Nikon Df Impressions continued

This is really just a gallery of Nikon Df example shots from a day’s (more like an hours!) shooting at Alexandra palace.  I took along my Samyang 14mm, Voigtlander 20mm, Zeiss 25mm, Nikon 28mm AI-S F2 (yes, I like wide angles), Nikon 50mm F1.8G special edition and Nikon 105mm AI-S F2.5.

The ergonomics are great for primes 😀 and the viewfinder is very decent for manual focus, particularly using the 28mm F2 and the 105mm F2.5. The others I was shooting stopped down so it wasn’t so hard. I continue to believe the control methodology is well thought out and even the ISO dial is second nature now.

Suffice it to say it’s a great little camera and it’s really growing on me. No, I wouldn’t use it for sports or with a 70-200mm mounted, but it was never designed for that. I cannot credit the negativity floating around the internet about it – I cannot see much if any of it as justified.

In any event, the pictures…
