Re: I think the OP is taking the wrong less from the X-T1...

He's relating the X-t1 to the Df but realistically the Df being a FF camera is targeting a different market with size, price and performance.

There is for me a gap in the market when it comes to more compact but higher end ASPC systems that Canon and Nikon have not so far targeted. I actually think this lies behind alot of mirrorless sales in the west, you can't buy a really well made small DSLR with controls setup for high end use.

Whilst I think Nikon need a direct rival to Canon's SL1 theres also IMHO room in the market for a higher quality camera of similar size, perhaps with styling and controls similar to the Df.


If Nikon would produce a smallish D5XXX-sized APS-C camera with features similar to the D7XXX I believe they would sell loads of them.  Even if the price were in the D7XXX range, I would be in line to purchase such a camera.  This might just be what will be required for them to compete with the likes of cameras such as the X-T1, or whatever follows it.

I just don't have time to get in a hurry.
