Three years after the D4 was born, Nikon's now introducing the highly anticipated successor to its flagship DSLR: the D5. Nikon says the camera is built for speed and accuracy, featuring an insane 153-point AF system, to help cover an extremely wide focus area. Inside, there's a full-frame 20.8-megapixel sensor, a 12 fps continuous shooting mode and a freshly designed EXPEED 5 image processor -- which the company claims is capable of creating "true to life masterpieces."

Better yet, Nikon's latest DSLR shoots 4K UHD video, along with being able to reach an extended sensitivity ISO of 3,280,000 (native ISO tops at 102,400). Looks-wise, the D5 is similar to its predecessor -- in other words, it's massive and should be familiar to anyone who owns or has used a D4 in the past. The new DSLR, which Nikon notes is the most powerful camera in its history, also sports a 3.2-inch, 2.36 million-dot LCD touchscreen and USB 3.0.

The D5 will be released in March for $6,500, body-only. We're looking to get our hands on it here at Nikon's press conference, so keep your eyes peeled.
