Hands-on with the Nikon D5

The D5 gains an additional Function button on the front of the body (to the left of the lens mount) compared to its predecessor, the D4s. In hand, we found the new Fn-2 button to be very easy access whether you are gripping the camera vertically or horizontally. This addition of this button makes more customizable one of the most customizable DSLRs in the industry.

Speaking of the gripping the camera, the D5 is extremely comfortable to hold: the the grip is quite large, and very deep. With a camera this size, a solid grip is paramount to the overall ergonomics of the camera.
