Nikon D850 Review (DxOMark): First DSLR to Hit 100 Points!

Nikon D850 review

Paul Carroll has just tested the new announced Nikon D850 (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) at the DxOMark. It beats the over two years old Sony A7rII and becomes the first DSLR camera scored 100! We are wondering if the new Sony A7rIII (or A9r) which is expected to be announced in 2018 will get on top of the DxOMark rankings.

Conclusion from DxOMark, “The introduction of the first BSI sensor in a full-frame Nikon DSLR with a super-high 45.7Mp resolution puts the Nikon D850’s image quality on par with, and often better than, medium-format cameras. The first DSLR to hit 100 points — rather apt for Nikon’s hundredth anniversary year — puts the Nikon D850 in a class of its own for image quality…So if you’re looking for the best image quality at low ISOs, at significantly less cost than a digital medium-format camera, the Nikon D850 looks like the camera you’ve been waiting for...”
