I'll get my doctor to write me a prescription for one.  (Maybe two...)

Not 100% sure of his opinion here. Kind of goes in a circle. He does not mention that this camera has 5:4x, 1.2x, 1:1x and 1.5x crops which I'm excited about. Once one gets the feel for the different crops one should be able to dial in the right crop for a given subject. I.e. a raptor with a wide wing span or a standing Egret with a long neck. Allowing you to zoom just the right amount but still retain more information than the D500 in each mode except 1:5x. In the 1:2 x you will be shooting 26mp+~. In 1.5x I think it is shooting 19.5 mp +~.

I think he likes it ! ;)

His point about most users being better served by a D500 in crop situations is fair enough.  For pros and semi-pros who can exploit the features of the D850 it looks like the "best wildlife stills camera ever".

As an interested bystander, I read it as a 45MP camera that contains a 20MP D500 within it !

I look forward to seeing the actual "silent" mode  in action (as opposed to the "quiet" mode), and I'd also like to see the focus peaking feature.
