Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Nikon Z5 is the company's new entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera. There's a large 24MP full-frames-per-second sensor at the heart of the camera. The 3.69 million-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) is excellent, and there's a very good 3.0-inch tilt-angle touchscreen. It's pricier than rivals like the Canon EOS RP and Sony Alpha A7 II, but it's the best option out there.

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Nikon Z5 is an entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera that's just as well suited to many professionals as experienced amateurs. Its 24MP sensor takes beautiful photos, and is compact without being uncomfortable for long days of hand-held shooting. In-camera image stabilization helps keep camera shake at bay at slower shutter speeds to help ensure sharper photos.

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Nikon Z5 uses the same external body design as the Z6/Z7. It uses the less robust SD format, rather than a single XQD slot. The 24-50mm kit is a good lens to get you started with, but it's not quite as sharp as other Z lenses. Auto Area AF does a reasonable job of following moving subjects around the frame.

Pros[**]
  • High-resolution full-frame sensor
  • 4K video
  • Tilting touch-sensitive screen
Cons[**]
  • Not as sharp as the Z6/Z7
