    1. I fear that Nikon may not have a clue. The Df looks like a design by committee effort. There doesn’t seem to be a strong leader that will make the hard design decisions to cut features for the sake of a more comprehensible whole.

  1. Whether or not some of us think the Df is a good idea (I personally see it as the camera equivalent of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer’s long-lost brother lets Homer design a car [3 cupholders!] which puts the company out of business), I don’t think Nikon cares what we think. Over on Nikon Island it has some real traction with certain photographers. I regularly interact with a group of older (65+) photogaphers and their eyes get all misty just talking about the damn thing. Its only a matter of time before they talk themselves into dropping the coin to buy it.

  2. At first I liked the Df – until I had it in my hands. Too big, reminded me of my old plastic Zenit 122. Now, I love the X-T1: I started photography 26 yrs ago with a Nikon F1, and now I own and use an Olympus OM-1, so I’m accostumed to smaller SLRs…
