My first week with Df
Dec 24, 2013

…this camera really makes you wanna go out and shoot although you are too busy for that and should be preparing for Christmas instead;)

Anyway here are a few from my hometown showing a little Christmas atmosphere in Norrkoping, Sweden...

Just living in an area with that kind of scenery would make me want to go out and shoot!

Isn't it funny how the DF critics fall silent when presented with images like these?

Congratulations on your gob-stoppers

so now who is acting like a troll? how old are u again?

the post is about photos, and nothing more; it's always good to see nice images regardless of the gear. it should be about the photographer.

great work, i really like the colours.

Beautiful images, without a tripod ha ha!!!

The d4 sensor is a marvelous sensor, its the quality of pixels and not the total number.

Looks like a fun camera and that's what it is all about, especially for us hobbyist.

Nikon has hit another home run with the df and of course my d4.

Once again, lovely images.

Thanks

Larry

I'll tell you when you find a sense of humor

the post is about photos, and nothing more;

The OP posted two comments. The first was about the CAMERA and the second was about the IMAGES. Does a double-take.....well would you believe it, I commented on the CAMERA and the IMAGES. I also noted that DF (the CAMERA) critics seem absent when really good IMAGE samples appear from that camera.

it's always good to see nice images regardless of the gear.

I agree and that was partly my point, i.e. that some can't bring themselves to admit it or say it. Obviously you're not included among their number.....not unless you're only saying it because of what I said.

it should be about the photographer.

So you didn't see me congratulate him? It must have been while you were mid-tantrum

great work, i really like the colours.

Is that about the photographer?

Take a look at these two comments of yours from above...

"the post is about photos, and nothing more"

"it should be about the photographer"

You seem confused. Actually, think it's about both.....and the camera. It's just as well that I alluded to all three isn't it?

Happy Christmas.

You call it bating, I call it a bit of harmless banter. Perhaps you're just more serious than me. You must be a fun guy to be around. Carry on and I'll make you laugh yet 

And aren't baiters usually the ones who slag camera's off rather than the ones defending them FROM the baiters?

merry christmas as well, u and yours.

'Tis the season of goodwill, so cheers, and a splendid new year to you

Thanks Dread. I just knew it. You've redeemed yourself

And thanks again. You too, and I hope your Easter is a very eggy one and that your Shrove Tuesday is full of pancakes

Many thanks Markus…I was hesitating before the purchase…and sure there are some minor issues like the flimsy battery door and it takes a little while to get accustomed to the controls and dials just like when you buy a new car….but the Df is now my favorite camera and definitely my to go camera...

Many thanks…glad you liked the images and of course they could have been taken with my D800 like this one from last week…still I have to admit I feel a lot more at ease with the Df…

Merry X-mas
