Sony A7R II, may be the right opponents for Nikon D5 (yet to announce). Nikon still has not announced D5 but looking at the rumored specification one can believe that Nikon is going to announce something massive.
May be the newly updated specification are rumored but this time Nikon d5 has something blazing. Let’s see what those are.
|Models/ features||Nikon D5||Sony A7R II|
|AF system||Contrast and phase detect||Contrast detect phase detect|
|AF points||107 or 173 points||399+25|
|ISO||102400(native ISO)||25600(native ISO)|
|Continuous shooting speed||15fps||5fps|
MP- However, Nikon D5 is looking a great competent upto a certain point but not succeeded to offer you the resolution like Sony A7R ii. A7R II holds 42mp of resolution whereas rumored resolution of D5 is 20mp. If you compare the clarity and sharpness of D5 with 7r II, then no doubt, 7r II is much better.
AF points- In the present time, there is no competitor or alternative which can compete Sony A7R II in AF matters. The camera holds 399 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, when it combined with 25 contrast AF, make the subjects tracking work more easy, instant and accurate. Now, The rumored AF point is 107 or 173, but Hybrid AF we’ll get to see.
ISO- It will be a complete twist, if Nikon is employing its native ISO range of 102400 , which is expandable ISO range of A7R ii. ISO range of Nikon will allow the photographers to go confidently for dimlight shooting because the photographers will be benefited with lesser noise image by freezing the subjects, beautifully.
Continuous Shooting speed– More continuous shooting speed will help the users to freeze the actions or movement of the desire subjects much easily and quickly. The 15fps of Nikon D5 will be amazing in capturing the action of the target subjects, on the other hand the 7r ii has 5fps only.
However, the table contains just a rumored specifications (Nikon D5), as soon as the camera announced we will update the table.
