Several full in-depth Nikon D5 reviews and videos can be found below.

From PhotographyBlog conclusion:

Overall, Nikon has produced a superb camera here with the D5. There’s enough familiarity to make existing Nikon D4S users feel at home, but there’s enough new features to justify the upgrade. And those low light photos – just wow.

From ePhotozine conclusion:

The Nikon D5 is the best DSLR we have reviewed to date and offers excellent image quality and noise performance.

If you need the best available full-frame Digital SLR, and shoot with Nikon lenses, then the Nikon D5 offers high-speed shooting, and excellent noise performance. If you are wondering whether the Nikon D5 is the best option, or alternatively whether to choose the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II – then at the moment, we’ll have to wait for review samples of the 1DX II to become available so that we can see how the image quality compares.
