I was all but certain to buy the Df and I got the cash but now I'm rethinking it.

I've done all the research and I can live with the shortcomings to gain the D4 sensor but now I'm wondering why I don't just save up a bit more and get the D4, especially if a D4S/D4X is coming in January.


If the new D4x/s is introduced, it is likely to be a 56MP sensor. Do you really need that sort of resolution? Think of the data storage needs and high-performance lens selection requirements? Without IBIS, the use of primes will be limited to tripods, apertures of /4 or wider, 1/4000 sec + shutter speeds, and higher ISO in order to avoid the blur. I can count on one hand the glass that's likely to be up to that task.

Seems like a very specialized machine.
