The D810A could be the best low light/high ISO DSLR camera Nikon has ever made *UPDATED*

Nikon D810a DSLR camera for astrophotography 1
I received this from a reader – two striking findings about the Nikon D810A camera:

1) It *IS* appropriate for general use photography, indoors or outdoors.  There is not an obvious color cast, at least not one that is as pronounced as the coloration differences that occur when you change from say a Zeiss lens to a Sigma or Nikon lens.

2) This might be the best low-light/high ISO DSLR Nikon has ever made – see the attached screenshots and linked RAW files comparing the D810A with the D810 (both taken with the Sigma 50/1.4 Art @ 1/200, f/2.8, 9000 ISO):

Update: sorry, one of the photos was taken with NR on which could explain the difference in ISO performance.
