D4 sensor isn't anything special among these great generation of Nikon (Sony) sensors. It's a perfect compromise for file size and speed of the D4. That they put that sensor in Df is partly marketing (to suggest that you buy a D4 for half of the price, which is a joke ogf course) but most of all to maximize rendability of the development cost of D4 sensor. Both D610 and D800 sensors are significantly better at low iso.

Some of us bought the Df because of the Df sensor, considering 50% of the time I'm shooting at ISO 5000 or higher, and yes, I have a D800 & D800E, and use that when shooting below ISO 3200.
