These cameras were never intended to be the fastest, the most feature-laden, or the most technologically advanced in Nikon's lineup

I agree. But, for me, the DF does not seem romantic at all. I apologize in advance if my words are harsh, but Nikon had the resources to go all the way with this, and did not. Nikon chose to instead insult the very opportunity it had.

I empathize with those who want something a little more pure, a little more romantic, a little more familiar. I've been dreaming of an exact copy of my dad's Pentax Spotmatic but with a digital sensor inside. So when the rumors of the Nikon DF started showing up a long time ago, I was very excited, and have been following the news around it. When it came out, I was greatly disappointed. I was reminded of the Canon EOS-M, which said to me, "Yeah, we could've done something cool here, but whatever."
