I think most people are annoyed with DF; because d400 is needed and overdue, but the "iphone of the dslr community" that DF is, was not expected and seems not needed.

1. D800 is the first camera with resolution so high that it simply does not matter.
2. Most people who do not own/shoot d800 misunderstand it. Color depth and accuracy in addition to resolution is what makes d800 great. Resolution alone is over rated.

My take is that since this was in Nikon's development pipeline for four years and it is a niche product, Nikon simply waited to get the re-spin of the D600 out of the way, then released the Df (which was always a low priority project) as a means to add a little extra revenue to sagging sales and just get it off the R&D bench.

What's next is anyone's guess, but I suspect that the R&D teams are now focused back on bigger fish.  So, maybe you will see that D400 in the near future.
