Nikon Z 5 Review

 

24MP full-frame sensor ; 5-axis IBIS ; Tilting touch LCD ; High-magnification OLED EVF ; Dust and splash protection ; Dual UHS-II card slots ; Works with Nikon F lenses via adapter

Cropped 4K recording ; Autofocus a step behind Canon and Sony ; Meager 4.5fps continuous drive ; Z lens library still in development ; Few third-party Z lenses available

The Nikon Z 5 offers a lot for photographers moving from a Nikon SLR system to mirrorless, even though it omits some of the latest bells and whistles to meet its price point.

Nikon Z5 review: the best value stills-oriented full-framer

 

For still photographers, we feel the Nikon Z5 represents the best value for the money when it comes to full-frame mirrorless cameras. Which is why it receives our top award.

The Z5 is an extremely well-rounded camera for stills photography (we'll talk video in a minute). In fact, it's easily the the most compelling stills-oriented full-framer for the cash in 2020. This also makes it a natural vehicle to convert Nikon users...

Nikon Z5 Review

 

The Nikon Z 5 is Nikon's third full-frame Z camera, and its first entry-level full-frame mirrorless model. In many ways, the Z 5, known hereafter as the 'Z5', shares several features with the Nikon Z6 series of cameras, including the newly announced Z6...

Nikon Z5 review

 

Will the new Nikon Z5 ‘entry level' full-frame camera be enough to persuade you to make the move to mirrorless?

Solid, robust feeling build ; Good EVF and tilting rear screen ; Twin memory card slots

Only 4.5fps continuous shooting ; 4K video is cropped ; 24-50mm kit lens is limiting ; Nikon Z6 is better value

The Z5 is a very good entry-level full frame camera, but its relatively high launch price may just persuade some potential purchasers that it’s worth forking out the relatively little extra for the Z6. Compared to other brands, the Z5 is neither cheap...

Nikon Z5 review: Mirrorless marvel

 

Nikon's more affordable full-frame mirrorless camera has a host of impressive features. But how does it stack up in use? Read our review for more...

Great image quality from full-frame sensor ; Huge potential from new Z mount lenses ; Electronic viewfinder is of great quality and scale ; Autofocus system adds Eye/Face/Pet detection

Video offering much stronger from competition ; Low burst shooting speed ; Not a full vari-angle screen (it's tilt-angle only) ; Single area AF can struggle a little in lower light

As mirrorless cameras go the Nikon is easy to use, has a wonderful viewfinder, introduces improved autofocus features, and feels pitched to the correct kind of audience. Despite a low burst shooting speed and video capture that's outclassed by the...

Nikon Z5 review

 

The Nikon Z5 has plenty to charm those looking for a great entry-level mirrorless camera.

Comfy grip and solid build Logical control layout High-resolution EVF 5-axis AF system Very capable AF system

Underwhelming burst shooting speed Disappointing video specs including cropped 4K Tilt-angle display, not vari-angle

The Nikon Z5 is the best entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera you can buy right now. It’s not perfect, but thanks to a blend of great image quality, a reliable autofocus performance, accessible handling and a weather-sealed body and tough body, the...

The Nikon Z5 full-frame mirrorless camera may not be the best for video but it is priced right with features to win over those on a budget.
