The worst thing about the DF is the Disappointment

Don't get the whole split focus thing

I know some people like it, but I never really cared for it in my FE. I thought it was hard to use in low light, and too much recompose.  It worked, but I was much happier with DSLR AF. And I prefer the clean window look. And until the Df, I never saw many posts with people screaming for it in their dslrs or they wouldnt buy them. Now all of a sudden, without MF aids, no one can manual focus anymore. When I need critical MF, which isn't often, I use a tripod and LV.

Supposedly the Df may have improved MF capability. I guess we will have to wait and see. But certainly in no way a deal breaker for me. I;m getting the Df for the sensor and the cool build. The buffer is pretty nice too.
