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

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.

The body design of the df is completely new. Materials for which are not shared with other Nikon bodies. Leather-tone finish, metal dials. Exclusive Df stuff. Producing those in small quantities should cost more. Assembly time should be a bit longer with the Df also.

Yes, the retro look definitely adds cost to the Df.
