JamesR: yeah that's pretty much sealed it for D500 for me.

 

Whilst I would absolutely LOVE to have the D850 on land, I think I can make do with some UWA lenses for landscape photography, as that's really all I need a full frame for.

 

I'm selling my rx100ii in case you're interested, haha

It's funny, in a sad way, I keep going back and forth about these. I've had my D850 since March 2nd and have yet to even open the box. It has sat in my camera safe (gun safe haha) untouched for 5 months plus.

 

The more I think about it, the more I am leaning to the D500, but I'm still on the fence! Ugh. Need to decide in the next month.

Happy that i decided a D500 for both, under and above water then it came out.
And a few weeks ago bought a used D750 for above....
Only because a wedding of a friend ;-))

Seriously, I do think the D500 is a better camera for UW for a couple reasons. I'd still go for the D850 myself for certain reasons. Currently shooting D810 UW and love it. 

 

If you're stuck with an extra D850 and nothing to do with it, I'd be happy to help you out there!
