Nikon Df - Here it is in all its beauty

The new Nikon Df, official promo video:


Nikon ready to announce retro-styled, manual Df camera

There were lots of teasers and rumors in the last few weeks and the official announcement should be released by tomorrow (November 5). There's even a Facebook fan page already!

Yes Nikon seems ready to ride the "retro camera" movement (pioneered so successfully by Fuji) with its new Df DSLR. While the price seems high ($2,750US for body only), we think there will be strong demand for this camera and it should do well in the marketplace. For that price you also get a 16MP D4 sensor, Expeed 3 processing, and a choice of black or silver. Should be built like a tank too. Still waiting for the full specs. Right on Nikon!
