Ok, It looks very nice, But under the Retro looks we have just another DSLR, A good one, But just another DSLR period.

Yes its a tad pricey, But that's the " Bling " factor, Something Leica have been doing for years at way higher prices.

So stop squealing about price and poor old me can't afford one, Just buy a D610 for less than half the price and smile, Be happy in the thought of all that Wonga you saved.

Good on Nikon for bringing out something that looks a bit different, I kinda like the look of older cameras, But like old cars I would not want to use one today, But for bling factor there is nothing finer......Grin

I like it. I have a D4 and the Df has the D4 sensor I think so I am pretty confident it will be not only a great looking camera but an amazing performer too. Will I buy one? You bet I will. There's no point in working like a dog if you can't buy yourself something you like but don't need. I'm not rushing out to get one when it's in the shops but I'm sure it will find it's way around my neck at some point.

Don't understand that - I have a couple of cameras.

Don't feel the need to upload here really, only because it's another job to do and I don't see any real gain in it.

It will be interesting to see if Canon will bring out an AE1 lookalike?.......Then we'd be talking, hell I might even be tempted by that myself........I know I'm a hypocrite TongueTongueTongueTongueTongueTongue

I've still got my AE1. I often hang it round my neck when I go into town...even though it doesn't work any more. I sometimes wear my Canon FP as well if I really want to dress up Wink

That's what it's all about really, appearance, isn't it? When one ventures out into the great outdoors, one must look the part; whether one's kit works or not is immaterial, isn't it?

No doubt it's a great camera,but it's too expensive,and probably weighs a ton!
The price and complexity of some cameras is just too much,stuffed with technology that takes some understanding,and can be of dubious value,as regards actually improving your photography.
An"entry level" DSLR,used by a reasonably experienced photographer,can produce images just as good,for a fraction of the cost of this new Nikon.
In fact,I read somewhere that comparing A3 prints,taken under identical conditions,by a good quality smartphone,compact,and DSLR,most non-photographers couldn't tell them apart!
It's a sobering thought,when we all scan these comparison sites,after that perfect camera,what's the point,when your average family viewer of your latest masterpiece,can't tell whether it was taken on your phone,or your latest,state of the art , 2000 Nikon!

Until you take it into low light wit no flash or need a fast frame rate.

Well as a Nikon user for the last 30 years ( I have a F3,F4,F5,F90, an FM2 and a D2 and 2D3's) I think that it's the canine testicles and I want one NOW !!!!

(too expensive pah !!, you get what you pay for !)

According to the Nikon advertising, it is the lightest FX DSLR

Agreed, but a Ford Focus will do exactly the same as a Ferrari in traffic, but take one on a racing track............................ !!!!


Anyway, who want to drive a Ford if you can have a Ferrari ????

It's the perfect camera for my needs in terms of spec. I don't really care what it looks like.

Shame it's far too expensive, and not available in the UK without the 50mm lens. I already have two 50mm lenses... I don't need another!

When I was assisting She-who-must-be-obeyed at a wedding, an Uncle Bob took a careful look at the open equipment case and told me that he'd be keeping out of her way. When I asked him to explain, he told me that She-who-must-be-obeyed was obviously a high-end photographer because the kit was top-end.

No doubt it would have been very different if She-who-must-be-obeyed had been wielding a Nikon D40 with a kit lens!
