Let me, once again, play the devil's advocate in regards to the Df.
What a camera it could have been, but unfortunately, for me , it isn't.
It has super IQ. The files are just so...delicious. Yes, the manual controls, the backward compatibility with lenses etc.
But I have been unable to use the camera for extended periods of time due to some insane person designing the grip. Not deep enough. Not comfortable at all.
The ergonomics lets this camera down, for me. I get cramps in my curled hand/fingers. And then the inconsistent behavior of the various dials. Oh why couldn't they have maintained some consistency in the design of how all dials operate.
I use exposure compensation a lot. This comp dial cannot be assigned to a function key!! One has to use the left hand, pull up the knob ( or is push a button to release ) and then turn the dial to effect exp. comp. I find this unnecessarily tedious..and keep looking through the viewfinder or remove your eyes to look at the dial to set it. Small thing, but for all day use..it is a huge deal for me.
Nikon made it backward compatible with most of their MF legacy lenses. So why not give it a proper focussing screen? What a bummer and only x0.7 mag. What were they thinking?
There are other bits here and pieces there that are beginning to bother me. They distract me from using the cam as a seamless shooting tool. It makes me tired.
I thought it would bring the joy of my previous film Nikons, but it has failed in this for me. Sad. I so wanted it to work. Will I get rid of it? The jury is still out.
The sensor...yes, the sensor. I shall dearly miss it.
What a camera it could have been..well am I glad I still have my D700.
