Product description
Announced Nov 5, 2013

Manufacturer description: The Nikon Df is a unique, advanced-level D-SLR that harmonizes Nikon heritage and modern performance in a lightweight and very capable FX-format camera. The new Df pays homage to the enduring style and controls of Nikon’s distinguished “F” series of 35mm film cameras, yet features technology similar to Nikon’s professional flagship D4 D-SLR.

Our review

The Nikon Df is a product that's as much about invoking nostalgia as it is about capturing the moment. Its control setup, though slower than a modern DSLR layout, will appeal to anyone who wants a camera that feels more like a camera than an electronic device. However, despite an excellent imaging sensor, we think too many compromises were made on such an expensive camera.

Good for: Anyone longing to shoot using traditional control dials. Owners of Pre-AI Nikon lenses.

Not so good for: Users of autofocus wishing to work in low light. Photographers looking for the best available technology for their money.
