Nikon’s big announcement at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this year was the new flagship D5 DSLR. In the company’s exhibition space, Nikon is displaying a Nikon D5 DSLR and Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens that have been sliced cleanly in half to show off the innards with a cross-section view.

B&H came across the display today while roaming the show, sharing photos on Twitter and Instagram.

“If you look closely you can see they are not the same camera, meaning it took 2 Nikon D5 bodies to create this display,” B&H tells PetaPixel. You can see how the Nikon logo on the pentaprism is more than 50% intact on both halves.

Here’s a closer look:

Fully intact Nikon D5 DSLRs are now available for pre-order at B&H for $6,497. Assuming 2 D5 cameras and 1 lens went into this display, then it has a retail cost of about $15,000.
