Thanks, Leighton! Yeah, the Fuji X-Pro or X100/s are much more "pure photography" than the Df. The lack of an oldtime-focusingscreen or some sort of hybrid-finder is truly disappointing. Way too many buttons, dials and so on for a clean retro-look. Sorry, Nikon, it might be a very good camera, but not something I wished for.
All I want is D800 electronics grafted into an F3HP body and viewfinder. I'll even take the manual film advance lever to arm the shutter! From my personal shooting experiences, that's Pure Photography. I know the body will have to be thicker to accomodate the sensor and circuitry behind it, and screen, but leave the controls alone, and leave the MLU. I think I can live with 1/2000 of a second, and even the 1/80 flash sync. Maybe brave enough to even skip the display screen. I wonder how long a battery the size of a film canister would last driving an FX sensor + electronics. Sacrificing G lens compatibility, maybe.
Enough gear talk here.... I need to find another MF shot to post, maybe this evening. Or more importantly, get and and shoot with the great MF Nikkors. Think of all the MF lenses you can now buy with the $2800 you saved on the Df Leighton!
