Will be priced at 3.000$ with kit lens (50 1.8 ) and 2700$ without.

http://nikonrumors.com/2013/11/04/this-is-the-nikon-df.aspx/

 :o

I personally find the Df extremely ugly and would much rather buy the D610 (if I were buying Nikon). 
The pricing also appears to doom the Df to commercial failure IMO, and I must believe some of the Canon executives must have gone over to Nikon camp and took jobs on the "Pricing Committee."   >:(

Or some Leica execs joined the Nikon 'pricing committee' after being booted from Leica for proposing pricing that was just slightly too moderate...

meet the new Nikon Df ... erm the Nikon DOA :-)

Steampunkt design without any functional advantage. Still need both hands to operate it. And best of all: no video, no video! AND expensive as hell. Conclusion? It won't sell. hehehe!

D800 is currently at 2000 Euros - including 20% VAT [Germany] :-)

I was foaming at the mouth when I was buying my first dslr and I found out I wouldn't be using my mechanical cable release anymore. I still refuse to get why this simplest of remotes was scrapped just like that :'(

That doesn't mean I see a use for this camera. Weird. May attract hipsters.

In the end of the 70ies, I bought a AE-1. It became a good a friend of mine and I took it with me on each of my flight.
This would be an good "retro".....

Wait a little bit, claiming to have no video... Maybe there will be an extraordinary IQ. Then everyone will buy it. Even if Nikon sells it at 4000$....
Or: This is a new trend. One body for video, one for stills... So Nikon will earn a lot mor money. (Ts,ts,ts... Canon - You are to late! Normally Canon optimizes the profit, not Nikon.)

That's a DOA price.  This can't cost a penny above the D610 and be viable unless there is something better under the hood that they haven't mentioned yet.

Nothing new under the hood is needed.  What everyone apparently fails to appreciate here is that Nikon is following the oft-quoted ice hockey maxim of skating to where the puck  is going to be  was a long time ago hasn't been yet.  It's not really their fault they think the puck will slide across the ice to the middle of the Sahara Desert.

Actually, it's a reasonable strategy, but they blew the timing.  They should have waited until after Apple made retro cool by launching the completely redesigned 2014 iPod...inside it'll have 128 GB of flash memory, outside it'll look like this:

I like the look and the manual controls.

If Canon comes up with something like this I shall surely buy.
Need to learn a lot more.

Just saw this....... 16 mp ???????

yep. Nikon is re-using the D4 sensor and CPU. 16 MP, Expeed 3. Hi-ISO up to 204800. 
Coupled with D600/610 AF and electornics (4s to 1/4000s shutter speeds).
Wifi as an optional WU-1 wart. ["no clutter. No distractions" said the teaser].
Plus a record number of wheels all over the camera.
And leatherette all the way up to the flash-shoe. [FE style]

ROFLMAO

Sorry to repeat myself. Not sure which thread is likely to be the most viable, but I can't resist these comments.

16 mp sensor: Funny how when Nikon wants to emphasize image quality, they go with fewer megapixels. Maybe they know something about the big megapixel Sony/Nikon sensors that DXOmark doesn't know?

No video: At last, all those who complain about paying for video they never use have an option available. Buy the D800 with video or buy the Df and save yourselves $50. I guess I was wrong and you guys were right. You are are paying more for video capability. Spend that $50 any way you want.
