Finally Nikon  did something! Puh ... the best news since a while - I had lots of problems with this freeze issue - if this solves it than this firmware update is worth much more than all these new bells. I lost a lot of keepers this year because of these random lockups! For a while I though I am the only one but as it slowly turned out a few people had the same problem. If this heals it I will open another bottle! ;)

I experienced AF freeze several times on the first shoot that I did with the D850. It will be interesting to see how this update affects things.
