Oh so retro

Fuji did it with the X100, Olympus did with the Pen, now it's Nikon's turn.

New Df. Oldschool style with latest tech. If the design hasn't got you (sexy as hell), the spec list is pure porn. FX (full frame), and will work with any F mount lens made since 1959 thanks to a specially designed coupling system. Previously, most digital Nikons can't take the non Ai and Ai-S lenses (pre 1980) as doing so causes damage to the mount itself. You could get them professionally converted but even doing so one was on their own due to no metering or distance data. Not with this thing!

One of the reasons people like the older non Ai/Ai-S lenses is for manual focus. Silky smooth, similar to a Leica system I guess. And now they can be bolted to a digital full frame with the same sensor as their flagship D4....blah blah ramble I just fkn want one ok :drool

They're not exactly cheap for a 16.2mp body, estimated pricing is $3.5k once they land in a couple of months.
This isn't life, it's just stuff. And it's become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that's just nuts
