Amazon let the cat out of the bag a little early after it showed up on a product listing earlier today. The price for the body only is $2750, while the Nikon Df with the new 50mm f/1.8G lens is $3000. Additionally, the main features of the camera were confirmed.
The money is not leaving my wallet anytime soon. Nikon continues to miss the mark. The D800 is spot on, so is the D7100. What else have they done right lately.
The Nikon 1 system is a flop. Everyone except Canon is kicking their rears in mirrorless.
The Retro craze….. Give the award to Fuji, Olympus and even Panasonic.
Small dslrs….. The award goes to Canon or Olympus.
Nope, this is another miss by a mile. If it was $1600 with the 50mm 1.8, it would be a winner, but not at $3K.
Greedy, greedy Nikon
So it's a full-frame D7000/D7100 with a retro-body and manual dials. $3000 – THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS – maybe lots of pros with big budgets and sponsorships may think that's not a lot of money. (Hm, let me see… there's Joe McNally… and… um, anyone else?) But for the "rest of us" this is a hell of lot of money of a status symbol.
I completely agree with Darren here that if it was even below $2K, it would be a winner. But $3K? That's absurd. Just my (poor-azz) humble opinion.
