The layout of the controls and indicators to the left of the monitor has changed.
The controls below the monitor are now as follows.
An button has been added to the right of the monitor.
An MODE button has been placed on the front of the D5, positioned for ease of access when the camera is rotated to frame shots in portrait orientation.
The controls on the top left of the camera body are now as shown below.
The ISO button has been moved next to the shutter-release button and the MODE button has been moved to the top left side of the camera.
The D4S displayed ISO sensitivity in the viewfinder and top and rear control panels; the D5 displays ISO sensitivity only in the viewfinder and top control panel.
The displays showing the frame count and the number of exposures remaining have switched positions in the top control panel. The D5 shows the frame count only when off.
