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.
