    @hark

    Here is a shot from last night just pointed up at the sky. I'm impressed with how well the camera pulls in the star light.

    Nikon DF, 50mm, f/2, ISO 1600, Exposure 4 seconds

    Straight out of camera.

    A little enhancing.

    Re: Need DF people to answer quickly, please.

    My 2 cents - its a VERY niche camera and besides D4+ sensor that does render noticeably different to at least 600 from what I notice, and recycling EL14's while getting pro level life out of them indeed, the ONLY reason to get a Df is purely aesthetic. There has never been a digital like it, and from the smell of it there won't be anytime soon if ever (and lord Fuji toys don't count).

    Backup/pure bang-for-buck function-wise, I'd honestly get another 750 or even a 500 to have that wildlife AND night time edge.

    Nor does the Df bring that pure fun and unadulterated enjoyment that Fuji X-Pro series does - it still feels like a Nikon, and a pro level at that, so once you're familiar with anything FX it will forever feel like an FX camera.

    My personal vice is appreciation of the gear's aesthetics perhaps more than the purpose of it in the first place, and thus flaunting it to help self-marketing in social/pro situations. I know majority couldn't care less about these things, nor do they own nor lust after the camera to go with their 45/2.8 AI-P.

    A used Df with 22k clicks is advertised locally for $1,500. It's Craigslist, so I could probably chew a little off the asking price. The only reason I would want it is for better low light capability than my D800 and D600.

    And it looks cool.

    Thinking...

    That sounds like an exceptional offer, it certainly provides better low light capability than my D800 did, against the D600 it would be a close call - if you're comfortable with the very average AF performance (I use MF lenses so doesn't worry me) it sounds like a good deal.

    I have the D600, it is not even close or in the same ballpark as either my D750 or Df. The Df does share the same focus system as the D600, and even though it's not great, I've really had not problems with it under stadium lights.

    @Moab Man

    You planning to shoot wrestling with it?

    I have been wanting one of these for a while but figured I would use it for mostly portraits. It's not a speed demon but neither is my 600 that keeps on ticking.

    After you get some use with it I would like to hear your thoughts if have time.

    I will shoot wrestling with it. This is my go to camera when lighting is at it's worst. As to the frame rate, because I'm so familiar with wrestling, and can see what's going to happen, I can live with the slower shutter rate.

    The only real complaint I have is going to auto ISO. You have to go through the menu - not quick. I need to sit down and see if I can assign a button.

    Cool, I think it would well knowing our experience with the sport. Looking forward to hear what you find out. The lighting situations are tough for the 600, but I make it work as my next purchase will be a 300 2.8, hopefully if the wife approves.

    If you can swing it, get a Df. Two worlds apart between the D600 and the Df.
