Reasons For

3 Reasons For
59% higher megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 50.6MPMP digital camera. That's 29.8MP higher than the Nikon D5 (20.8MPMP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

60% more total megapixel count Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 53MPMP digital camera. That's 31.67MP more than the Nikon D5 (21.33MPMP).
99x shorter flash sync-speed Edit
The Canon EOS 5DS R has a flash sync-speed of 0.01ss, whereas the Nikon D5 is a 1ss flash sync-speed digital camera (0.99s longer).
2 Reasons For
One more memory slot Edit
The Nikon D5 has two memory slots, however the Canon EOS 5DS R only has one memory slot.
Significantly lighter Edit
The Nikon D5 is a 1.2kgg digital camera. That's 843.8g lighter than the Canon EOS 5DS R (1.2kgg). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
