Nikon D5 low ISO dynamic range
→ Dpreview reports a “step backwards in terms of low ISO dynamic range” – the Nikon D5 has the lowest base ISO dynamic range of any current full frame Nikon DSLR cameras:

“Even at a modest 3 stop push, we see the D5 has already contributed a considerable amount of noise to its low ISO images compared to the 24MP D750. After a 5 stop push the gap widens, with the D750’s 5 stop file looking more like the 3 stop file from the D5. In fact, the D5’s performance closely resembles the performance seen from the Canon 6D, with just a bit more color noise showing in the 6D’s file.”
