In the new-generation AF system that excels in subject detection power, it covers a wide range of D4S ratio over 130% at high density with 153 points of focus point effective for all AF NIKKOR. In addition, 99 of them are cross sensors which make capturing subjects more easily, and said that they are efficiently placed in the center and the periphery.

Although there seems to be no major change in the design of the back side, a new high-definition image monitor of about 3.26 million dots adopted as touch panel is installed.

With D5, the newly developed Nikon FX format CMOS sensor and the new image processing engine "EXPEED 5" realize the highest usual sensitivity ISO 102400, the highest Nikon history. As a result, images with higher quality than ever in a wide sensitivity range from ISO 100 are obtained, desensitization to ISO 50 equivalent (Lo 1), sensitivities up to the highest Nikon historical ISO 3280000 equivalent (Hi 5) In Hi 5, high-quality shooting that can be stably obtained in a wide sensitivity range, such as being able to shoot a subject in darkness that could not be taken so far in color, is made possible.
