Now that the Df is out, I really wonder how easy for the Df to focus manually without the focus confirmation dot?

Bjorn Roslett, a known Nikon expert and someone very demanding about his gear, has noted that he finds the Df to be far superior using MF.

Sure, but I want more substantial proof.

There are some publicly available comments, as well as some paid material behind a firewall, on his website,

Publicly, I have seen very little, and the litte I saw was not very convincing (at least to me).

As for the paid material, I can't support that.

Photography is about time, space, expression, and - ultimately - capturing light. This formula may sound easy, but actually capturing the "ideal" photograph is far more complex to accomplish as our own perceptions and responses vary according to each individual. Photography is inherently driven by human subjectivity, but the general feeling is that a superb photograph is widely appreciated, as it commonly depicts a striking and universal concept. I believe this process should be sought by many of us, who deeply enjoy capturing and sharing photographs that embrace life and depict what we are.
