    Looks like Nikon is looking to make the new D5 their flagship DSLR. The D4 came out 3 years ago, and this one looks to build upon it.

    Specs:
    All new 153-point AF system
    Full Frame 28MP sensor
    12 frames/sec continuous shooting mode
    Shoots 4K UHD video
    Extended ISO reaches 3,280,000 (native: 102,400)

    Here's the article I found it from:

    Yeah the D4's ISO tops at 12,800 native and 204,800 extended. The D5 is a SIGNIFICANT improvement, so long as their claims (and general reputation) hold true of their low light clarity.

    That 28 or 20mp.

    Sorry it don't matter I cant afford it, but might make a good camera in 2022 when its 1K on ebay with 500000 on the shutter

    I think the DSLR no longer uses mirrors.
    They call it IRPs, Image Reflective Platforms now.
    So now, technically, all DSLRs are also Mirrorless. :)

    I hope they included a bunch of Scene modes.
    Otherwise I'd have to pass on it.

    This is what you've been waiting for Derrel.
    Nikon's NEW mirrorless camera, well, kinda ==> Nikon reveals its own VR-ready action camera

    At least you can put it on top of the D5 and take 360 degree VR (Virtual Reality, not Vibration Reduction) videos of yourself taking photos.

    Yes, I agree with you, 100 percent man! It definitely needs many,many scene modes. Among the absolutely necessary scene modes to satisfy the guys over at dPreview would be, at a bare minimum: JBNAP (Just Bought, Now Am Pro) mode; SAPFB (Spray And Pray For Birds) mode; WTF-HDIFA mode (What The F***-Hard Drive Is Full Already?) mode; OMGIJC (Oh My God I Just Climaxed) mode; plus at least three other assorted scene modes.
