The df on the other hand is exactly a d600 with a d4 sensor in a retro body.
We all know exactly what it is: a d600 with a d4 sensor wrapped up in a retro body and sold at a premium.
The discussion is interesting, but, maybe we all need to use the Df, in hand, at a real shoot, working with a client or at least with a specified goal in mind, then after a few thousand frames we can say yea or nay. My feelings are mixed due to my having used the "F" body so much in the past, and now have a couple modern bodies which I find very easy to use and easy to control. At the present time I cannot say whether I will like the new Df or not. The answer will be found once I can really put my hands on one.

The fstoppers article was crap. Lee himself admitted to that. Elitist bullshit, sorry. So I'm a hipster now because every once in a while I like to take out my father's Minolta or my uncle's M3 and shoot it? I do it for fun - what does that make him, wedding shooter with too much money and not enough time for his own projects looking down on others? Great premise for the owner of a website. In the comments on another thread someone dug up a review of that article that was hilariously angry and spot on.
Someone please enlighten me. If this camera had the D610 sensor in it, there would be absolutely no justification for it to cost more than the D610. Given that the difference in cost between the D610 sensor and the D4 sensor is likely to be minimal, why is it so expensive? I cannot believe that, at conception, this was destined to be anything other than a budget FF. Nikon can't even position it logically in its FF lineup. The only logical place for it is below the D610... Isn't it?
So does everyone think the D7100, D600 (exclude sensor issues) & D610 are all crap? I know I don't read those threads often but I never got that impression.
The specs read like an intentionally crippled D4.
