Seriously, what is wrong with these forums ?
8 months ago

Man I remember when the D800 was released. This forum was crying, shouting, fighting. Nikon sucked big time. How dare they replace a pure, nimble, light in file handling (due to MP) D700 with a slow, resources and lenses hog, D800. We just want the best sensor available, in a small but solid cheaper camera, just like the D700 was to the D3. And make it simple, we don't want all that video and bells and whistles. Give us a true D700 replacement !!!!

Well, surprisingly,  Nikon listened. The DF is here and, is the camera everyone was asking Nikon to do. Really, if a camera was made by those forum members, this would have been exactly it.

So now, after Nikon released the camera everyone was asking for, almost everybody hates the DF ! Why no D800 sensor ? Why no D600 sensor ? Why no custom focussing screen ? Why no video ? Why retro styling ? Why no sports capable ?

Answer: because this is the camera YOU wanted !

Before reply, please check topics after D800 launch, you'll be left speechless for a while.

Just to save the uninspired ones some stupid questions: Yes I like the DF. No I will not buy one. I think it is priced correctly and worth every buck. No it doesn't compete with E-M1 or A7r no matter how many size or other nonsense comparisons you post here.
