£5,200/$6,500

The D5 is an im­pos­ing hulk of a cam­era. While its 21.33MP res­o­lu­tion might seem mod­est, its burst speed of up to 14 frames per sec­ond is phe­nom­e­nal. More­over, it can keep fir­ing at this rate for up to 200 shots, even in RAW mode.

It’s not just a speed de­mon, though: the D5 also makes break­throughs in other ar­eas. Its next-gen­er­a­tion AF sys­tem boasts an as­ton­ish­ing 153 AF points, no less than 99 of which are cross-type. Plus, ma­jor steps for­ward in sen­sor de­sign en­able su­perla­tive pic­ture qual­ity through­out the huge stan­dard sen­si­tiv­ity range of ISO100-102,400, while also en­abling ul­tra-high ex­panded set­tings, up to ISO3,280,000.

The D5 doesn’t just pro­duce spec­tac­u­lar stills, ei­ther: this is Nikon’s first D-SLR that can cap­ture ul­tra-high def­i­ni­tion 4K movies. For us, it’s sim­ply the best dig­i­tal SLR of all time. BUY if… Money is no ob­ject and you sim­ply want the best cam­era the world has to of­fer right now.
