d750 or d850 or d5

Hello everyone,I'm planning to upgrade my camera soon (in 3 weeks). I have got a Nikon D750 and I'm an aircraft photographer. I still couldn't decide, if I should go for D5, D810 or D850. The reason is for me the most important thing is noise. I know D850 and D5 is newer and has got a better quality but considering noise, which one is better. And somehow I feel that (I have checked so many pics) D750 has got much much better noise reduction than D5/D850. Also, another rumor is that D6 will come soon, so donating all my money to D5 from now will be right?

I spoke briefly to a wedding photographer last year, who had a D810 and D750. Preferred the D750.

They're all relatively new, and going to have similar sensor characteristics. I would suggest that you're splitting hairs.

If you want detail, get the D850. The D5 will likely perform better in low light, but its sensor size is fewer MP than the D750. There are electrical characteristics involved.

With respect to noise: don't take this the wrong way, but get over it. There's always going to be noise. Stop pixel-peeping, learn to use techniques in post to mitigate what you find objectionable, and get on with your life. None of these bodies is going to be significantly better than the others, excepting the D850 because of the sheer number of pixels. And if you think really difficult images (e.g. astrophotography) are produced straight out of camera (SOOC) without extensive post, then you might want to look into what really goes into an exceptional image.

Since you do not provide a use case, hard to suggest any body over another. We presume you have good, fast glass, too. But you didn't say. Neither do you provide a representative image with a discussion of its shortcomings.
