For optimal results from a monochrome camera, shoot in RAW and use a processor that understands that the camera sensor is monochrome debayered.  One of the best current processors is Monochrome2DNG fro Iliah Borg who also wrote FastRawViewer and RawDigger.


Some free options are DarkTable and RawTherapee using the monochrome debayer option.



A Mac-only really good processor is Accuraw Monochrome


Even without shooting in RAW and using optimal post processing, at 8-bit JPG, the difference between the D850M and D850 is painfully obvious.  When comparing the D850M to a D850, the D850 blacks don't even look black - more like a dark grey.  Details and tonality that are completely lost by a D850 appear with the D850M.  And with the lack of Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) pixels that a mirrorless camera has, you don't get any of the PDAF sensor artifacts (with PDAF, a array pattern of pixels on the sensor are only used for focusing which can result in the array becoming visible in the picture).
