    Hello, new to these forums, had a quick discussion question. I’m looking at either getting a Nikon D850, Canon 5D Mark IV, or the Sony A7RIII. I’m at a point where I don’t necessarily have a ton invested in any brand and trying to get a camera that will last me awhile and won’t become outdated next year. Love to hear everyone’s thoughts! Thanks!

    I enjoy mainly shooting landscapes, but have found myself shooting more and more concerts and now portraits as well.

    Also little camera background, started of with a Canon 70d and then switched to the Nikon D810 which is what I shoot with now. Loved the focus system from the canon for live view and video, but I have fallen in love with the image quality from the D810. I’ve seen that the D850 has taken the focus system from the D5 which is a huge bonus but it doesn’t seem to translate to video focus. 80% of what I do is stills and 20% video.

    No camera does it all ... well. Time to get a still for stills and a video for videos.

    I agree. I would go for that Fujifilm XH1 for the video.

    Yes it seems that’s how things are going, I think I’m going to buy a stills camera first and video later just because I don’t do it that much....decisions, decisions...

    The D850 is arguably the best DSLR available on the market today.

    So really. Would you recommend the D850?

    Of course. He said landscapes, D850 is great for landscape work and general still shooting which he said he mainly does and video was secondary which the D850 does quite well.

    It's best of both worlds.

    But I was just being silly.
