Nikon D5 Sensor Review and Test Results at DxOMark

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for Nikon D5 flagship full frame DSLR camera. We know that Nikon D5 (Amazon, B&H, Adorama) has really amazing features such as Native ISO 102400, Extend to ISO 3280000, 12 fps Shooting for 200 Shots with AE/AF, Multi-CAM 20K 153-Point AF System, 4K UHD Video Recording at 30 fps… But the DxOMark test results may let you down. Nikon D5 earned an DxOMark score of 88 points (NOT good enough), other results include: Color Depth: 25.1 bits, Dynamic Range: 12.3 Evs, Low-Light ISO: 2434 ISO.

Conclusion From DxOMark:

Moving from a 16-Mpix to a 20.8-Mpix sensor is quite significant for professionals, and the improvements in high ISO DR are useful in a camera like this. In terms of sensor resolution, the Nikon D5 now matches the admittedly aging Canon EOS 1Ds Mk II, a camera still widely used for magazine features (think double-page spreads) as well as commercial photography. While it’s true that models such as the Nikon D810 (and the Canon EOS 5DS and SR) are arguably more suited now for that kind of work, the Nikon D5 nonetheless represents a tipping point in all-around capability. With its excellent sensor performance, phenomenal AF system, impressive burst rate and durable build, the Nikon D5 is clearly optimized to appeal to those targeted by the company’s marketing department, yet its capabilities should also entice other kinds of photographers, whether they own a Nikon D810 or not.

Test results:

Nikon D5 vs Nikon D4s vs Nikon D3s

Nikon D750 vs Nikon D810 vs Nikon Df

Nikon D5 vs Leica SL (Typ 601) vs Canon EOS 1DX
