5 Reasons to Buy a Nikon DF – As underrated as it gets!

This is one of the most hated cameras ever. I couldn’t understand why and after using it Im even more confused. When you get over the specs it doesn’t have and instead look at what it does have, you find a gem.
A quick and snappy full frame DSLR with external controls and a lowlight sensor with a very high dynamic range. Whats not to like?

A Nikon DF anecdote

To give you an idea how controversial this camera is I will share a little story. In a weak moment I wanted to switch to a black version. So I thought I would put mine up for sale with the same asking price as the black one I had spotted. Just to se see if such a switch was possible.
I placed the add on our equivalent to Craigslist.

Within 5 minutes I had received a reply. But it wasn’t an interested buyer. It was a troll. Some dude was trolling a classified just to go on about specs and other meaningless bla bla bla..

Im no beginner at classifieds. I must have had hundreds of things for sale. And Ive only once encounter something similar in the past.
That was when I was selling an Apple computer. So Im sure you understand how hot of a topic it is when it reaches the Mac vs PC level of insanity 🙂

I bought the camera used as usual, it is what I recommend. But if you want to splash some cash around you can do so here:
