Pros: Best ergonomics with manual focus lenses (Nikkor, Zeiss, Voigtländer...). Excellent sensor. Reasonable size and weight. Endless battery life with MF lenses.

Cons: Expensive. Relatively small AF zone. One-handed exposure compensation operation is not easy.

Opinion: When I bought it in 2014, it was supposed to be my backup camera, flanking the D800. Within months, it became my main, and most of the time my only camera. It is my *daily* companion since then (we are in 2021). This preference coincides with my other preference, namely for compact manual focus lenses. Being able to operate the aperture ring keeps the left hand busy; besides, the aperture wheel (on the front right) is a bit too small and stiff, which hurts your fingers. Ergonomics aside, the main reason for the preference over the D800 is, the sensor delivers better images (better color balance, lower noise at equal viewing size; about 1 EV advantage). I can be safely used up to 12800 ISO (color) or 25600 ISO (B&W). To feel comfortable, the Df should be used with a DK-17M magnifying eyepiece; it does not restrain the field of view if you do not wear glasses. The "Quiet" mode is sure not very quiet compared to a Leica, but still very useful (less noise of course, and a gentler mirror slap).

Pros: the perfect camera for travel; lightweight body, very good quality of jpg, battery life

Cons: battery cover comes off: never try to change the battery during a walk; the price

Opinion: The review is based on the experience with the previous equipment: from the Russian range-finder zorki 4 through DDR-made practica MTL3, and finally: Nikons: F601m, F100, FM2, FM3a, D700, D5500, D7100. Unfortunately, the images conveyed by diapositives (Fuji velvia100, 50; provia 100) shown on a large screen (160 cm) cannot be compared with the digital images on 30 inch monitor. From all respects the former make a better impression, at least regarding the color tones and making an impression of multi-plan views. The photos shown in my modest galleries here do not reflect the overall attractiveness of dias. Moreover, Fuji reala 100 gave beautiful color tones. Since now both velvia and reala disappeared we have to use digital cameras. They should be compared only with their digital counterparts. Nikon D700 gives very good images of human faces and close lying subjects. Since its jpg s are unusable it is very inconvenient for travel photography. We have to reckon with spending hundreds of hours at PP. I have also tried D750 for 3 days and happily returned it to the shop, since 10 % of images were unsharp (with nikkor 24-120 f4*). The jpgs were very precise but mostly ugly and unattractive. Nikon D7100 cannot be used indoors without a flash, since max ISO is ca 800. This is a good camera for a good weather. I guess that D8XX will be similar, but I have no experience. Nikon Df is free of these drawbacks It can be used as a travel camera in all cases: outdoor and indoor. The jpg files at standard settings are attractive and, simultaneously, highly correct. Be careful with raw files-they are huge. The peculiar feature of Nikon Df is very accurate and pleasing rendering of green shades, which is a crucial factor in the landscape photography. In contrast, all other cameras mentioned above render the green colors of nature incorrectly. The worst tones appear during the sunsets. Nikon Df is a tactile camera; the change of settings can be done without putting the body to our eyes. This is vitally important for our safety, when we walk along the stones of mountain ridges , cross the rocky saddles, traverse the hillsides. On the other hand the constant change of settings is indispensable in forests, e.g. going along levadas of Madeira, we have to introduce the exposure compensation carefully (e.g -.7) and have a constant control over ISO. ************************************************************************************************************************ * Now I know that this lens was in fact spoiled, just D750 disclosed its defficiency; this lens failed to work some months later. Thus, this lens should not be bought used, it is very delicate, the reason is VR. I am withdrawing hereby my criticism towards AF in D750, but jpgs are much worse than those from Df.

Pros: Goes with every conceivable Nikon lens, relatively compact and lightweight, old-fashioned feel, bright viewfinder, aesthetics

Cons: Sensor not very dense, AF not very responsive, you could mount a focus slide with broken image to improve the focus in manual, cost

Opinion: A real whim to have fun with the old optics: having several AI and pre-AI with the Df I was able to put back into service a series of lenses that had been languishing in the closet for about ten years. It's a 2013 machine and you could have already mounted the '24 sensor of the D600, but Nikon preferred to mount one from '16 perhaps not to infuriate the performance of the older Nikkor ... some of which hold up very well even with sensors denser than that of the Df. The viewfinder is bright and allows a rather easy manual focus, I share the opinion of someone according to which a broken image slide would have made things easier, or at least would have really brought us back to the glory days of Nikon film, who knows. When using a pre-AI lens, the iris must be set twice: on the lens and on the front ring. You soon get used to using old-fashioned controls such as exposure compensation or using the switch, made in imitation of the old-fashioned shutter block, with one finger. Curiously he feels less the micro-bump of the older sisters, but perhaps it is just a feeling due to the smaller format of the images. Lighter and less bulky than its sisters, especially when using lenses such as the pancake 50 1.8 or the 45 2.8, it lets itself be taken for a walk without weighing on the neck. Contrary to what many claim, the ergonomics of this machine is more than acceptable. I talked about the slow and not very functional AF with low light, but in the end you do not take such a machine to use it with modern lenses, although it is possible to mount even the most recent ones. Ultimately a nice and fun machine, perhaps an updated version with a '24 sensor and a lower price could have ensured a future for this model, which however remained in the catalog for a long time. Today Nikon wanted to retrace the same road (chasing Fuji on its own ground, that of APS with old-style aesthetics) with the Z fc, we will see if there will be the courage to make it an Fx.

Pros: Sensor with superlative dynamic range, high iso rendering, aesthetics, lightness, incredibly clean and three-dimensional files, image colors, feeling of having something truly unique

Cons: Few pixels (compared to today's standards), wearable tires, uncertain autofocus with low light, SLR now out of production.

Opinion: I joined Juza Photo more than anything else because I felt the duty to pay homage to my favorite SLR. In fact, as the owner of both the Df and the Nikon D850 I can say that the files of the first are able to withstand the comparison (and in some situations even beat) the superpixxellata sister. Obviously, it is my personal opinion and I have absolutely no pretense of dictating absolute truths. However, every time I compare the files of the two machines I always have the feeling that the photos of the Df have a level of realism and beauty slightly higher than the monstrous D850. It may be that a few but large pixels collect light better, but the three-dimensionality of the Df images has something stunning. The car is light, excellent for portraits, it is also a pleasure to take it to the city to make the street (its privileged field of action, in my opinion), but it is also great for hiking in the mountains, to make landscaping. The relatively low number of pixels is always misleading: in fact, the details it manages to churn out, especially with certain lenses (Nikkor 35 1.8 G, tamron 35 1.8 SP G2 and Nikkor 50 1.8 G) leave you speechless. The colors are always faithful and exciting, but I repeat the three-dimensionality is really its strong point. Even in the shots of a landscape, made by closing the aperture at f8-f11, you can clearly perceive the detachment of the planes, which is usually noticed / enhanced only with wider openings. But there are also flaws: the autofocus does not shine in low light, and this is really a shame given the sensor, made specifically to give its best in these situations. But above all, given the price of the car, it is unforgivable that the tires wear out soon, sometimes even expanding. The Df, however, is so beautiful and performing that it is gladly accepted to have to send it to the assistance service every now and then, to give it a 'refresh'. That sensor inherited from the D4 has something magical. It's true, you can't do extreme crops because of the 16 mpx but what these few pixels give you.. However, the fact that it costs a lot and does not guarantee the video-function has attracted a lot of criticism. But after all, it was not born for a modern and frenetic use. You take 'reasoned' photos of them and it is essential to associate certain lenses, preferably fixed lenses. Among the various lenses with which I tried it I can say that the most beautiful colors I saw them with the Sigma 50 1.4 Art, the Tamron 35 1.8 SP and the Zeiss Planar 50 1.4. Among the zooms, however, I saw shine especially the Tamron 70-200 2.8 G1. Its ideal completion, however, remains the fabulous Nikkor 58 1.4 G: there you have in your hands the top for portraiture. A note of merit for the humble and mistreated 50ino 1.8 G that is associated with it in kit. Lightweight, fast in af, with pleasant and balanced colors and with a respectable sharpness from f2.8 upwards. What can I say.. extraordinary machine, unique, and probably unrepeatable. Dispassionate advice: be wary of the various negative reviews or comparative on sensors, the realism of an image or colors that know how to excite are things not quantifiable by graphs or mere technical specifications. The Df must be tried in person to realize how well it is performing in these respects. This controversial machine is also capable of churning out amazing photos both with old lenses and with the latest generation of glass, and not only at high iso (as its sensor would let you imagine) but also at the basic ones, for uses (landscape, architecture, still life) that would seem to be the prerogative more than anything else of high-resolution machines. In my opinion, the DF will continue to be monstrous even in 2022. Those who still find some new ones to buy, or used but in good condition, consider themselves kissed on the forehead by Fortune. Good light to all.
