Well I'm not a surf photographer, I'm a 76 old year senior who spent many years shooting large and medium format film. Until recently I shot with a 645Z and a K1, but my video projects necessitated selling the Z. I shoot with what I need to get the shot. If the surfer photographer can get what he needs with a K3, more power to him.

For me, anyone asking for fast autofocus fall into the mass photographer type of photographer: not able to compose a photograph.

When you're trying to capture a shot of a whale breaching with a 600mm lens, composition takes a back seat to a sharp capture that can be cropped.

I doubt the D750 would be a match for either the D850 or the SONY in terms of AF performance. The SONY has nearly 700 AF points vs under 200 for the D850. Video wise (important to me) the SONY will outperform either at 1080 or 4K, although the D850 is excellent but because of the slower readouts of the larger sensor, rolling shutter effects are likely to be an issue at times. Neither of the Nikons will let me use with adapters, my favorite Pentax and Canon lenses. Nor do the Nikons have internal IS.

My opinion, FWIW, is that Pentax should not release a mirrorless unless they seriously rethink their corporate attitude towards video performance. A Pentax mirrorless with mediocre video would be ignored by both the public at large and hard core Pentax users. Like certain politicians, Pentax isn't expanding its user base and those of us who do have a need for serious video capable cameras have, for the most part, already supplemented our Pentax bodies with SONY or Panasonic.

I own a K1 and a SONY a7III. The SONY focus is much faster and accurate than the K1, not to mention the SONY's tracking ability. I'm happy with both cameras, they each serve purposes specific for my needs.
