Move forward. See opportunities that had previously been invisible. Capture and define them with a clarity that was previously unattainable. With the Nikon D5, you can. Designed for critical moments, the Nikon D5 features a 153-point AF system that acquires subjects rapidly and holds them tightly. Standard sensitivity range is extended to ISO 102400, while delivering stunning image quality at higher sensitivities. An incredibly stable viewfinder image permits confident tracking of moving subjects even during approx. 12-fps continuous shooting with full-time AF and AE, sustainable up to 200 frames. With the Nikon D5, endless potential waits in each millisecond. Go there, and discover your masterpiece.
