it only appeals to a very specific niche of people, well maybe two niches. One is those who like the cosmetic design and/or old school dials so much they are willing to pay a premium over the D610 to get them and the other is people who want the absolutely best sensor for high ISO shooting but can't or don't want to pay for a D4 and/or don't want to have to to lug such a large camera around. To those who dont' fall into those categories the Df is just an overpriced D610 with less features and a new set of clothes. In other words, pointless. To the people that do, especially the ones in the first category, it is the best Nikon camera ever. With such divergent, completely opposite, and emotionally charged opinions and no one really being able to see from or accept the other sides point of view it is no wonder there is so much angst surrounding the camera.

Ever tried to shoot with two D4 cameras because you have no time to change lenses? How's your neck?

I've shot with two D800 with grips, one with SB-910 attached using Black Rapid setup for a six to eight hour shoot with no problems, and I'm 64. Of course I'm using f/4.0 lenses (24-120 & 70-200).

I find it easier to use 2 Df cameras and 2 fast primes.

Primes are useless on my type of photography, which is event type. Also, if you're using fast primes, why a Df?
