Jazz, in your line of photographic / video activities, I would not go for anything less than the new D850.

The 4K video being the minimal benchmark!

 

:)


Equipment: D810 | D300 | D50 | B700 | P5000 and some lenses.

Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 + NIK Software Suite

There are very few situations where any camera will top the D850.  I am yet to run into any issues or drawbacks.  

 

It's got great AF, a fast frame rate, and high resolution.  Smaller size NEF files are still very good - and you could produce first rate JPEG's out of the camera that are publication quality

 

The video capability, focus stacking, and other features are great for special applications.  Low light performance is around the best available.

 

I've been surprised at how much I have already used the tilt LCD for images above my head or at ground level.  I expect more of that kind of use.

 

If you have the choice, the current AF system of the D850, D5 and D500 is MUCH better than anything in previous cameras.  For demanding AF situations, you need one of these three cameras.
