Creativity abound... and kudos to Roger for making all that come together.
Michel F: Wait for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART. It's going to trounce it for far less money. For the investment involved, I'm not overly impressed.
Everyone talks about how great the Sigma Art 35 is and how it will kick Nikon's butt WHEN they come out with other focal lengths. I wonder have you all counted the number of duds Sigma has produced over the years compared to its one great lens?
intruder61: the sigma 50 spanks this Nikon offering.
was that a serious comment or just sarcasm?
CFynn: Wonder how this compares to the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4?That lens is the same focal length and speed, but available at less than one third the price. Has nice bokeh too.
I had the Voigt but I sold it. My eyes are getting old and it is getting difficult to manually focus when DOF are thin. The Voigts do have great color rendering and micro-contrast. However, I think the Nikkor is a tad better than the Voigt, but not 3 times better. But then, you can't always use the difference in price to judge the incremental IQ. Sometimes it takes a lot of costly exotic glass elements to get rid of a slight coma, fringing etc.
ceaiu: It's a desirable lens, but too expensive.Sigma will do better when they'll release their ART variant.
Sigma has produced one good lens, the 35/1.4. How many duds have Sigma produced before that?
Wow... you can predict how good a Sigma will be before they release it.
Digital Suicide: I'm totaly fine with:-Design,-No built-in flash,-Size of a DSLR,-Old sensor,-Max shutter speed,-Battery,-Buttons. Human can get used to anything.And other old or crap parts.
I'm not fine with:-No video (at least 720p for sake)-No split focusing screen.This camera is presented as retro, that takes old MF so it's a must be.-PRICE. Man oh man... Can't comment on that. No buy.
I read a review by a well known reviewer stating that MF with the Df is a breeze and the ergonomics is excellent. I wish most of the people complaining here at least hold their horses till they get a chance to hold that camera. However, I agree that Nikon priced it high, but then if it is out of your reach, don't buy it.
Derek Feng: OMG! This is really, indeed a beautiful camera, A real CAMERA. I have been a die-hard fan of Canon for at least 25 years. But now I start to question myself, are you sure about that in font of this particular Nikon? Come on, Canon, could we have a digital F1 or something similar, please?
Do you think even in Canon brings one out, it can mount FD lens? This Df mounts almost every lens ever made my Nikon!!
Frank_BR: In the beginning there was the D800 for $3000. So Nikon stripped the AA filter and tge D800E was born. Because less is more, Nikon charges $3300 for the D800E. The next logical step would be a D800F with a configurable AA filter for $5000. E la nave va.
The addition of the plate involves additional parts and labor... so Nikon charges more. What is wrong with that?
Very creative. Kudos!!
The new Flickr sucks big time.
Thank you for making me smile.
Just a bunch of stuff that I can't say in public... usually heard from politicians. I hope cc doesn't garner business and adobe is forced to eat crow and perhaps get taken over by a more customer oriented company. Or better still, now that Google owns Nik, maybe they will develop a better product than adobe and at reasonable price provide a perpetual license for us photographers. That way I can say adios to adobe.
As others have stated, good bye Adobe. I wish you the worst.
rekky: $224 for a tripod collar? You have got to be kidding me!
Sandy b... these people need to bitch, so why worry about these bitches? LOL...
Haters gonna hate... I am just glad that Nikon is closing the gaps in their lineup. I have the 2.8 and will not get this lens.
codeNsnap: If only the D600 had 51 AF points...39 is perfect for the APS-Cs, but taking a D7000 and shoving a FF into it and not designing the D600 from scratch is why I'm staying away from D600..if it was priced at the rumored $1500-1600 then that's a different story
So just select the 11 points from the menu opitions in the D600 and that problem goes away. It will not be that crowded. Also, more cross type points should be better than one cross type point, imo.
Jogger: Waste of time since these are taken with the kit lens. The limiting factor is the lens not the camera. Not sure why DPR doesnt use the same lens across bodies so that proper comparison can be made. Something like the Zeiss 50/2 Makro can be used on Nikon and Canon bodies. For the m43 cameras they use a macro lens.
Limiting factor is the eye behind the lens, in most cases.
alexst4: Ridiculously overpriced...What do people find so attractive in these dated body designs? a-la retro?Is this nostagia? Back when these boxy designs appeard it was out of necessity, not because it was 'cool'. These designs are not ergonomic to say the least :) This leica even has a screw for a mecanical sutter release, I mean...really?I bet the average age of the buyer is around 70 years old :) and they buy this because thay're rich and this is how they remember a camera should look like... lol
Shigzeo,From what I have read, Leice has a large factory in Portugal where it manufactures a large number of items. I am sure Leica cameras are fine machines and the lenses are probably one of the best out there. However, they are status symbols and fashion statements too. Nothing wrong with that... it is the buyers money that he/she is spending.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes......6D just smoked Nikon D4 in low light AF, -3EV vs -2EV. Oh and one more thing, 6D can be customized with tracking, acceleration and deceleration tracking AF sensitivities......D4, D800, and D600 can't!
Can 5d3 and 1dx do those? I think you should ask that question.
le_alain: I want a D700s with just that sensor that's all !! Don't need polycarbontae too, to smalll body, left whell (even if it can be block, which is a plus..) Same confort, solidity as D300 or D700, but with this sensor. I don't want the D800 and his 36 Mpx
Do you realize that the DR of the D600 matches that of D800, at least from ISO 400 as per Bill Claff's calcs. That is superior to that of the D700. Also, you are getting more MPX, if that matters. To me the DR and MPX is a bigger deal but again needs vary between person to person.
