Welcome to NG.net.  That lens has a high reputation.  Your shots show it nicely.  Dog shot is my favorite.

Welcome to Nikongear!!!

Yes - for me it was the right decision, because I like low-light photography and the D850 Sensor is much better than the sensor from the 5D MK3; my only regret was the lost of the Canon 85mm f/1.2; the Nikon Alternative for Portraiture (105mm f/1.4 ist so expensive...)  ???

At the moment my main-question ist: How to minimize 'Micro-camera-shakes' with my handheld shots (I mostly shoot handheld and my first experiences seem to show, that - without IS/VR) I need for the 35mm at least 1/160 sec (handheld); for a 105mm I would need at least 1/500 sec.... etc.

Tipps for this problem?

I need tips that don't cost anything...  ;)

Lenses for me are more important than cameras... I FIRST bought the big and heavy Zeiss Milvus 35mm 1.4 (1,2kg) and THEN I had to decide between Z6, Z7 and D850 - and now I have to live with the D850. (For me the ergonomics of the D850 with big and heavy lenses seem to be better.)

Yes for critical sharpness you need quite high shutter speed with the D850; VR lens, monopod/tripod or short duration flash,,,

practice, practice, practice and the right technique for standing, holding and breething. Learn from people who shoot guns professionally...

if the 1.4/105E is too expensive you might try my 2.0/200VR...

Thanks for your offer with the 2.0/200VR; I will send you my address - BUT I will NEVER learn from people with guns (I am a pacifist)

Beyond what breath/posture control and leaning against nearby objects can produce, I suspect the monopod is the most portable and efficiently deployable solution for for slow shutter speed shooting.

Keith: A MONOPOD for 35mm focal length on 135 film? You are a camera man in Hollywood ... this is a joke isn't it?
