I pretty much agree with all you've put.

Just a clarification on the "Good Old Days" point: it's pretty common in many activities and many walks of life for people to hanker after "The Good Old Days", which are always around 25-30 years ago. Personally, I think some of the enthusiasm for the Df - and indeed for FF in general - is based on this. The Nikon pre-publicity was clearly tapping into this with slogans like "It's in my hands again" and "pure photography".

Nothing against that - it's all a matter of preference. I don't criticise the Df or those who like it; I was intending to draw attention (as I think you are) to the strong reactions both ways to the Df.

I think similar strong and sometimes emotional reactions apply to FF in general (and I write as a D800 user).
