Df Buyer's Remorse? Already? WTF?
9 months ago

I am an early adopter. I can't help myself. Phones, cameras, tablets, gaming consoles...I'm there on day one.

I was one of the first in line to buy the D600. Which, in hindsight was a mistake. After spending countless hours and some $150 in cleaning kits and swabs, the cost of being an early adopter is clear.

So when the Df was announced, I put my D600 on notice. Take your oily sensor splatters and be gone! Out, out damn spot! There's a new bright shiny new camera in town: behold! It is the Nikon Df!

So it's no surprise that I placed my order for a new Df on day one. But as the days pass and I read more about the early impressions ("too light", "too many dials", "too expensive!" and my favorite - "strap lug placement design flaw"), I start to question my decision. Normally I ignore the detractors, but the steady chorus is hard to ignore.

My question is this:

Is it possible to suffer buyer's remorse for something you haven't even bought yet?

I am now thinking "screw it" and getting the D800 instead. Except it is big and heavy ...and has focusing issues and...those file sizes are massive ....and....and....
