Finally got my hands on one.


Here it is side by side with a Fm3a


I guess this is a purely emotional/heart based purchase as I sold my D800 to fund this. So far no regrets at all. It's really not a camera you can judge on paper but only by really using it. I have no regrets at all. The camera is light but yet hefty enough, solidly built and just feels good on my small hands. It's also pretty intuitive to use as I have yet to open the manual. The menu system should be very easy for anyone who has used a Nikon DSLR. The only knob I use regularly is the ISO knob.  Focusing is pretty quick and accurate.  Although the lack of AF assist lamp means that you need to make sure you have enough contrast on your subject to focus on in extremely dark/low light environment. View finder is large and bright. And the shutter sound is pretty well damped and muted. The first time I heard it, the word "polite" came to my mind haha :D

Image quality is very good and High ISO performance is pretty amazing. It uses the flagship D4 sensor after all.  Here are 2 examples of high ISO shots SOOC.

ISO 6400 SOOC


ISO 12800 SOOC


Skin tone is pretty nice too


So is the mono tone


Overall I would give this a 2 thumbs up. The only complain I have is that when used with large lenses like the 70-200mm f/2.8 the camera feels a little out of balance as the torque on the wrist can be felt. I do wish someone will come out with a 3rd party grip to address this. This is not a camera for every one though as some may be put off by the "retro" look and vibe. But it works for me and that's all that matters to me :D

Maligayang bati sa Df mo Dan. I am still debating whether to get the Df or the X-T1. It will be expensive if I will go the Fuji's way because I don't have the lenses yet. I have an assortment of Nikkors old and new already.I just can't justify the price yet. Maybe I will end up with d610...who knows where my gas will take me. I hope to see more of your photos with the Df. Thank you for posting.

Doc. Salamat po. That was one of the reasons why I went with the Df instead of the Sony A7 kasi nga po meron na ako mga lenses ng Nikon. Then the kicker is that my wife contributed to the funds and so I was able to buy it :)

Idol Rick, it is really a polarizing camera. Many people pick it up and hold it for 20-30 mins at most then either they like it or hate it and immediately slam it. I guess I am one of those who love it immediately when I held it while you are one of those who really disliked it  :)
