Hi Guys


I have a D850 and love it, I bought a second hand D810 body as im getting into wedding photography. Testing the D850 against the D810 I notice defo not as good in low light, so i am thinking to either buy another D850 or a D4s.


Also love wildlife photography, so liking the lowlight and shutter speed functionality.


What are your thoughts between D850 and D4s?

D4s for wedding photography?


Cheers pete

The better dynamic range and superior crop-ability of the D850 would be a better choice for me than the 1/3 to 1/2 stop hi ISO advantage of the D4s.

What are your thoughts between D850 and D4s?

Two very different guns.
The D4s is built for speed and the D810, D850 for flexibility.

I do lots of works that won't require large prints; for that I use the single digits.
For publications, my main source of revenues, and for wildlife works I go with
both the D810 and D 850.


If I was facing the same situation. I would stick with the 810 and 850 — I did

not find them too far away from one another, on the contrary.
