Personally, I'd prefer to have a D500 next to a D850 as 'real' action camera, since it provides more fps (out of the box, so without the need to spend lots of additional money on grip, batteries and charger) and has wider viewfinder AF coverage. And produces 'real' raw files with all data still intact, not downsampled ones like the D850.
Yeah I see, but if the D850 is in DX mode the files are already normal D500 size (approx) so no need to carry another Dx body, but yes you would have to buy the battery grip.....however, that should be smaller lighter and cheaper than two cameras, for only 1 Fps less!
Or has lasts night's "booze up" finally created a vacuum where my brain used to be? :o
