He's relating the X-t1 to the Df but realistically the Df being a FF camera is targeting a different market with size, price and performance.

imo, the Df is targeting existing Nikon users to prevent them from migrating to mirrorless systems .. worked for me

if you were looking for an FF camera right now and werent tied to a system.. the Sony A7/r would be looking pretty good

There is for me a gap in the market when it comes to more compact but higher end ASPC systems that Canon and Nikon have not so far targeted. I actually think this lies behind alot of mirrorless sales in the west, you can't buy a really well made small DSLR with controls setup for high end use.

Whilst I think Nikon need a direct rival to Canon's SL1 theres also IMHO room in the market for a higher quality camera of similar size, perhaps with styling and controls similar to the Df.
