Nikon DF - Retro Style DSLR Camera | Officially Unveiled

You don't have to have a desk made of rich mahogany, a fancy pocket watch, and a handful of pocket-change to have this new Nikon DF in your kit. Although its release is no surprise - see our preview of the leaked images - Nikon has officially taken the wraps off of their new photographer's dream-come-true, which packs the D4's 16.2 MP FX format sensor and a new AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens. The DF is a clear take on what Nikon sees as a 35mm retro-styled, full-frame DSLR, complete with a glass pentaprism viewfinder that offers 100 percent field of view and a Expeed 3 processing engine. Up top, users will also have access to dials for shutter speed, aperture, and exposure compensation for even more throwback fun. What it doesn't have, however, is a movie mode, which makes this truly a photographer's camera only. The DF will be available in your choice of silver/black or black starting in late November, for a price of $2749 (body only) or $2999 with the 50mm F1.8 lens.
