I'll answer very honestly! The DF is not a dud.

It is good looking, not as big as people might think, feels really good in the hand and has nice controls.

AF is GOOD. Some people might clame otherwise. My honest view is that AF is capable and fast even in low light. Image quality is great as everyone knows.

Controls feel a bit plasticky and on the cheaper side, imo. Price is very high.

That brings me to my honest conclusion. I would from my deepest honest heart recommend the Fuji X100S to your friend for the type of shooting she'll be doing.

Why? Because it is almost 1/3 of the price, is more/very compact, has a great EVF that can be very usefull in many situations, amazing lens and has amazing image quality even compared to the DF/D4. Shooting social means people means needing great skintones and i believe fuji has an edge on any brand here. They are absolutely marvelous at that. AF is adequate, ergonomics great and the same external control flexibility like a DF.

Overall the fuji really is the more flexible and logical camera for what she is looking for imo.
