    One thing I noticed on this is it has 2 SD card slots. So I still can't wrap my head around why Nikon got fooled into putting the ultra expensive Sony QXD slot in their new camera's like the D850 when Sony themselves won't even use their own memory card standard. The QXD is literally 10x as expensive as a nearly comparable SD card. I can buy a 128gb SD card for around $30, but 128gb QXD is $200+ depending on the day of the week and depending on how badly the vendors want to price gouge people.

    Have resisted so far to anything not Canon, this sure is tempting. Still old school enough that I prefer the SLR form factor and optical finder but the future seems to be ML even with Canon and Nikon it looks like. Given the amount of Canon glass I have, adapting is the way. Hmmm choices.
