How do these lenses perform on the D850? Anything new since this discussion...

…or was it all covered four years ago.

Thanks,

Went back to the old review. Still using the 16-35mm f/4 lens with the same satisfaction.

You are welcome  ;) Little detail on the steering wheel display: first gear, and 59km/h (60km/h is the speed limit in the pit lane). Knowing the shutter speed (1/60s) and counting the number of blinks of the tail light, you can calculate the frequency at which the electrical lighting installation operates  8)

   600 times/second?  ??? :)

 Excellent dynamics. The detail in the cockpit!

Mine is significantly off toward the 35mm end. Soft on one side. Probably needs a centering adjustment or something.

Toward the 16mm end I really can't argue with the results on the D800.
