What, no film crank on Df
1

Ok, so I admit that I would have loved to own the new Nikon Df.  It is from my era when Nikon F bodies were the epitome of a pro camera.

But wait!  This retro beauty is missing one very important feature.  Where is the film/thumb crank?  That has always been one of the key features of film SLR's of the era.  Without the thumb crank it's not fully retro.  So, I'll wait and see if they come down in price.

Also, I wanted this camera to pass along to my son as a keepsake, the way my dad passed his Rolex watch to me.  But long after I am gone, will this digital Nikon still be working and will its software useful.

Alas, I may never own it but I will sure go talk to folks who do.
