I have used a lot of cameras over the past fifteen years: Nikon F90X, F100, F4s, F5, F6, D2X, D700 and a Hasselblad X-pan. Recently I sold my trusted D700 and purchased a Nikon D7100 for nature and telephoto photography. When I sold my D700 my plan was to get a Nikon D610, but that changed when I heard of the new Nikon Df camera, that will be released for sale on November 28. Is this camera interesting for nature and landscape photography - I think not, but it sure looks nice.

Many of the advancements in digital photography have enabled new levels of versatility—remarkable ISO sensitivity, breathtaking resolution, ultra-fast performance and more. The Nikon Df is no exception. Like our flagship D4, its 16.2MP FX-format image sensor is paired with EXPEED 3 image processing for an optimal balance of resolution, image quality and shooting speed. Its wide ISO range (100–12,800 expandable down to 50 and up to 204,800) lets you capture sharp low-light subjects with crisp edges, shadow areas that reflect proper, natural tonal gradation and highlights with rich, smooth gradation.
Powerful advanced Nikon technologies - It's no surprise passionate photographers are passionate about Nikon our engineers have invented and perfected some of the world's most important camera features. The Nikon Df continues that legacy of excellence and innovation. It incorporates our outstanding 39-point autofocus system with 9 highly accurate cross-type sensors that work all the way down to f/8. Achieve sharp focus no matter where you subject is within the frame at up to 5.5 frames per second. Quickly adjust white balance with our Spot White Balance feature.

Its rugged magnesium alloy body will withstand harsh conditions, and its 3.2-inch 921K-dot LCD display provides beautiful high-definition views of your shots.
Compatibility beyond compare
Pair with current and past NIKKOR lenses, Speedlights and more - For over 80 years, NIKKOR lenses have been regarded as some of the finest optics available. In fact, photographers are still using NIKKOR lenses 30 or more years old! The Nikon Df wouldn't be a true classic camera if it couldn't work with those lenses, so we developed a mount system that works with all current AF-S, AF-D and AF NIKKOR lenses. Additionally, a metering coupling lever makes it possible to use both AI (Aperture Index) or non-AI lenses. Use i-TTL compatible Speedlights, the AR-3 threaded cable release, Nikon's new WR Remote System and even Nikon's exciting WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter for instant Wi-Fi photo sharing to your smartphone or tablet!
