The Nikon Df is the world’s only retro-styled DSLR. Featuring a state-of-the-art full-frame 16 megapixels sensor with ISO 50 to 204,800 range in a weather-sealed body with numerous direct dials plus dual control-dials, the Df offers the most compatibility with Nikon F-mount lenses ever seen in a digital camera. It supports non-AI lenses which predate 1977 thanks to a retractable metering coupling tab.

A review of the Nikon Df was just published at Neocamera. This review takes a thorough look at the latest Nikon DSLR with a critical eye on its new and unique design. A comparison of image-quality under controlled-conditions with the flagship D4 is included as well as a full-resolution gallery of images taken at every full-stop ISO the Df is capable of.

The Nikon Df offers an opportunity to control the camera with analog-style controls while maintaining the flexibility and rich feature-set of a modern DSLR with one exclusion, movie mode. Well, there is no built-in flash either but that is common among full-frame DSLRs and the Df sports both a standard hot-shoe and sync-port for external lighting.

Review the review here to learn about the Nikon Df’s usability and performance.

The Fuji X-E2 is Fuji’s latest high-end mirrorless camera and it offers the same 16 megapixels X-Trans CMOS II sensor as on the highly acclaimed X100S reviewed here. This unique sensor offers a special 6×6 color-grid-array which requires no anti-alias filter plus built-in Phase-Detect AF, making the X-E2 one of only two mirrorless without an anti-alias filter and Phase-Detect AF. This promising combination of critical sharpness and speed is the focus of Neocamera’s in-depth Fuji X-E2 review.

The Fuji X-E2 follows the similar-looking X-E1 with a great number of very welcome usability improvements which are highlighted (quite literally) in the just published review. The X-E2 holds Fuji’s lead among mirrorless cameras, delivering superb image-quality with competitive performance for their ever-expanding system.

Read the Fuji X-E2 review for all the details. The image-gallery which provides full-resolution images at all full-stop ISO sensitivities, illustrates well what the X-E2 is capable of.
