I have a feeling that several members of this forum now have a Nikon Df and may have had or still have D600 or D610. So I am wondering what advantages one would find with the Df.

I am also wondering how skin tones are handled and if DR is any different.

Looks cool with a scarf and skinny jeans?

I'm always amazed that people ask such questions and I'm always amazed that people actually respond like this.

If one is so concerned with skin tones then one has a deep knowledge of post processing to get skin tones just right regardless of camera. For example. If not yet, then I my response to the OP is to learn about such things - they can be far more powerful than any new camera. Spend your time on post processing techniques to get things dialed in to your preference.

And a response like that may have garnered a laugh or two a few months ago, but at this point it's completely absurd. It is a camera, nothing more, nothing less. A phenomenal one at that, but who cares, we won't touch it, because, ack, only a hipster would ever dare to be seen taking pictures with one. Surely photographers are not so superficial? Or clever?

But wait, 18+ Likes... there must be something truthful here. It may just be that the only buyers of the Df are from Brooklyn and the Mission. Poor Nikon; such a specific, limited market.
