The Nikon D850 was announced tonight. With an extremely high-resolution 45-megapixel sensor, 7-plus fps shooting, and a ton of professional improvements to its predecessor, this really is the camera to do it all — and the price is on the low end of previous estimates at $3,296.95. Pre-orders are now up and are promised to begin shipping in September with free expedited shipping.
The D850 is Nikon's newest flagship full-frame DSLR. While some might argue the D5 still holds that title, it really only holds the title of most expensive at this point. In reality, the D5 is now best described as a high-end specialty sports camera when compared to the D850, which is suited for just about everything else including landscapes, fine art, sports, portraiture, wedding and event work, and more.
