If the Df has the same sensor and processor as the D4, I think its major advantage is colour accuracy. There are times that I think the colours produced by the D610 is a bit artificial, too vivid (I shoot RAW) and not very natural even when compared with the D700.

It depends a LOT of how you process the image.

Sometimes I like to process extreme:

And get as much of that color range as I can.

and other times I like to process in a way that really looks the way I saw it on the day:

Sometimes its just fun to go nuts:

or go somewhere in between:

The camera is really only a vehicle to capture light. Its the user that processes it after that makes the difference. Any of these shots could have been taken with any camera. It's just a matter of how you treat them.

I shoot RAW and use ACR mainly to tune highlights and shadows and to fix noise. Occasionally I add a bit of clarity. I rarely do anything related to colours other than correcting WB.

I find processing as fun as shooting.  It's really where the end result happens.  Much the same as dark room work.
