Thanks Graham. I assume that this focus aid is only possible with the newer lenses with electronic contacts?
...yes I do think you are right in some way, it has something to do with (wrong or right-) market strategy...but, looking to the right, on the shelf, there is my old Nikon 28TI, which was claimed uncontinued because it was too expensive to produce, but wonderful to look at. I think all those buttons and Wheels are expensive to produce too, and perhaps they are psysically not able to produce millions and millions a year. So therefore they had to set the Price, so that they realistic could catch up production wise, together with, that it might be expensive to produce compared with more normal “pure” electronic cameradevices (+ the fact it has the D4 sensor).Splendid attitude Thorkil, same here: but I don't think it's taxes (here at least), but Nikon making lots of extra dosh, which isn't quite the same thing.
just checking prices:
Df +50 1.8 £2749 ($4400) B&H $2996
I agree that the camera is a mixed bag...good and not so....The price of the Df is slightly cheaper here in Japan, about 2500$ for the body
I just couldn't get around the fact how uncomfortable it felt in my hand...
The grip is too short and too narrow for my hand and I knew it would be very difficult for me to use it for longer periods of shooting.
