The camera carries on the legacy of its predecessors offering some fantastic specifications. The whole body of the camera is constructed with magnesium alloy. This makes the camera sufficiently light weight as well as durable. The CMOS sensor with 16.1 mega pixel resolution is having FX format drives this camera.
The camera offers support for an ISO range from 100-12,800 (possible expansion up to 50-204,800). The device has a 91,000 pixel 3D matrix metering system.
