The Nikon Df isn't for everyone. This is a product that's as much about invoking nostalgia as it is about capturing the moment. Its control setup is slower than a modern DSLR, but should appeal to those photographers who want a camera that feels more like a camera than an electronic device, and its 16MP imaging sensor is excellent.
Good for: Anyone longing to shoot using traditional control dials. Owners of Pre-AI Nikon lenses.
Not so good for: Users of autofocus wishing to work in low light. Photographers looking for the best available technology for their money.
