First few pix in the garden with the new high-end Sony mirrorless A1. So far no complaints these all with 200-600 at 600mm Squirrel at ISO 2500 other two ISO 12500. The motor drive is very fast at max 30 fps and little or no noise. 50MP CMOS sensor image size 7680x5760 raw file 102,731 the autofocus is the best I have ever seen and picks up every time look forward to some action pixs. The eye-level viewfinder is very large and pin sharp.

Impressive - if you right click on the images and select "View image", then use control + to zoom in, the images are clear and crisp.

Yes a lot of detail there.
I wonder how much extra it is compared to the D850.  You need to do a side by side to accurately compare.  Pictures taken on different days are not directly comparable.
There is no doubt that the Sony AF options are IMHO more exhaustive than the Nikon ones and more useful to typical everyday use.

There is value to having more MP especially if you want to crop images and use them as large detailed prints.
Posters can be printed at 36/72dpi and look good as they are meant to be viewed at a distance but a gallery print is looked at as closer than the recommended 1.5x diagonal.

Chris you are looking at the JPG as you know so the full 7680x5760 would show a lot more. I was glad that Photoshop CC had updated raw drivers a few day ago so I was able to avoid using JPG to start with as many of the early reviews were made from. I hope to get images of more interest ASAP at moment I have been making use of my garden. I think I have made the right choice but am sad to part with ALL my Nikon kit as I needed to in order to make the change, body alone for the A1 is £6349.99oi in UK.

I think that you need to drop all the Nikon gear like you have done Graham. Otherwise you get caught in a situation of betwix and between like I am with the Nikons and Fuji.  I have Nikon FF and APS-C as well as Fuji MF and APS-C.

I have recently got the Fuji GFX50R as a test of whether I need the 51MP of MF.
I am finding there are subtle differences and the Fuji lenses just like the Hasselblad lenses deliver very sharp results which are very subtle.

Chris I have made some very good friends here and see no need or wish to move. Several of us go back to the D1 first serious DSLR' more than 20 yrs ago and at that time learning an all-new way of taking photos and helping others find the good news.

Yes so many years of learning and experimenting when we were in the days before the D3.  The old D1 and D2 series cameras were a real trial and tested many of us. The D3 and subsequent FF sensored cameras really help the quality emerge from digital shooting.
