D1N0: Clearly Nikon wants everybody to buy a D800. A D800 functionality body with d600 size with a 24mp kick ass sensor is what Nikon should have made. Use a scaled down version for the 24mp aps-c sensor and the longed for D400 is also a fact.
The d800 is very good at high iso. Almost as Good as the D4. The greatest con of 36mp is slower operation and large file sizes, not noise.
I just want to know how he keeps his afro alive.
you said "in this body" meaning Df. I don't care about the Df, not even with more mp. Nikon should have made a different Camera. That was my point.
justmeMN: The camera wasn't good enough to get an Award, but DPR should have at least given it a Participation Ribbon. :-)
Maybe it should get the booby award. But dpreview doesn't have that. I would say Gold IQ and back to the drawing board.
When you would have read my post comprehensively you would have known that I am not requesting this body at all. I could care less how many mega pixels it has.

Phew.. Made it to the comments but forgot what I was going to say....
jst13: Why no Fuji X-E2
They didn't feel like it.
Xentinus: Looks pretty but too big for Fuji x system cameras.
The is an external Grip available for Fuji http://static.bhphoto.com/images/images500x500/849431.jpg
CanonKen: Will there be an Adobe profile?
The point of this lens are de specific optical distortions. You want to correct them? Don't buy the lens.
DBHH: As you drop a pile of cash on this thing please remember that they used to make lenses like this in the 1800's because THEY COULDN'T MAKE BETTER LENSES AT THAT TIME! If the original designer of this 19th century optic was able to make a lens that was as good as one on an iPhone this design would have ended up in his antique garbage bin.
YOU! have no sense of romance whatsoever!
low light champ (just)
This must be a sabotage act and not a compatibility issue. Nikon firmware actively checking whether there is a third party batterie being used and refusing to operate. They'll probably say it is to protect the user from damaged camera's and they are just doing you a favour.
So the Chinese government decided they would rather have Nikon making J1's in China than in Thailand and told Sakar to make a less obvious rip off.
Frank_BR: Nano coating? Oh, no, another manufacturer who tries to tell other version of the same old fairy tale about lens coating!
It all started in the '60s when Asahi Pentax created a hype with SMC (Super Multi-Coating). Since then, the world has had to hear all this blah blah blah about the magical qualities of the various types of coating used in photographic lenses.
Some acronyms created since then by the fertile imagination of the lens manufacturers:SMC PentaxEBC: FujiT*: ZeissMC: Pentacon, CZJ, TokinaSSC: CanonC: NikonN: NikonSHMC: HoyaUMC: SamyangVMC: Vivitar
And RMC Tokina ;)
Well the 100D based on the same chip got a gold award from dpreview. It is fast enough. It's just not an enthusiast camera, because it lacks physical controls (despite touch screen). Canon wants to profit from the mirror less market while not hurting their dslr business. They don't want people replacing their rebels for a mirror less, but they don't want to miss out on in either.
sono1mito: mah,affermare che le ultime telecamere rappresentano un" grande passo avanti rispetto a 2 anni fa" mi sembra esagerato,certo qualche dettaglio è stato migliorato ma non tanto.Ognuno di noi penso che anche con una camera "vecchia" scatta ottime foto senza inseguire le ultime novità.Ciao
Ik denk niet dat hier veel mensen Italiaans verstaan knakker.
JustDavid: and the Pentax Q?
the q is much more than that
