Your favourite feature of the D850?
#74
I don't think you ever tried to shoot 9 or only 6 fps with a D850, Kaoos. AF reliability at this fps is simply not perfect, at least handheld it's very easy to accidentally aim at some wrong target.

The battery grip for the D850: 486.- francs. For the Fuji X-T2: 229.- francs. What was it you said about margins?

These two battery grips are so diifferent not only in price but also in value you get with it that your reasoning just doesn't hold. It's less so with the new grip for X-T3 - that one will not unlock many features the X-T2 only has with the grip (btw. the same with D850, the higher frame rate needs a big battery with higher voltage and higher Ah-number).

So, 112% more cost at less functionality is not "a little pricier", it's at the edge of blunt nerviness. There's no charger included, no AC power supply, no battery holder for two batteries (but two holders, one for 6×1.5 V AA types and one for EN-EL15A, none of them gives higher fps) and I would have to charge the batteries externally. And all Nikon grips feel rather cheap (to me) when it comes to dials, joystick and switches. On the contrary Fuji uses the same buttons and dials on their grip and thicker walls. Meaning, less wobble on a tripod. Which even would be less critical to Fuji, as there's no big mass of mirror slapping up and down.

I really like the D850, but when it comes to accessories, I had to learn to stay away from overpriced Nikon stuff, if possible. The grip for the D7100 I had to tape so it would fit closely to the bottom plate of the body. Things like that make me unfriendly to this kind of offers...
