The rangefinder/green light works pretty well, and in decent light the screen actually allows for manual focus by eye in my experience.

Thing is, if Nikon had put a split rangefinder/prism screen in it, we would now be inundated with complaints about how it is unusable at f/5.6

I tried my 80-400 AF-S with the F3, which most agree is the nicest viewfinder Nikon ever made. Fact is you couldn't use it much above 300mm wide open, as it blacked out one half.

On the posturing front, I feel a lot less like a poseur with my Df than I do with my D800 round my neck, not that that bothers me of course, but I find it amusing that people associate posing less with a pro looking camera than an amateur looking one.
