| p.1 #4 · Handled the DF today at my local shop... |
I hate to say, here we go again ... but ya... there are basically two camps on the Df -- those who love it, and those who hate it -- and a few in between who can't seem to make up their mind.
If you look at it from a fresh perspective --- ie: a) Its not trying to be an old camera, and b) its not trying to be a DSLR either .... then this camera rocks!
what it is to me is an old styled lightweight camera designed for use with primes, not meant to be used for fast paced photography, or tracking formula one racing cars. It's designed for the photo enthusiast who likes to take it a little slower, and think about the image before its created, its for those who like to do street photography, and live in the moment.... capture the light, make beautiful images.
It's not a D610, its not a D3S .... its not........ It's a whole new camera, albeit - with a few flaws, but hey, look at Nikon's history - not every camera they released was always rocket science - sometimes it took a few versions to get it right.... and the Df does what it does really well - and maybe the next one will be that much more special....
but in my books, this first offering is pretty rocking.... and I can't wait to get mine this week.
