Re: Neither helps a camera w cleaner high ISO but that can't focus in low light ;-)

(2) your argument can easily be reversed. Of course a GX7 is a bit noisier than a D800 - and it had better be, considering that this is a much smaller much lighter much cheaper camera, with a sensor with half the area! So you're saying "what's the use of a GX7 focusing down to -4EV if the files are going to be terrible?" To which one could just as easily counter, "what's the use of a camera with great low-light files, if it can't focus in low light levels?"

Thing is... I don't have and have never had a problem in the slightest with the AF on my Df. So for me and the way I shoot, I get the cleanest high ISO files on the planet (which is of upmost importance to my work). 90% of the time I'm shooting in near-enough complete darkness!

So to state "it can't focus in low light levels" is a total nonsense.

If one wants to shoot sports with the D4 sensor, then it might make more sense to use a D4.

If Nikon had included the D4 AF module in the Df, sales of the already niche D4/S would surely grind to a halt... (I realise there are other differences but not x2 priceĀ  )
