Nikon Df + 28-200mm lens - The DSLR still rules
'Whatever issue people have with DSLR's, I don't share them other than to say that I don't like them too big and too heavy. But then the Df is neither. It's one of my favourite cameras ever and it achieves my highest accolade. I just don't notice it when I'm out working with it and it gets the job done with no errors, no delays and the minimum of fuss.'

'Mirrorlesson fashions have dictated that 'lookaleicas' are on the way out and film SLS type designs are very much the order of the day. The Fuji X-T1, Olympus OM-D E-M10 and Sony A7s are examples of this. I've just had three days shooting with each and here's some pictures plus some comments on my experiences with each.'

NIKON and the Df - loosing the plot or still one of the great camera makers?

NIKON and the Df - loosing the plot or still one of the great camera makers?
"As well as it's looks the Nikon Df has an old-school retro chic attitude to producing images. Everything is designed to produce great images in an efficient way, emphasising the important parameters in creating quality images over gimmicks and using tried and trusted mechanical engineering to create a camera that's comfortable, rugged, yet easy to use."

SONY A7r - NO-AA FILTER - RESOLUTION TO DIE FOR
"In all my recent comparison tests of camera, one thing has been reinforced and reaffirmed as far as I'm concerned. That whatever the merits of other cameras and whatever the A7r lacks, in terms of resolution and the rendering of fine detail it is an astonishing camera."

NIKON Df - 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-G - EBAY SAGA

NIKON Df - 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-G - EBAY SAGA
"So I was looking around on ebay for a Nikon 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-G to use on my Df. This is a lens that Nikon stopped making a while ago, but I've used a couple before on Nikon DSLR's and they are incredibly useful. Decent optical quality and in terms of size and weight a lot less bulky than many of the Nikon zooms with AF motors built in. Since one of the features of the Df is it will handle virtually every Nikon lens ever made, I thought it would be a good match."
