Nikon D5 review: The dark night rises

Nikon D5 camera review
Nikon D5 review by Ross Harvey (Web, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram):

"Powerful, insanely fast, supremely agile, hauntingly accurate and a master of the dark. The Batman of the camera world."

I could end the review there, but what fun would that be?

INTRODUCTION

As with my Nikon D750 Review, this Nikon D5 review is founded upon real world usage in a professional shooting environment. You will not find specification comparisons, tests at each ISO or in depth technical breakdowns. While I am a technical geek at heart, the only thing that matters to me when I'm shooting is the ability of the camera.

The Nikon D5 isn't available in the UK yet, Nikon provided me with a review sample, which, much to my regret, I wasn't allowed to keep. I did ask of course. More than once (thanks for being patient, Nina)! That being said, it's an unbiased review; I've not been paid or employed to write anything specific, or to proffer a favourable report on the camera.

Being a loan camera there were some restrictions. Memory cards, mainly. I wasn't prepared to buy a fleet of expensive XQD cards as I didn't know if I was going to purchase a D5 (or two) for myself when they became available. That meant I used the D5 alongside my trusty D750, shooting various aspects of the day with each to ensure I had ample backup.

That offered its own benefits of course, I was able to directly compare the performance of each in various situations. If you've read the D750 review you'll already know how highly I rate it. You'd not believe how many messages, comments and emails I've had from people saying they've bought the D750 - and even migrated from Canon to Nikon, replacing full kits - due to that review. Hundreds of people from all over the world, without exaggeration.
