Re: The Brilliancy of the Nikon Df

The keenest observation about the Df is how aptly it fulfills the poser mentality that infuses forums like this one and all but obscures clear-eyed considerations about what photography is about. In that sense, Nikon is tapping into a real market, namely that which is sustained by utter boredom-driven search for the next latest-and-greatest gadget.

Tip: gadgets don't capture life. Hearts and vision do.

Very well said. I just started visiting the Nikon FX forum recently and have concluded that the most frequent posters are the ones who are sorely lack any photography skills.

It seems like Nikon have recognized that a good portion of their users have bought into the Nikon name, and really nothing else. They try to make up with equipment what they don't have in vision. The Df is the quintessential camera for them.

But I reckon this isn't exclusive to Nikon. Though the Df saga shows how vapid its supporters can be.
