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: Light, compact, immediate analog controls, wonderful sensor

Cons: Excessive price; one SD memory slot

Opinion: Beautiful machine, perfect as a second body or to go out light without losing in quality. I had it in practice provided to me by a friend and honestly I would like to buy it as a second body to accompany my D850. Only it costs too much to be new for my taste. I'll look for a good used, maybe someone who was disappointed...

Pros: Sensor yield, High ISO performance, Weight and size, Aesthetics, Value on the used market.

Cons: Limited AF area, only one SD slot.

Opinion: Socket used with very few shots to support the D810 and Fuji X100S, has become the body I use more and with greater satisfaction.rnMonta a sensor in my opinion fantastic that produces exciting files that I would call velvety, limited only in case of extreme crop for via the low pixel density, a feature that, however, allows super performance at high ISO. In practice it is the exact opposite to the 36mp of the D810.rnWithstanding the limited weight is ergonomically more uncomfortable compared to D8xx type bodies ... but, as far as I'm concerned, it is tremendously beautiful, especially if coupled with vintage optics with dimensions not excessive.rn

Pros: fantastic sensor, aesthetic, manual setting rings, timeless charm.

Cons: Do not have it.

Opinion: beautiful and powerful subject, a mind-boggling photo sensor are made to ISO 3200 with the noise of a d810 200 iso.rnEstetica beautiful and in my opinion unbeatable, maybe it could be better cared for in some small details but has a shape that falls well in hand and a weight that makes it unbalanced at times with the zoom of the holy triad but nonetheless I I fall in love every volta.rnNon is a machine born to express the absolute photographic performance, it is an object made to leave a smell in the hands of amarcord those who use it and to revive a bit of emotion to those who grew up with really beautiful f.rnImmagini series, as nice as macchina.rn

Pros: The sensor, the manual setting rings, nighttime performance.

Cons: Lack of double SD slot, comfortable grip, however, not justified by aesthetics.

Opinion: Meanwhile, I tell you that I bought the Df (black) based on recommendations here on Juza and all previous reviews to mine and for this I thank you. The Nikon Df is a machine to itself, do not come out new versions every year. The Df is a timeless classic. Italo Calvino said: "A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say." Here, I think this is Df, a good car right now and valid even 10 years. Do not buy it for its technical characteristics, it is not meant to impress you in that sense. If you're a fan of numbers and trendy processors you are in the wrong place. Buy at if you are convinced you want something different from what the market offers nowadays. It is not an inexpensive car and buy new today does not make sense to me. Look for a good used with "a few" shots. You do not find many around but if you are lucky you will struggle to find even a Df in excellent condition. I think a fair price for this machine is around 1800-1500 euro with less than 100k shots. I I found one with9K in perfect condition with Nikon warranty until the end of 2017. I brought the machine with me on my last trip to Lapland, what about ... turned out to be a great traveling companion. It rectum perfectly rigid temperatures (-20 degrees) Finns. I used two lenses: a Samyang 14mm f / 2.8 and a Tamron SP 24-70mm f / 2.8. With the Tamron that light is not the weight he is beginning to feel guilty even of the low grip of Df. It is not comfortable to grip but what matters most is the habit. Maybe you could think of a Gariz housing that improves the grip as well as protecting of the camera body. We come to the manual controls and its rings: comfortable and beautiful! They are beautiful to see and comfortable to use, return a very special feeling and you get used to the reasoned photography. With this machine you will make fewer shots and it cestinerete far fewer. The ISO sensitivity dial is slightly more uncomfortable than the other because of a security key to be pressed each time to unlock the rotation of the ring.I have learned now to handle this thing with my thumb and forefinger of his left hand. The ring on the shutter speed is much more convenient even if you realize with time that is more convenient to keep it set to 1/3 and change the shutter speed (full scale) from the secondary wheel placed in front of you, it made of less noble materials and possibly subject to wear over time. The Df has many more keys, front, rear and side, all customizable. I think the night photography is one of its strong points. In Lapland I pulled out pictures of very high standard and with a really noticeable noise even at ISO rather high. The raw files are very heavy, and at times seems not to have need of postproduction. I think the Df from the best of the old with fixed lenses, where fun is guaranteed. I either like it or hate it and I love her. I do not ever sell it. I believe that now is (aesthetically speaking) the number one. Love her!
