I do not think D850 is shipping today 😫. Sales said there was a delay is production or something and it may be a couple.of weeks. Not verified, but 😔 sadness

I found this thread on FredMiranda.com:
"As a member of Nikon Professional Services (NPS) ... your camera will ship from Nikon and arrive sometime between September 7-14, 2017."

I'm not a member of NPS, so I just hope to get my camera sometime in Sep.

I am not a member either, not yet 😋. The agent said that I should have my D850 before I leave for my trip in mid October. I Would be good with that 👍

People on that site are having much to say about the release date and quantity released. I find the hysteria mildly amusing. My preorder from B&H still shows backordered and given that many were actually on line ordering at 3am when the preorder was released there is no telling when my 9am order may ship. From what I read the sales far exceeded Nikon's expectations and that they may be filling the preorders for the rest of this year and beyond. It is just a new toy to me so all good. In fact Adobe cannot even read RAW files from the D850 yet so until that release happens I don't really care. I am looking forward to seeing what new the new technology can produce.

I got an email this morning saying we are still out of stock, we are sorry you fail at life 😁 okay I added the last part. I would really prefer the D850 over the D800 for my trip just for the iso benefits, that is all.

FWIW, Adobe released updates for ACR and DNG Converter earlier this week - including support for the D850.

FWIW, Adobe released updates for ACR and DNG Converter earlier this week - including support for the D850.

For both Lightroom and Photoshop or just Photoshop? I am reading just PS which would make the process cumbersome for me. I am usually downloading multiple images with wildlife so one at a time would be frustrating.

 

Support for the Nikon D850 and Lightroom

Today we released an update to the ACR plug-in and DNG Converter to support the new Nikon D850 proprietary format and a handful of Nikon lenses. We plan to have an equivalent Lightroom update soon. In the meantime, we understand that this represents a significant inconvenience for Lightroom customers with a Nikon D850 and ask for your patience while we work to deliver a high-quality update.  In the interim, you can use the free DNG Converter on Nikon D850 raw images prior to Lightroom import.

Lightroom has not been updated yet. This is a common pattern with new camera releases (in that LR updates lag ACR and DNG Converter updates).

In the meantime, DNG Converter has been updated. This would allow you to convert your D850 NEFs into DNG, then import the DNGs to LR. If you keep a copy of your original NEFs, you can import those into LR after Adobe releases the LR update. The point is that there is a workflow solution for early adopters of new cameras, even if it's not ideal.

Shipping delays aside, I guess we Nikon users can be happy that Nikon has hit a home run with the D850.

 

Even though I have no personal interest in obtaining one, I am glad when companies get it right and produce a popular product.

Mine is still showing backordered as well. Until they release the Lightroom update I don't really care. It would be one thing to edit a few images without Lightroom but I don't want to deal with 100's of 46mp images without it. " When did you place your order? I ordered about 8:50am on 8/24.

You could set the camera to TIFF mode - at least my D850 allows it. :P
