Did you actually test the battery life, or just rely on CIPA figures? I ask because many reviewers say they get over 1,000 shots on a single battery.

Hi Cynog, unfortunately connecting the camera to the PC via USB cable to transfer images requires the camera to be switched on, which drains the battery. After image transfer, switching the camera off lets it charge via the USB cable, so unfortunately reliable battery life was not possible during the review period. Obviously different shooting settings will result in different battery life figures, therefore using CIPA figures gives a level playing field which can be compared with other cameras.

What's the point with no fill flash.. which I use much of the time. Add a flash and it becomes a huge cam. How many amateurs are out in the desert and jungle to need the weather-proofing? Guess I'll have to settle for Lumix for my 2nd cam. The 43 sensors are now very good, Ken Rockwell says and shows us.. after testing the crazy priced Sony.. I just need to wed the Lumix to the lightweight small Voigtlander 40mm f0.95.

the camera has only one card slot and zero ability t fit a grip with focus and shooting buttons on like normal DSLRs. I'm glad I went for the D850 because for me, until they improve the functionality of this camera-which they should have done before releasing it-I'll stick with dslrs. and I havent even mentioned Nikon users with third party lenses who have found their glass doesnt work on the new adapter. sorry Nikon. massive own goal.

I have a d500 and d7100 both have double cards and I have never needed a second card yet

We are all different - I wouldn't buy a main camera body without twin slots.

My feeling is that far from being an own goal, the mirror-free camera is the future for Nikon (and everyone else). Once the global shutter is available, there needn't be a single moving part in a camera.
