My NPS order for the Df arrived today. Pior to accepting I decided to play with the display version they had which was the chrome one.
First impressions. Not for me. Too small and light for my big hands. I am 6'2 and weigh 215 lbs. So, this camera is too small for me to hold comfortably. The feel was very toyish and not what I had expected. That is not to say it is a bad camera. After all, having the same sensor as the D4 I would expect images just as good from the Df as from the D4. The metal dials feel hollow and plastic My overall impression was that this is felt like a toy camera. I then picked up an FM2 that was in the store and thought to myself, if only thy had ........
I spoke with a friend who picked up the black version. He told me his feelings were the same regarding the feel of the chrome version but the black one felt different and did not have a cheepish look and feel to it.
On the plus side, the view finder was very bright ad easy to focus with. The lack of the micro prism or split screen will probably be addressed in future releases but I would not be concerned about it now since the view finder was large and bright enough to feel confident of the focus.
Oh, I decided against it and forfeited it to the person on the waiting list.
