Re: The Philosophy of Nikon Df

The D600 and the D800 use sensors designed and manufactured by Sony. The Df and D4 use a sensor designed by Nikon but manufactured by a 3rd party. I have read that the sensor is made by Renesas but I wouldn't swear to it.

The D600 and D800 sensor is probably cheaper because of the economies of scale which would explain why a Df/D4 sensor is more expensive
