    For the last few days we've been bombarded with the information concerning new Nikon D850. Its specification, at least on paper, is really impressive, but will this camera be as groundbreaking and universal as the producer assures? Will it, as many people speculate, make many photographers who use Canon cameras change their systems for Nikon? Possibly we will find the answer to this question only after a few weeks, when the first cameras appear on the market.
