for portraits with artificial lighting, seeing that extreme detail is fun from a hobbyist/techno standpoint, but it's too much detail for most subjects. Women do not like to see their facial hair!

    Here's a detail from a couple shot:

    Attachment 300773

    The crop is from a file already reduced, so doesn't show how extreme the detail can be.
    I always use a body with an AA filter for this exact reason.

    Re: Purchasing D850 - Tell my your experience.

    I purchased my D850 last November. Be prepared to give up a vital organ. Along with the camera I purchased the grip, batteries and charger. I don't even want to tally it up.

    So, after I recovered from the sticker shock .... the images are ... simply incredible. Not much else I can add to that. Best camera I have ever had, seen or held. I just love it.

    The step focusing feature on it is just incredible. Do you like taking portraits? The detail in portraits is simply amazing. My only regret .... I didn't know the Z7 was coming, I would have very much have liked to make hat comparison before I dropped $5 on the D850 and all the do-dads. As good as the D850 truly is, the Z7 and Z mount is the future. I am wondering if I should have gone that route. R&D efforts moving forward will all happen for that line.

    However, I do not regret one minute with the D850. It is simply a pleasure to use.
