Nikon D5 Gets Gold Award at DPReview

DPReview published their full in-depth review for Nikon D5 flagship full frame DSLR camera. And the recently released Nikon D5 (Amazon, B&H, Adorama) DSLR camera gets an impressive 89% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

From DPReview Conclusion:

The Nikon D5 represents a more remarkable upgrade to the D4S than its appearance suggests. With a completely revamped autofocus system, the D5 will keep up with just about any subject under just about any lighting conditions. The new sensor offers class-leading low light image quality, especially due to an improved JPEG engine, but Raws aren’t the most flexible when shooting high contrast scenes. The improved, extensive customization allows for quick adaptability to fast situations, with instant AF mode overrides at the touch of a button. The D5 is a specialized tool capable of highly professional results.

Good for: Photographers who shoot fast action, are frequently using available light in low light situations, and those that need ultimate reliability in adverse conditions.

Not so good for: Hardcore landscape photographers or photographers on a budget, serious videographers, individuals that need ultimate Raw file flexibility and people that like to travel light.

The new Nikon D5 DSLR camera once again redefines what a DSLR is capable of capturing, and is engineered with the ideal balance of resolution, low-light ability, system speed and processing power.

Nikon D5 (CF Version): $6,496.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Nikon D5 (XQD Version): $6,496.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.
