    A nice thorough write-up, but I think the camera is going to need a bit more on the video side for its $3300 tag unless maybe you're a big Nikon stills gal or guy that also shoots video.

    The 2-3 clips on YouTube I've seen looked really nice, but so do the ones from $1000 cameras.

    Just a few changes/additions like 10-bit recording, a proper LOG profile, 4K/60p (even via external recorder)...and it's really a different camera that would turn more heads.

    Another issue is its competition in a similar price range offers some very desired features...auto-focus (5D Mark IV), low-light (a7SII), etc.

    Nikon has no cinema camera(s) to protect so if they are going to continue making DSLRs with video capabilities, I think they should do something to separate themselves a bit.

    Tony Romo really liked it too. I mean, Tony Northrup. I think they are the same person. (though Chelsea does not look like Jim Nance).

    And D850 is still crippled due to reasons listed above. Nikon may not have a higher end camera to protect but Sony does. And Nikon is indeed protecting it.

    Then it's time to switch sensor manufacturers, ha.

    Of all the features you mentioned I think the 10 bit is the one I would really like to have

    This video comparison is also interesting to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2irrdAFvJ8

    Agreed on the 10-bit recording as well.

    If you have a lot of Nikon glass I can see the appeal.

    I sold all of mine when I ditched my D810 and went with the XT-2.

    I have quite a few Nikon zooms and primes that I love but I also very much like the Nikon colour science, so for my personal projects I am thinking of coupling the D850 with a PIX E5 to get 4k 422 8 bit prores files which I can then transcode to 2k or HD, possibly getting 444 files.

    Long time Nikon user here; can I ask why Fuji ?
    (I'm frustrated by Nikon's stupid attitude to video)

    Several reasons, for me:

    1.) Fuji's skintones are stellar.
    2.) Fuji's film emulations are very organic
    3.) Fuji's lenses are made of all metal and are some of the sharpest lenses out there.
    4.) Being a mirrorless camera, use can use adapted lenses, I also use my set of zeiss contax primes to great effect.
    5.) The video quality is excellent.

    Found another interesting review

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E_jcfQiLWg

    at 28' 25" they measure the DR of the camera that in Flat is 13 stops. I think that is quite impressive
