I wonder how much of the "Made in Japan" factors into the cost of the Df? At what price point does the Df would no longer be consider overpriced?

I just picked up a Df 50mm kit for $2000 USD from the store. I am still deciding if I should return it and get the D610. LOL

You got a great deal, was that for a new Df kit? I paid $2199 for an open box Chrome Df, with just 3 exposures on the body. Very happy with it. I love the image quality and the shutter is so quiet, it's the best by far shutter sound of any Nikon camera I've ever owned.

I would think that the Made in Japan aspect of the Df adds $200-300 to the price of the camera. I can definitely tell the difference in quality between the Df and D750 in the buttons. D750 buttons feel loose and cheap, Df feel tight and high quality.
