Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

No special feature to justify that price. No manual focusing aids or special focusing screen.   >:(
Palpak talaga yung Nikon kung magrelease ng bagong camera line (Nikon 1, Coolpix A). Nice concept pero sobrang mahal.

OK naman ang Nikon 1 at Coolpix A,kaso lang Nikon is out of reality. Akala nila they are the only player in the world. Like this one, the price is too much.

Yup, yung pricing palagi ang problema ng Nikon. Naging popular yung J1 dahil price drop (14k na lang ang kit)
Hintay na lang tayo sa Df2, narinig ko 51pt AF ang ilalagay. Hehe

Yung DF mukhang malupit sa low light mukhang ito na yung inaantay na pamalit sa D700. Sa article ni mansurov mas malupit to sa D700.

sabi nila smallest FF eh mukang mas maliit pa ang D600 dito. mas maliit pa din siyempre ang Sony A7. That price tag is really for the ones who has deep wallets

Maganda naman sya!! Mahal lang talaga. To some it is a toy and the rest as a tool. It is too expensive to be a toy and not practical to be a tool.Other models are more practical and well featured .  Even if you have money to buy it you will find it lacking in the end.If you stick your aging Nippon Kogaku lens and  your eyesight is failing you will wish for focus peaking. Nikon could not please everyone but the problem is if it almost everyone. We all wish Nikon a success because it can benefit everyone of us. However, I am not with Nikon on this one. The D4 sensor is so expensive for me.

Dear Nikon,

No problem Glenn, just sell your x10 and then tell her you have an upgrade for your x10 that is why it got bigger and a new name....ha ha ha ha....see both looks the same. The Df is in streroids.

      mukhang enticing yung low light capability if equall or comparable sa D4 performance. Parang D700 replacement na.. could be the D400 peeps have been waiting for.

Doc - here is the way I view this based on what I already have.

I've always wanted the D4 but it is way too expensive to do casual photography. I wanted the D4 because of it's higher ISO capabilities unlike the typical ISO 100 - 6,400 cameras.

The Df with the same sensor as the D4 at approx 50% off it's retail price, I find this as a better deal without the bulk of the D4 and it's price tag.

For other shooting requirements that requires more mega pixel, I already have the D800E. 

Weight is not an issue for me since most of my lenses are much heavier than the cameras.

My D7000 and Fuji X10 might have to go due to lack of use.

So for me, the D800E and Df would be a great combination instead of paying the premium of the D4.

Re: looks and other features.  Once you get to use the camera, you'll be able to adapt to whatever short comings it may have. I'm sure there are still wedding photographers in the Philippines who still uses D90 correct?

Yes, Glenn that seems this is for you. I remember that you preordered the D4 and now here is your chance. I will say that it fits your need then go. I hope a thousand more will have need like you so Nikon can roll on the expenses for more R@D.

Jun, sige gayahin mo si Glenn. Pagaralan mo. Maybe in year or 2 I can afford this too.

My wish: digital FM2...with a D600/d610 sensor, available split prism focus and AF (kahit 3 AF points pa yan), same size as the old film camera and all for $1,000. Happy na ako dyan.  ;D
