I want to digitize Slides with the D850 and the AF Micro Nikkor 55mm f/2.8.

What are the best, quickest and cheapest options, to generate usable RAW-Files?

Something like this I guess:

....if you don't have a PB-6 bellows with slide copy attachment.

You could also just use a light table and make a repro-setup.

The ES-1 is the simplest, smallest solution. You will have to improvise a light source, which is usually not a problem for experienced photographers

If you can ignore the clutter on my desk you can see my set up, the D850 is fitted with a current 60 mm lens, this combination is mounted on a copy stand but a tripod would work, I raise the rear screen to a vertical position, switch on live view, this way I can sit at my desk and copy my transparencies, I use a wireless remote to fire the shutter, a standard light box provides the illumination.
