I am surprised that the aesthetics....knobs,prism height, etc. are getting so much attention and the sensor so little. Maybe the majority read DXO but have not shot much with a D4? If you shoot any low light/available light locations, then I expect you might like this body regardless of aesthetics. Yes, I have owned the D800(e) and expect the D610 sensor is very good looking at test scores, but IMHO neither can be as good as the D4 sensor in low light. It is also interesting to read about the many virtues of Oly MFT sensor being one of the best MFT ever(and I agree). I also can jump on the band wagon about the Fuji X sensor. So while those are two very nice small footprint cameras I have owned, why isn't the Df getting gushed about a little more? I would certainly think that at base ISO and all through the spectrum that the Df will have significantly less noise than the Oly? I would certainly think that in nearly all handling applications that the Df might provide a more enjoyable user experience than the clunky Fuji? There are some nice lenses for each system and it would be hard to call Nikon lacking in this area. I guess I am just saying that a D4 sensor in a smaller form factor might be a better tool for some jobs than a lot of other "retro styled" systems out there if ultimate portability is not your primary criteria. I am thinking that a Df with a handful of f1.8 g primes would give you the ability to produce some pretty nice files in a very wide range of lighting conditions. I know for me the D4 sensor is worth the price of admission and with it I feel I will be getting a kit a little more capable than some of the current media darlings for some situations. I will have a little more bulk, but I will also have the FF DOF and low noise accross my whole ISO range. I won't have 36mp like another new comer, but I will still be able to print beautiful 16x20 prints and won't have quite the demand on technique and preperation that I feel the new Sony may ask for? Anyway, like or hate the way Nikon did retro, all my dollars ask for is to keep that D4 sensor behind some semi to fast glass and I think I will get a lot of use out of the new Df.
Just another opinion!
