robmanueb: Please someone tell them we don't need a wideangle zoom, just a prime would do the trick. Make it half the price.
Maximum aperture varies from a rather dim f/3.7 at wide angle to f/4 at telephoto.

Pat Cullinan Jr: "there will be some photographers who will see the Df purely in terms of a lower-cost shell for the D4's very capable sensor" (Barney Britton).
Hey Nikon, how about a LOW-cost shell for the D4's very capable sensor?
Thanks for taking the time to give me some good information.
Pat Cullinan Jr: PC: No flash?! That's TOO retro.
>> But where would they put the flash?
PC: You're asking me?
>> How about it pops up out of the hand-grip on a stalk?
PC: Pop it in good health.
>> How about a clip-on the size of a walnut?
PC: Knock yourself out.

mike kobal: let's not think about the price and marketing hype for a moment. I think the Df will appeal to photographers who actually take pictures and own lots of af and af D glass. The 16mp sensor is far more forgiving then a 36mp sensor when paired with older generation Nikkor lenses. Suddenly you can shoot just like back in the film days again and as a bonus you can crank up the ISO beyond 100K. If you don't own legacy Nikkor lenses there really is no point getting one and no point getting upset about it.
Well conceived and put, Brownie. (No aspersion on Mike K.)
Pros: I can use my old Nikkors -- 105/2.5, 85/1.4, 50/1.4, 35/1.4, 28/2, 24/2, 21/2.8 28/3.5 PC, 17mm Minolta adaptation.
Cons: Too dear. Archeological mirror. Probably too big. Megapixels do not abound.
Neither here nor there: Retro bauplan.
Will I buy one? Not at the price. But I hear the Sony RX10 calling my name.
Do I like it? Yes!

Pat Cullinan Jr: It was staged. Even the New York Times revealed this. Read http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/arts/design/18capa.html?ref=arts, if you dare.
Looks like I struck a nerve.

What a nonsensical, affected teaser.
Lawrence33: dpr just removed my 'Post' they must not like what I said about this Site ?All the small minded comments from 'Amateurs' must have offended someone here.

Vladik: Pretty amazing photo quality. I want one :)
Can you show an example of banding?
Pat Cullinan Jr: Playing "roundball" on a beautifully sunny day. That's real living. And a school for rootedness.
Can I ask what city this is?
It's the Notre Dame School of Manhattan, a Catholic prepatory school for girls, founded in 1912 by the Sisters of St. Ursula, and located at 327 West 13th Street between Hudson Street and 8th Avenue in Greenwich Village.
I felt those New York vibes. Manhattan, the roundball navel of the planet. Oora.

Sunny roofs and shady dales -- like the New York I grew up in. Nice contemplative shot.
Don't wrap it. I'll eat it here.
