The Nikon Df image quality - welcome to wonderland!

The Nikon Df image quality - welcome to wonderland!

Everything you might have read about the sensor in the Nikon D4 and Df is true. It is an amazing sensor and rightly deserves it's reputation. The above images was shot in a dark antiques shop at ISO 3200 and it's super clean with virtually no noise, either luminance or colour. Yes there is some but you have to look very closely to see it. Even then this is comparable to what many other cameras produce at around ISO 400. There is no problem whatsoever in printing this file very big or sending it to picture libraries. It is absolutely superb. This is something like a 2 stop advantage over anything else I've used. Plus other files get rid of the noise, but the detail disappears, not so with the Df.
