Honestly the best thing to do would be to try to find a store to try one. I have one and I do find it a little bit Better for MF than my D600, but it's not a revelation or anything.

Are you sure this is not a placebo effect?

I find that I'm a little more sure of my focus on the Df than I am on the D600 but I wouldn't say focusing on the Df is like focusing on the ground glass of my Rollei TLR or anything like that.

Ok, that's good to know.  Thanks for your input.

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.

To be honest I actually couldn't say if it was a placebo effect or not. I "feel" like it's easier, but it's very subjective and I wouldn't swear by it really. If you do get to try one at the store I'm curious to hear what you think.
