You may be surprised to learn that nor do I have a need to convince Df fans that their camera is no good. Honestly, I could care less about what other people shoot. I have a d600 and I love it.

I was very intrigued by the Df, pre-announcement. When it was finally announced, I was somewhat disappointed. I think Nikon had a great idea, and sloppy execution. And I think it is over-priced. But I don't start threads to that effect, and have never entered a thread with the purpose of telling someone they made a bad purchase.

When people come on the forum asking whether they should buy a Df or d610, I will sometimes point out that the d610 is a more complete camera, a better bargain, etc. If that makes me a hater, oh well...
