Retzius: is "handmade in sweden" a good thing? I can't think of anything else that is supposed to be good because it is "handmade in sweden"...

I think "hand assembled" might have been more correct. The parts for the camera (and most of the other things everyone mentioned) were not actually made in Sweden, just final assembly (jam and fisk aside). Does that count?

Many washed out, overexposed, blurry photos with overly pretentious titles like "The Unbearable, the Sadness, and the Rest"

The Nikon Df is really a niche camera... I think for the intended purposes of this article the D500 would much better fit the criteria. The obsession with "full frame" is really outdated thinking IMHO.

So happy Nikon made a Pro DX body. Now I finally have a Pro DX body to use with all those Pro DX lenses that they made!

;)

in marketing speak, "co-engineered" means a Leica rep flew over and they have one face to face meeting

Retzius: The cheap nifty 50 is a great idea to get more people into the system.

The 70-300 seems outrageously priced when you consider the price of the DSLR alternative.

It may be a "G" lens but it doesn't even have a distance scale...

The ironic thing is that I was a long term D200 user that patiently waited YEARS for a D400/D500 until one day, after almost 300k clicks, the D200 finally started having issues. At the time (end of 2014), with no D400/D500 in sight and with Nikon being ridiculously tight lipped about any possible replacement, I caved in a bought a D7000 at the fire sale price of $499.

Much to my surprise the D7000 is great and serving my needs well. Now, if I have to upgrade in the future I will likely get a D7200 because I have adjusted to the body style.

Moral of the story:

Nikon shot themselves in the foot by abandoning the Pro DX segment for so long that by forcing them to the D7k series they gave up many potential sales of body upgrades along the way. If Nikon had behaved like any rational company, I would have purchase the D400 (had it been released) when my D200 gave out and would have likely purchased the D500 after release.

Looks like ISO 400 on my good old Nikon D200 :)

So Nikon recommends DX lenses with its professional level DX camera (the D500) and then doesn't make a professional level DX lens lineup.

Ok then

In reply to:

Retzius: Will they release a pink one and call it the QT?

They could include a Hermes bag, a Gucci wrist strap, and a LV lens cloth and sell the package for $9999; at select boutiques only.

If tried to 'get a life' at a Leica store but it cost 5 times more than everywhere else...
