D5 has 153 AF points of which you can select 55. 99 AF points are cross-type (of which 35 are selectable). 15 AF points work with f/8 lenses (of which 9 are selectable). The autofocus works down to LV -4. Autofocus is amazingly fast at 14 frames per second with top of the class accuracy (in tests performed by Tony Northrup it was only second to 1DX Mark II in terms of how many shots were in focus having just 6% fewer of shots be in focus).

The X-T2 is able to capture 4k video at 30 fps and HD video at 60 fps. By capturing footage at a higher resolution then downscaling it to 4k, X-T2 produces very detailed video. Additionally, with its F-log colour mode, the X-T2 is able to capture even more dynamic range. The inclusion of a built in micro HDMI port as well as 3.5 mm audio jack allows for external devices to be connected as well. As such, the X-T2 is ideally set up to produce fantastic content.
