Re: Nikon Df, how easy to focus manually?

Had a play with a Df today, side by side with one of our D800Es and using my ZF.2 35/1.4. Focusing was no better on the Df; safe to say that both are poor for fast lenses. Same story with my 100/2 MP.

Df felt quite nice but a bit light and I don't think that it'll be long before we start seeing reports of the dials getting knocked off or coming loose. It's not built for action. I kept wishing for an EC button on the right where it should be. Having to take your hand off the lens (not always possible with a heavy lens) or lower the camera to change that is a real PITA.
