It a great idea but there are a lot of things wrong with it... the focusing screen being the prime offender in my opinion. Good luck manually focusing anything slower than f/2.8. Then there's the no video, the silly button layout, slow flash sync and other things I cant think of during English III class. Ninon could have won. The game could've been over. But they took a great idea and ruined it with a load of silliness.

Same here, if this comes out before D800 I will ordering one already. As much as I like D800's video, I don't use it enough. Pair the Df with 24, 35, 50, and 85 primes, it will be a ultimate travel camera. The D800 just a tag too big to travel but I'm kicking myself only take the RX100 to Japan this week.

I get the feeling that not many people have had the chance to use Canon's 35/2 LTM (M39) lens for Leica Thread Mount. It is a gem of a shooter, but a wart of a user. Poor ergonomics, poor build quality, and rather poor tolerances mar its use as a fun lens. I baby mine like I baby nothing else. Still I'm afraid it will break. But I put up with it primarily because of its lovely bokeh. Yes, it is totally worth it. It is tubular in the front, swirly in the back and smooth in the middle. Dizzying at times, completely pleasurable at others. It is a bokeh that has shape. It doesn't butter things out. 

 

I have a few butter lenses and to be honest, I don't like using them because their butter rendering is dime a dozen, especially today. I've written a long-winded review of the 35/2 over at ohm if anyone is interested. Yes, it's a lens review at a headphone forum. Oh well.

James, it seems you need to clean your camera lens. The image looks a bit cloudy.

Great photo, it reminds me of home.

Picked up the Sony a7r as a replacement for my D800. I think it will take a long time to get used to it. My uses are very simple, but even so, I have a long road ahead. I'm documenting it here.

I'm curious if anyone here is going to get the Nikon DF
It's an interesting piece of hardware for sure
