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: Excellent viewfinder, analog controls, file quality, relative lightness, perfect combination with AI/Ais optics

Cons: Poor efficiency sensor cleaning system, ease with which the battery door is detached

Opinion: I bought this second-hand camera a couple of months ago. For over 10 years I have been at Canon, and even today I am very well with the RF system that I have been joining for two years. But at the bottom of the closet, for many years, were stored an F2as and an FM2n with their good kit of 9 hand-fire optics, including two decentrable. True, I can use these lenses (and sometimes I do) on my Canon Eos R with adapter ring, but the recall of a camera like the Df was very strong, with its mode of use very close to that of the two mechanical SLRs with which I grew up in the 80s, and so I bought it. The perplexity about the relatively few MPXLs has faded immediately thanks to the high overall quality of raw baked by the Df, even and especially when ISOs have to go up. It is necessary to frame carefully, fill the format, and the 16mpxls are enough and advance. The battery life, compared to the R mirrorless, is... embarrassing, you can almost forget about the spare battery. The shot is sweet, but noisy. The viewfinder, although not at the level of that of an F3, is still much better than much of the reflex competition, which, when sealing manually, really makes a difference. My review is very limited by the fact that I didn't try the AF system, which I read to be the Achilles heel of this camera. But I bought it to use it with my old great manual nikkors, so the af this camera may not even have it. Very practical the system of storing and recalling the data of manual objectives (why only 9 storages, however?) as long as you remember to update the lens with each optical change, easy action through a function button and a selection ring. The Df's strengths and file quality are for me, along with a unique "charm", which may not please perhaps those less than half a century old behind them. I use it to wander around, to work slowly, to rediscover the taste of the calm approach, "as if" in the machine there were only 36 frames to shoot. for faster and more challenging things my dear EOS R and their fantastic RF goals are not in question, but within the limits described the Nikon Df is a real pleasure to use. As highlighted above, unfortunately the sensor cleaning system is not much, it is often necessary to resort to blowers or an external technician. Or a little clone stamp; moreover, the battery/board compartment door (why together, then?) tends to detach easily, it seems devoid of a latch. Absurd, especially in the absence of battery grip as accessories. But you put it back in place without too much pain.

Pros: Excellent from the point of view of construction quality and photographic results. An image quality that is appreciated especially with high ISO and with very bright lenses.

Cons: For my expectations and for the motivation of the choice, none.

Opinion: I rediscovered the magic of the colors and complexion of my favorite film in my youth, which was the Professional Agfachrome 50S. Unfortunately very delicate film, to treat the proper attentions, to think that the film was in an aluminum container with screw cap and rubber garnish... It provides excellent results with both very bright and slightly agè optics such as the 85mm f1.4 D or the 80-200 f2:8 pump, and with newer optics such as the 24-120 f4. In my SLR park it is definitely the one that satisfies me the most.

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...
