Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and Nikon D5 both create handful impression with their speed and autofocus performance, when tested in the dpreview testing center. The two well known professional sports cameras have been packed with massive specifications and not to mention D5 being the best lowlight conditions camera. But eventually, one thing that really surprised us that Canon 1D X Mark II outperforms D5, when tracking the fast moving subjects because of its slightly higher burst rate and not only this, the 1D X Mark II also the best in tracking subjects compared to other Canon cameras including the EOS 7D Mark II and original 1D X, as said by dpreview.
However, Nikon’s accuracy and speed in tracking the target subjects is still better as it progresses across the frame while also coming toward or moving away from the camera, which Canon Cannot.
Ultimately, both Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and Nikon D5 are the outstanding professional sports cameras of the present time.
