Default Anyone using the Nikon df?

Just curious as to why it is more expensive (700.00 more) than the Nikon 610. Seems like a no brainer to buy the 610 as both are full frame.

James,

The Nikon DF use the D4 sensor so it offer a better IQ at high ISO's.

Curiously, the D610 beats the D4 in the DXO labs on colour depth and dynamic range- and pretty much equal on high iso performance..!

The D4s just sneaks a small edge in high iso performance... though I doubt it'd be noticeable..!

Interesting info, Im agree that color depth and dynamic range are very similar, about ISO performance is not a big difference but the D4 files has better IQ at high ISO;s.

The strong point of the Nikon DF is the capability of the camera to use legacy lenses.
