If you are looking for the best Nikon Z5 deals around at the moment, this guide is here to help! The Nikon Z5 is an ‘entry level’ full-frame mirrorless camera, but the specifications found on it belies its entry-level label: It's fully weather sealed, featuring five-stop in-body image stabilization, a 24.3Mp sensor that covers a broad range of standard ISO sensitivities – up to ISO 51,200 in native settings –and a superb electronic viewfinder. This enables clear rendering of textures and details, while suppressing noise, even when recording in dark or dimly lit surroundings.  

In the last few years, there's been a huge increase in the number of mirrorless cameras available. Initially, these mirrorless cameras were built for the pro market, but over time, others, like this 'entry-level' full-frame, mirrorless camera that emerged in July last year, and are perfect for those wanting to make the move from DSLR without breaking the bank. 

While the Nikon Z5 boasts (almost) the same 24-megapixel resolution as the Nikon Z6, some compromises have been made in order to keep the price as low as it can be. The retail cost was $1,399 at its launch and now it can be picked up at bargain prices...

The Z5 also inherits the 273-point autofocus system from the Z6, and even gets subject tracking, eye detection and animal AF. There's even in-body image stabilization that offers up to 5 stops of compensation, and Nikon has still managed to keep the form factor small and compact. And, unlike with earlier Z-mount cameras, there are two SD card slots.

Bear in mind that in some countries, the Z5 is only available with the Z 24-50mm kit lens, which might not be enough for many photographers. While in the US, you can buy the Nikon Z5 body-only version and add on your own kit lens. 

The Z5 is competent, attractive and affordable... and the price just keep falling, so look out for great deals (Image credit: Nikon)
