Hi guys,

             For those who grew up in the film SLR era, Nikon was one of the kings, and the new Df follows the styling of that era with a twist that it's based on the D4 sensor. Personally, I think it looks great!

  Here's the link;

The Canon EOS 6D does 11mp and 5mp FF RAW Wink .
While Nikon tries to address people who want to have a cheap D4, video-free and retro-designed to use Stone Age Nikkors before 1977 I wouldn't give up any D800 for that thing, especially not at that price. I don't understand why they didn't include a microprism screen into the finder. Focusing with that "focus help" for manual lenses like contemporary Zeisses or modified Leica is not that much fun.


And if they wanted to have it retro, why not design a sensor back for old F4 or F5? That I'd call environmental friendly to reuse those old horses.
I think that 16 Mps on FF will be a recipe for super low noise, and all those knobs man! there everywhere, I'm a knob twiddler and here you've got a lifetime's twiddling in front of you. In fact it's so gorgeous, I'm going to put up my soul for sale on ebay.

No, you are not.
Indeed, not the only one.

The D4 sensor used in this Df has about the same high ISO noise as the 20mp sensor in the Canon EOS 6D.
