    This camera is great....from the 12/14 fps to the high ISO for low lighting, I am truly in love! Our last camera purchases were several D810 because you could get two for the price of the D4s. However, after experiencing the super fast focusing systems and the super crisp 4k video features, I'm trying to buy another one, so that I would have to switch from the D5 to an 810 during weddings when I need different lens (I use two different lens on on two camera during weddings to save time instead of swapping lens). I strongly recommend this camera for serious wedding and sports togs!

    I've never handled a camera quite like this one before, and it's absolutely amazing. Totally worth the money, even comparing to the D850 it's worth the extra cost. If you can afford it, do it, you won't have any regrets
