    It is very much a "Marmite camera" and certainly not bling - I bought mine used with 13k shutter actuations at almost half the new price. I purchased mine because I wanted a D4 sensor in a smaller and lighter body with a tactile input option, it does meet and exceed my expectation which is the critical factor for me and like all equipment makes it a very personnel choice.

    Unfortunately many who criticize the camera and see it as "Bling" have probably not handled let alone taken images with it - what a shame they are so quick to judge without trying it and seeing just what it can deliver.

    We should all remember that many "Official reviews" are sponsored by the manufacturer who are trying to boost sales of a particular model.

    Igor, I just love your website and the photos you have in it, a variety of subjects and styles.

    Do you use the DF for your professional work (I know this shot is with the DF) and in the studio?

    I haven't tried a DF but am still amazed by the quality of photos taken with my D610. Many people say to go with the D750 over the D610, but the D610 is no slouch. And with the price of the D610, it's a fantastic way to enter the realm of FX.

    However, I really like the looks of the DF and am under the impression is too is a fantastic camera. Fortunately we don't have to squeeze into the one-size-fits-all mentality!

    Thanks Ian! So, given 600 and free shutters, I do my best to put all the mileage on it rather than Df, but when I know I'll be networking/strolling around town/doing night life without flash/sneaking into a concert as a "pos hipster camera" then it's Df all the way! And especially for networking, Df is like wearing a full on suit w/ a tie vs a sports jacket and an untucked T - people notice it's different, people ask about it and then get to see what it can do.

    Aesthetics are very important, and liking them even more so to help with overall workflow zen. You can drive stick or auto and both will get you from A to B, but in a completely different experience.

    Now, 750 being more of a bargain I can see, but 610? The name of the game is low light ISO ability here, and assuming video isn't necessary. It's no slouch for sure, but 600/610 is NOT a Df.

    I attended the local drag hunt meet on Boxing Day and had the DF with 24-120 to compliment the D500 with 300mm.

    The DF did a superb job and captured some images I am really pleased with, these are a few - the first image if of the Earl's mansion house as he owns the park.

    I just realized that I've been neglecting promoting the Df. It has a great sensor, it's light and fun to use. So I'll post a few pics done this month.
