If you're a Nikon user, maybe start warming up your credit card. Nikon formally launched the D5
and holy mackerel! And that just applies to the price!
First a few quick specs:
20.8 MP, 12fps to 14fps, ISO up to 3,280,000.
153 AF targets with 99 cross-type sensors. The AF has it own processor.
Some touchscreen capabilities.
Camera comes in two versions: dual XQD cards or dual CF cards.
The price? $8,500 (CAD).
Nikon also announced the D500
(cropped sensor) which has somewhat similar specs as the D5.
Nikon's new flash
has a built-in radio-slave control but requires a D500 or a D5-plus-optional-accessory. Correct, the cheap camera has built-in wifi, bluetooth and radio-slave control and the top-of-the-line camera has none of this.
It appears you can't use one new flash to radio control another similar new flash (i.e. the new flash only receives the radio signal). Without a D500 or a D5-plus-optional-accessory, the expensive new flash falls back to the conventional pre-flash system.
Nikon did not announce the new lenses.
