I'm not usually one to jump on the gear leak bandwagon. There are plenty of sites out there just for that. But, I've been following this one pretty closely, and I decided to share the latest. Why? 'Cause I'm a hit whore. I mean, "Nikon Df," and "whore" are guaranteed to drive my search rankings through the roof! Anyway, here's one of the pictures that's been floating around today.
It's not a bad looking camera, really. As you can see, it's bristling with knobs and buttons. There's a shutter speed knob next to the shutter button, and on the other side, an ISO knob and an exposure compensation knob for +/- 3-stops. It has good specifications, a "full-frame" 16.2MP sensor, and will work with virtually any Nikon lens or accessory you can throw at it; both AI and non-AI lenses are supported, along with all the more modern lenses. It is more like an F3 than an FM, which is in many ways a disappointment.
The leaked price is the killer, though. Nearly $2750.00 for the body. Guess what? At that price, there'll be no Nikon movement for me! If I were to go full-frame right now (which I won't), the choice would be a Sony Alpha 7 with the appropriate lens adapter to use my Minolta lenses, despite the slightly awkward shutter release position.
