DF - life after 8 yrs with a D200

I bought my first digital camera, though not my first Nikon, almost exactly 8 years ago. By the time I was ready to consider upgrading the D300S was starting to seem a bit old fashioned so I waited. And waited and waited…

This summer I almost gave up on a pro-DX and went for a D800 but now it was a year and a half old. So I waited dome more. The Df looked good, to my eye at least, and offered the image quality of the D4 for the price of a D800. In the end the Df offered the better balance of feature.

After a couple weeks and a couple os thousand photos I am quite satisfied. A D800 or D610 or even D7000 would also have been a big improvement over my D200, but not perhaps in as satisfying a package.
