What does everyone think the price will be - $4.5k for body?
maybe $4.5k US haha
^ I was going to say $5k but I really have no idea, it was a wild stab.
What price was the D810 when it first appeared?
It's hard to say, they might be making a move to push the D750 up a little in the bracket and price range. I think $4.5k USD might be a good guestimate. RRP around $5k AUD would sit ok in the market.
With the D5 priced high, and the D750 low, it would need to move up to that if it has all of the features that are being shared imo.
Also Canon set that limit with the 5D4, which this will look much better than (well so far on paper).
It's price will compete with the A7r2 as well, they would be smart to have it a little lower than the A9.
about $3500 US from memory
Yeah its tricky with the competing products, $5k AU is probably about right and i'd be keen
Sell D800, and the D500 may also go (since you can shoot in crop mode and get the same resolution, provided the sensor is good)
Gets me a fair way to that price, technically could even replace my A7Rii but god i love that camera.
Yeah I started listening to Project RAWCAST and they had an ep where they were complaining about the price of the 5D4 and I immediately thought "shit, Nikon are gonna do this with the D850". I reckon it will be priced between $4500 and $5k here but not above $5k.
Having said that, I don't have any great need or justification to upgrade, as awesome as they camera sounds (from the rumours).
Also, the $3k price I paid for my D810 thanks to a mate's staff discount at JB is seeming pretty amazing right now.
Yeah I got my D810 for $2760 from TED's AU via Ebay sale mid last year, I think it was an absolute bargain.
I am building a landscape photography business, but I don't think I could justify the D810 - D850 upgrade. I will probably look more to secondhand Medium Format digital or the Fuji 50 next year.
Saying that, the D810 is an amazing camera and I don't REALLY need to upgrade it.
A$5399 according to Nikon Rumours. That's a fair price increase over the D810
A weaker AUD$ is part of that as well.
Damn - that's a lot for what seems to mostly be a D500 Full Frame ~40mp.
Feeling pretty happy with my $1,925 (after cash back) D500 right about now!
Yeah, back when I bought a D700 brand new when it first came out, it was $4300. The AUD really sucked back then.
When I bought mine (27/10/14 only 3 months after it was released for A$3395) the US$ was at 1.13. Today it is $1.26.... That does not equate to a $2000 difference.
I'm honestly not surprised about the pricing considering Canon's 5D4 was about the same price on release. It should stabilise to a lower price bracket within a year or so.
As far as I can tell based on the specs the camera is much more rounded than my good old D800
$3300USD so should be sub $5k AUD i hope
If the low light performance is decent i could sell 3 bodies to purchase and not lose out too much
Official on the Nikon website now, $5799 preorder price, ouch
Aussie Tax strikes again - not sure i'd want to grey import something that costly
Damn, so what exactly does $3,000 more (or $3,800 more on recent sale prices, could have bought 3 D500's for the same price) than the D500 get you?
- Double the pixels
- Fancier Video
You'd really want to be making money from photography to even contemplate it at that price.
Digidirect have it at $5299 as pre-order at the moment on their web site. You'll always pay top dollar when it first comes out.
Access to the best wide-angle lenses you can buy. Sure you can use them on DX, but they aren't anywhere near as wide as on FF.
For me I primarily shoot landscapes, with wide-angle lenses. I do photography as a hobby, and for me currently shooting with a D810 - I don't see why I'd spend the dollars on a D850 right now. I'm more inclined right now to go and drop a bunch on a Zeiss 15mm to use on my D810 than to upgrade my body to a D850.
yeah the FX things is obviously the biggest one, the MP is quite handy for a lot of things.
Base ISO at 64 is the reason why the D810 was so popular with landscape shooters
The added FPS also makes it an option for sports shooting, i was excited when the Sony A99ii came out but its AF and system speed was a let down.
A fair few people skipped the D810 and kept old D800/E bodies as there was no more MP and some of the features werent important.
I expect the D850 will provide a big enough jump for these users
Does go to show what great value the D500 is though.
Email from Michaels has pre-order at $4,997
