Nikon D5: a pro photographer's opinion

The sequence of 28 consecutive Raw frames I recently took of Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard celebrating his winning goal at the FA Cup Final confirmed the true AF performance of the D5. Every frame was sharp and in focus. Every frame. Camera manufacturers show sequences of sprinters running towards the camera in their brochures to try and sell the AF tracking performance of their new equipment. But that kind of movement has been easy for cameras to track for a long time.
