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!
Instantly share your great photos
Attach the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and instantly share your beautiful photos. Connect to the Nikon Df with a compatible smartphone or tablet, then use it to browse your camera's memory card, import your favorite photos and even see what your camera sees and fire the shutter!

Top customer reviews
I found the body to be a little challenging on my hands (I have large hands) being that the camera is so small compared to the D300 with the vertical grip. It's clearly not like the D300 which has great ergonomics for my hands. However - I can't stop picking up the camera and shooting with it. I hadn't EVER had a feeling like this before. Because of its small size and light weight I want to bring it around with me everywhere. It's true, this camera will slow you down. It'll make you think about your shot a bit more and that is a really good thing. I was teaching someone about how to use their new Nikon 5300 and he was shooting manual and moving like a bandit. So fast and furious. He was missing what he was doing wrong. This camera forces you a lot more to look at what settings you've got and go from there.
It is a beautiful camera and I LIKE the dials. I can turn a lot of them with the lock with one hand. You just need to spend time with it to figure how best to work with it. Seriously, the dials are awesome and they really are an option if you don't care to use them.
Here's what I wish it had: a low light emitter. My camera focuses great in low light! I'm not sure what other people are complaining about, but my camera is fantastic in low light. The option to have the low light emitter would be nice. I wish it had a better grip. I wish it had a second card slot. That's it.
I also got the special 50mm 1.8. My lens is AWESOME. I have a great copy. Super sharp wide open. If you have this lens and it is soft, return it, but I'm glad I have it. In fact I'm planning of getting more primes!
The battery is better than the D300. Really nice!
Cost - yes compared to other models, its expensive and you're not getting all the features, but here's the deal - you are getting the D4 sensor! That alone is amazing! You really have no idea how awesome this camera is until you have it for a while and shot with it. The price is right. Yes, I wish it had some things included in it, but I'm not returning this baby because of it. I love it.
The TOOL produces AMAZING images and encourages me to use it! Low light capabilities will change the way you shoot.
Hope this was helpful. It's my first post.
First what Nikon did right:
The sensor is simply incredible. Ranging from ISO 100-12800, 12800 is actually completely usable with almost no noise. Dimly lit subway tunnels? No problem. If you need to shoot indoors or dimly lit environments without a flash this will handle it.
The styling is great. I find the ergonomic similar to the F3 (though chunkier) and compared to the other Nikon pro and semi-pro bodies it is incredibly light. The fact that you can use an old school shutter release is a nice touch (though it would be nice if you could also use a modern remote).
The viewfinder is great and while it does not have the old school split prism focusing screen, manual focusing is a breeze.
The dial controls have been a bit of controversial topic. Personally I find them reasonably easy to use, and they can easily be bypassed for those who cannot be bothered.
The ability to use Non-AI lens is huge if you like manual focus primes, especially if you like to shoot film too. Non-AI lens are dirt cheap and great lenses.
Unfortunately there are a few things that Nikon really could have handled better.
First for a camera in this price range, there is no excuse for not building these with the 1/8000, 200,000 release rated shutter. The 1/4000 shutter works fine and will probably not be hugely limiting factor, but since Nikon is charging about the same for a Df Kit, as a D810 body, this seems like a strange place to cheap out on.
The front command dial is not as difficult to use as some have claimed, but it is not as easy to use as the standard command dial design Nikon uses for everything else, and I don't think it really would have harmed the retro design any more than the current stylized front dial (the rear dial is the Nikon standard.
The complaints about the Single SD card/Battery Compartment combination is not well thought out, and totally unnecessary. Personally I think this is a case of Nikon slavishly following Fuji with their X100 set up. Having to pull the SD card from the battery compartment causes unnecessary wear on a plastic part. Even if they couldn't acommodate a two card slot, they could have at least placed it in a dedicated slot on the side.
As good as the sensor is in low light, the auto focus system is terrible in low light. I am constantly switching to manual focus in low light because the autofocus won't stop hunting. I have a D5300 with the same system that has a much easier time. But the D5300 has an assist lamp, where one was not included on the DF.
The kit lens is pretty and works OK, but it is definitely not worth the premium you pay for a DF kit. Honestly the old plastic AF 50mm 1.8 looks more retro, is lighter, takes great pictures and can be had for about a $100.00 new. Unless you get a deal, just get the body.
I guess the big question is it worth paying the same price for this as opposed to a D800 (or D810 now). Honestly other than the ability to use non-AI lenses and extreme low light capabilities, the D800 is a lot more capable camera. This is a great camera, but I would not have paid full price for one (I got an open box kit at a pretty steep discount). On the other hand I love using this camera, and I seriously doubt I will be selling it later down the line. So it definitely has a subjective "it" factor that cannot be denied.
