We have been hearing about the Nikon DF for a while now, with the camera supposedly being Nikon’s attempt at a mirrorless hybrid camera with a full-frame sensor, similar to what Sony has done with their recently announced A7 and A7R devices. While the camera has yet to be officially announced, it seems that photos and a listing on Amazon have made their way online. According to Amazon’s listing, which has since been taken down, the camera is expected to retail for a rather pricey figure of $2,746.95 which is the price for the camera’s body only, but if you were to get it with the 50mm f/1.8G special edition lens, the entire bundle will set you back $2,996.95. Amazon has also pegged the camera for a release on the 28th of November 2013.
The camera itself appears to be true to the rumors and leaked images and has been given a rather retro look and will be available in either black or silver. The camera will also feature a host of dials and buttons that allow for greater control over the photographs taken, something professional photographers might appreciate. The retro-styling of the camera along with its modern hardware would definitely be in line with Nikon’s “Digital Fusion” branding of the camera, which is apparently what “DF” stands for. In any case we expect the announcement to be made shortly, so check back with us later for all the official details.
