Re: Trying to decide between DF and D610, IQ differences

If you want to operate at high ISO, the Df has the better sensor.  The Df also has an AF ON button.  If you were to see an X-Ray view of the DF, you'll see that it has more magnesium than the D600/D610.  At lower ISOs, the Df outperformed the D4.  Both the Df and D4 have Nikon designed sensors.  I even have non-AIS lenses that I can use with the Df.  I used to have a D600 (no spot issues) but I sold it for a Df.  I could tell right away that the IQ on the Df looked better than the D600.  Of course the D600 has more MPx than the Df but if I want more details, I'll go to my D800.

This is a snap I took at Disneyland.  My Minolta Flashmeter VI measured the scene at EV2.  The Df auto-focus worked quickly and the image didn't have the splotchy grain that the D600 had.
