Re: Is the Df a dud? Friend wants to buy.

The DF is not a dud. It's certainly a very competent camera given the right user to put it through its paces.

But it seems like your friend is enamoured with its styling--especially if she's also looking at the Fuji X series--moreso than its specs, as these two cameras are very different in design philosophy.

If it's just a case of style that she likes, I would probably steer her away from the DF--it's way too overpriced for just liking a style (all else--that being quality--equal, as anything above a point and shoot should be an upgrade anyway). And, as she doesn't have a collection of FF lenses, I would suggest going for a far more stylish camera, which can be more accessorized and portable: the Lumix GM1 would be my suggestion.
