One thing, a wedding photographer might fall in love with this Nikon... Aside from the gorgeous look (a + from the client), they'll appreciate the "less" MP and high ISO performance (based on D4).

Baffled by this. Did you forget the irony tag?

Clients want the cameras to look "pro" which isn't really, in mainstream, compatible with retro.

No.  I didn't forgot.  To qualify, this DF isn't actually smaller than an average DSLR.  Just look at the chrome finish and it's really screams "professional".

Yeah, screams professionnal just like a ducky ties does. I guess it's personnal tastes but I'd bet that a pannel of non photog would rate a 5d3 (or the nikon equivalent) as looking more professional. Specially with a grip, a white lens on or a mammoth like 85L...

Disagree. I think it looks absolutely professional. And by all standards IS.

This camera is also probably the best street photography camera that exists. The sensor has the lowest noise level of any full frame current DSLR. This is the first compact camera to have a full frame ultra low noise sensor in a compact body. Noise is always my biggest issue in street photography.

The purpose of the Nikon DF is in no way a fashion accessory because a camera is not part of an outfit. If anything it's  a tool that is built in a way that is designed to appeal to the photographer, not onlookers.

Creating art is sometimes about the process more than about the result or performance and having a pleasing tool is nice. Besides that the manual controls make you more involved in the general process.

You mostly right in my opinion. Except for looks of a camera does matter to the photographer.

It looks great to me.
It is priced at what it is priced at because of its appeal. Simple.
And what is is more expensive than?
Not having video does not make it "more" expensive, its niche appeal does.

I applaud Nikon for giving its customers choices.

My negatives to the camera: The design could have been more minimalistic. Yeah!

Why is it silly?

Could you PLEASE list the terrible things you have heard about the 1dx?
Please do not ignore my request, I so need to know.
Thank you MUCH.

D4 sensor in a retro look for cheaper than D4. Success!!!

I like the look and the manual controls.

If Canon comes up with something like this I shall surely buy.

Me too!

I was only born when the last great film cameras were in the last leg of their journey. So I never had the chance to use them, and I am not willing to buy a 30 year old film camera and some films to enjoy those pleasures. So if Canon comes up with something like this and I have the money I will jump onto it like crazy. The silver/black leather version is the one that catches my imagination the most. That is just gorgeous.

What does 'pure photography' imply? To me, it means no video. Could be wrong though...

I was right!

What a fantastic looking camera!

DR is important at every ISO.  No problem with the current DR of Canon sensors.

No problem for you, or for everybody? Do you admit that for some it might be a real problem, not just something in their imagination?

I do not care about high fps, for example. Should I get involved in any discussion about high fps to say: no problem with 3 fps. If you are good photographer, you would be able to nail it even with 3 fps, etc.?

Valid argument.

I think we should all begin to focus on the things we do agree on so as to avoid rehashing so many of the same topics and arguments time and again:

1. The Sony sensor (D800/e) has the most DR from ISO 100-800.
2. DR levels out and advantage is gone after ISO 800.
3. 5D3 sensor does better in higher ISOs.
4. More DR is useful (and nice to have) but not always/or even often necessary.
5. Each sensor has it's own advantages AS WELL as disadvantages neither of which should be ignored when when assessing IQ or level of advancement in technology.
6. Everyone has differing needs when it comes to photography which most of us in here cannot account for.

Things to avoid since they are so clearly untrue/baseless and continue to cause unnecessary debate due to their antagonistic nature:

1. Any blanket statements such as Nikon image quality "trounces" Canon's.
2. Pre-determining whether something is completely unuseful or not before it is in people's hands.
3. Making any other inferences about how good or bad the new bodies will be since again, they are not in people's hands yet.

You taking the spice out. :)

Only tech-addicted photographers give a krapp about sensors - their clients don't, except they are tech-addicts as well.

I am my own client and I am a tech-addict.

Hi, I am Pi, and I am a tech-addict...  :)

Me too.
