Nikon Announces Development Of D5 Camera

Nikon Announces Development Of D5 Camera

Today Nikon has made one of the most pointless camera announcements I’ve ever come across.  Brace yourselves… they’re working on a D5.

Wow!!! Didn’t see that one coming.  Ya know… after the D2, D3, D4… who’d have thought that they were working on a D5?  Wonders never cease.

Nikon aren’t the first people to put out a development announcement, but usually when these things come out, there’s at least a couple of shreds of information, or maybe a photo to go with it.  Not this time!  All we know about the D5 is that it’s a camera. Were Nikon really that desperate for column inches that they had to throw this blog bait out there? (yeah, yeah I know I’m writing about it)

2016 is an Olympic year and we already know the Canon 1DX Mark II will be launched head to head with a D5.  This isn’t news.

Oh and there will be an SB-5000 speedlight as well.
