Re: Is the Df a dud? No, the opposite

Is Nikon grasping for straws with the Df?

A non-geek friend who is a fashion designer is enamored with the retro styling , and Nikon imaging reputation.

She wants to upgrade from a Canon S95 P&S.   Her choices are Nikon Df or possibly looking at Fuji X100s.

She will use for travel vacations , and social type photos.

The reason I ask is because she researched a couple of online photo review sites that said the Df is a dud:


Too expensive@ $2800+.   Poor value for money spent.

Poor ergonomics.    Better to go with conventional Nikon DSLR (But she does not like the styling too much.)

Thanks for any advice I can recommend to her.

The Df isn't a dud, but it doesn't strike me as a beginners camera either. As long as your friend has the money and understands the first line above, she'll do fine.
