Nikon D6 (1)

We’ve had a hands-on look at the Nikon D6 – Nikon’s new flagship professional DLSR, with a 20mp full-frame sensor, 105 AF points, and an updated AF system designed to give improved accuracy, with a higher success rate. The camera offers 14fps continuous should with AF, which is an improvement over the D5, which could only shoot 12fps continuous or 14fps with mirror lock-up.
