Re: Because it uses some parts that are exclusive for the Df only

D600 is relatively cheap because it shares common parts with other Nikon cameras. Mass production is cost effective.

Df has parts made exclusively for Df. Also, D4 sensor is not really a mass market item.

what parts from the D610 are used by other camera bodies?  Almost all the DF is taken from other Nikon bodies.  AF and metering from the D600/D610 and at least the sensor from the D4.
