Re: Df low light AF ability should not even be a question


I absolutely agree.  The Df is what it is.

The frustration that many have is that it could have been much more.  Clearly that was a design/marketing decision at Nikon.  It has a great sensor with low light capability that is not being fully utilized.  Had it been a little bit more than it is, I might have dumped my D800 for the Df.  As it is, I'm ambivalent about the camera.  Autofocus is a step backwards from the D800, and ergonomics are nowhere near as good.

There are some that have the camera who would like to convince us (actually themselves) that its low light autofocus capability is as good as the D800. It is not.  It's just as good as the D600/610.  And that's fine.  It's also just as good as the D700 (per the specifications), which people have used for years in low light settings.

If it's good enough for someone, that's fine.  They don't need to justify their decision on these forums.
