1. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
One of the most complete DSLRs we've seen
Sensor: Full-frame CMOS | Megapixels: 30.4MP | Autofocus: 61-point AF, 41 cross-type
| Screen type: 3.2-inch touchscreen, 1,620,000 dots |
Maximum continuous shooting speed: 7fps | Movies: 4K | User level: Expert
Advanced AF system
Expensive compared to rivals
4K video options limited
Canon's 5D series of cameras has a rich heritage – the original EOS 5D bought full-frame photography to the masses,
the Mark II unleashed Full HD video capture for the first time on a DSLR, and while the Mark III became a firm favourite amongst photographers.
The 5D Mark IV pretty much tweaks and improves on everything before it. With a new sensor that delivers pin-sharp results,
a 61-point AF system that's incredibly advanced and some very polished handling, the 5D Mark IV has to be one of the best DSLRs we've seen.
2. Nikon D810
It may have recently been ousted from the top spot, but this is still a terrific choice
Sensor: Full-frame CMOS | Megapixels: 36.3MP | Autofocus: 51-point AF, 15 cross-type | Screen type: 3.2-inch, 1,228,800 dots |
Maximum continuous shooting speed: 5fps | Movies: 1080p | User level: Expert

AA-filterless, high-res sensor
5fps continuous shooting
No built-in Wi-Fi
Large file sizes
It might be getting on a bit, but the Nikon D810 is still one of the best DSLRs around.
Images from Nikon's megapixel monster are bursting with detail, whilst its 1200-shot battery life puts the 5DS in the shade.
We're also fans of the D810's clarity micro-contrast adjustment with its video-friendly Flat mode for maximum dynamic range.
The 51-point AF system copes well with tricky focussing situations, mainly because both the AF and metering systems are taken
from the now ex-range-topping Nikon D4S. Relatively compact dimensions and the unusual (at this level) inclusion of a pop-up flash
further ensure that the D810 doesn't disappoint.
3. Canon EOS 5DS
Proof that more can mean better: the 5DS sets a new standard for DSLR photography
Sensor: Full-frame CMOS | Megapixels: 50.6MP | Autofocus: 61-point AF, 41 cross-type
| Screen type: 3.2-inch, 1,040,000 dots | Maximum continuous shooting speed: 5fps | Movies: 1080p | User level: Expert
Great AF, metering and white balance
Huge file sizes
With 50.6 million effective pixels, the 5DS is by far the highest resolution full-frame DSLR on the market. The same goes for the 5DS R,
which is identical to the 5DS, but features an anti-aliasing cancelation filter over the sensor to help resolve a little more detail.
Pixel-packed sensors can be compromised, but not here. Image quality is superb, with fantastic detail, well controlled noise and good dynamic range.
The 5DS is now the benchmark for full-frame image quality, but it's not quite perfect. There's no Wi-Fi or Ultra HD video recording, and huge
image file sizes necessitate decent memory cards and a fast computer.
4. Nikon D750
A full frame DSLR packed with features for a reasonable price? Yes please
Sensor: Full-frame CMOS | Megapixels: 24.3MP | Autofocus: 51-point AF, 15 cross-type
| Screen type: 3.2-inch tilting, 1,228,800 dots | Maximum continuous shooting speed: 6.5fps | Movies: 1080p | User level: Enthusiast/expert
New 24MP sensor
High performance AF system
Disappointing special effects
Tiltable screen doesn't fully articulate
Can't quite stretch to one of our top three options? The D750 still packs a cracking 24.
3MP sensor and is as weatherproof as the D810, yet it's roughly 25% cheaper. Compared to its
baby brother, the D610, the D750 has superior AF, metering and video systems, as well as a wider
sensitivity range. Its continuous shooting speed isn't quite as fast as some may have hoped for,
whilst the HDR and other special effect modes have limited use. But on the plus side, you do get a
useful tilting screen and Wi-Fi connectivity. The D750 is a well-rounded, well-priced choice for enthusiasts.
5. Nikon D5
Nikon's flagship DSLR has the best AF we've ever seen
Sensor: Full-frame CMOS | Megapixels: 20.8MP | Autofocus: 173-point AF, 99 cross-type | Screen type: 3.2-inch, 2,359,000 dots
| Maximum continuous shooting speed: 12fps | Movies: 4K | User level: Expert
