I have a Df that was purchased especially for it's low light abilities. I take photos at EV2 and the Df locks in as if it was taking images in broad day light. In fact, I have been in situations where the D800 would roam a bit before locking in but not the Df (using the same lens, of course). The ability to capture good images at ISO 12800 is priceless. The AF was working very well. I could just see the sign when I took the photo at 1/10sec with VR on.

This is really impressive. Thank you for posting.

Even more impressive he shot at 1/10sec f/4 which is EV 7 near enough; as he shot at ISO12800 this is equivalent to an EV100 (EV at ISO100 which I believe RF sensitivity is referenced) figure of 0 rather than 2. But I could be wrong of course.
