I was all set to trade my D700 on the new Nikon Df Camera. As you might expect, the Df with its very strong retro film camera look appeals to ancients like me. It has a very strong resemblance to the old Nikon FM which was my first 35mm Nikon. And the Df boasts a 16 MP sensor whereas the D700 packs only 12. But before I got on the phone to my guy at B and H in New York to do the deed, I took a look back at some of the D 700 images from the past few years and I could not sell the camera. It has nowhere near the resolution of the D800, D600 or probably even the Df, but there is just something about the light it captures. The 700 stays. I have a friend in Australia who’s on old Pro and he says the D700 is the best Studio Camera Nikon has ever made. I defer to him on that. I just know I could not sell it. By the way, I could never bring myself to sell the FM either.
Thanks for the visit and have a great evening.
