I think the top half looks great, I think the bottom half looks like any other nikon. I would have loved to have seen a traditional stop down lever.
I would also loved to have seen a 'thumbs up' style rest, where the film winder would have been.
The kit lens doesn't even have an aperture ring.......
Yes, stop down lever would have been a nice touch, at least it's got a prominent button, unlike my 6D that makes me wish for Elastic Man superpowers every time I reach for it.
Hadn't thought of the winder lever/thumb rest, good catch, had to go handle the AE-1 to recall the feel, maybe a lever there could be for BBF, er, BLF?
Missing aperture ring indeed, that was one of the first things to catch my eye.
I've worn out two digital Nikons, still breaking in my first digital Canon, EVERY time I've picked up any of those 3 DSLRs, I lament the missing aperture ring, I really, really miss those.
I was downright giddy when I first handled my daughter's S90, aperture ring on steroids!!
........ retro fixie bike way.....
been there, got the bike long before there were Hipsters, got the t-shirt.
......adorned in flares and a kipper tie........
Um, please Paul, what's a kipper tie??
I really like the look of this Nf but I'm ticked enough at Nikon from experience, I've got a few more years (at least) of saying and meaning "I never ever want to own another Nikon" that I just can't consider owning this new beauty.
Does make me continue to wish for a Pentax dLX, LXd, whatever they'd call an LX like, FF digital.
