It's about style
In reply to Bunza, 3 months ago

Most cameras are differentiated from one another by function (and price, of course).  The Df is differentiated from other FF cameras more by style.

You can have a rational debate about function.  I like / don't like this camera because it has / doesn't have this feature which is useful / not useful to my photography because...

But it's hard to put an objective advantage or disadvantage to style (though some posters have tried very hard, sometimes almost comically so).  Opinions (either way) are not based on a rational justification.  Or rather, people think they're giving a rational objective view, and other people think that's just stupid and say so.  And the tone of the debate spirals downwards.
