Will I see a noticeable increase in IQ across the board by going FF or will it only be in certain situations, low light for example? I have a wedding in Cape Town in March that I am attending so was thinking it would be a lot of fun to take to that.

I just spent the weekend shooting a theater festival with a borrowed dF as my second camera, and my regular d800 as the first camera. At high iso, the dF will produce cleaner files than the d800 or the d600. At low iso, the difference is less obvious.

Although I am not specifically looking for a retro-styled body, I did enjoy the smaller size, lighter weight, and even some of the manual controls (exposure compensation especially). The biggest negatives for me are the high price and single card slot.

I think with a good prime lens it would be a fun camera to carry around, and capable of excellent results.
