The Df looks like an imaging INSTRUMENT, not a black box of wonders with various goodies buried in menus. The Df is very appealing to the photogs I know because it's causing a more emotional response with them. We don't NEED a Df, we WANT a Df. (or something just like it in the lens mount of your choice)
My discussion with a few friends from the local photo club who are Nikon shooters leads me to only one conclusion. This camera is polarizing opinions one way or the other. Some people love it while some find it infinitely ugly.
I'm not sure how any real Nikon aficionado could be remotely interested in the Df. Of course, I'm basing that statement on the Nikon aficionados here on CR, and the fact that the Df has well over a stop less DR than the cheaper D800 or the much cheaper D610.

+1 If you can't beat 'em, go play somewhere else.
Df = desperate futility
Df = ******* to failure
