To be honest I actually couldn't say if it was a placebo effect or not. I "feel" like it's easier, but it's very subjective and I wouldn't swear by it really. If you do get to try one at the store I'm curious to hear what you think.

I think I will, I am very curious how good the OVF of the Df is.  Problem is that there are not many shops nearby.

I do have a Sony a900, and the OVF is brighter and bigger than any Nikon FF cameras, and manual focus remains challenging.  For manual focus, I am afraid that focus peaking + focus magnification remains the best digital option as today.

Photography is about time, space, expression, and - ultimately - capturing light. This formula may sound easy, but actually capturing the "ideal" photograph is far more complex to accomplish as our own perceptions and responses vary according to each individual. Photography is inherently driven by human subjectivity, but the general feeling is that a superb photograph is widely appreciated, as it commonly depicts a striking and universal concept. I believe this process should be sought by many of us, who deeply enjoy capturing and sharing photographs that embrace life and depict what we are.
