    I very strongly doubt that.

    You wont get one of those because those are really early ones. They simply break down easily.

    The oldest to try are from Nikon are the D3/D700 generation.

    I dont know the point when Canon DSLRs became really reliable, though.



    I am fairly sure we're supposed to be on a lonely island or something. Selling is not an option. And since your lenses and camera dont match neither is photographing.



    I agree that will be the problem.

    You obviously don't understand. I don't have much in the area of skills. While my Diesel Dodge ran hot shot was how I made money. Now the only three places that EVEN called back (or emailed) were able to local grocery store at 5 miles away, Kroger at roughly 25 miles and a place called Favor which as far as I can tell is a shop.and deliver app for pretty much anything. My current truck is a 99 Chevy 3/4 ton that gets maybe 16 mpg.
    And I can't count on it staying reliable.

    Therefore an old camera is about all I'll ever be afford. And of course an adapter or three to use good old glass.

    I'd take a D5.

    And then I could possibly be happy with the 28mm 1.4E, and 105mm 1.4E

    Might as well drive the Rolls Royce or Bentley over the MB or BMW...

    I don't like shooting without a grip.
    I don't like shooting a camera not really designed for shooting (pretty much every camera on the market)
    I don't need the MP of a D850, but I want the body of it over a D750 (mainly the viewfinder)
    I don't want a camera with two different types of memory card slots.

    having wifi and/or BT would be nice, but I really have no use for 44mp.


    the Sony A9 and two similar lenses would be another option for my, but I wasn't the biggest fan of the AF on my a6000 vs. a dslr, I never quite got used to it and missed so many easy shots due to it.

    in reality I go with two bodies. The 850 drives the 105, the 500 drives the fish. because i do not zoom two bodies are my way to go.

    i sold the D600, mbd14 and sell the d3 and 1.4/24 ... My bag is still full of great glass apart from the two lenses

    @Braineack I love the look of the D850 files. Megapixels are nice to have. Not that I need them, but my computer is fast enough and the pixel density is the same as the D500, so technique is the same. Very rewarding results.

    I hate SD Cards. Why do the bodies not have both XQD cards? bollocks
