Df – Why?

To me, the Df is one sexy body! And as someone who has a Nikon collection starting with the rangefinder, I love the whole concept of the camera. With that being said, I can understand many’s questions filling up my email box, Df – why?

I have to admit, I like the whole concept about having a “retro” looking and “modern” functioning DSLR. There is most definitely a romance to it that hooked me instantly. Knowing it has the same guts as my beloved D4 doesn’t hurt one bit either. But answering the question “why” when it comes to the business side of photography, or the practical side of problem solving, I don’t have an answer for folks. I’m already receiving a ton of email asking for comparisons between the Df, D4, D610 and I have none (and this blog post is why you’re not getting an email response). The tag line in the Df marketing though I think does answer in large part the “why” question for me personally. Putting the passion back into your photography. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that’s something I talk about, a lot. And for that reason, it makes 100% sense to me. Being a romantic, having a piece of gear in hand that puts you in “the” mood can only help your photography!
