You've just made my day here!
If this confusion were to happen, it would have been strongly encouraged by your usage of the newspaper analogy... wouldn't it have?
Only by someone who doesn't bother to read posts properly.
It was a counterpoint to your post, which you have chosen to sidestep rather than address.
More seriously, I also don't get it. Please tell us about the cameras you like and why you like them instead of commenting as nausea about cameras you don't like. I am sure you realize that your dislike is only personal to you and that those photographers interested in the potential of the Df as a solution to some photographic challenges of theirs will be more than capable of making up their own mind?
I am not going to buy one, so what?
So why are you commenting then? Are only Nikon fanbois allowed to have a view on the Df?
I am completely brand agnostic and open to use any new camera, if it fits a purpose/my hand nicely. And I really don't get why people are so defensive of brands, like you are with Nikon or others are with say Apple.
The Df appears to be a lame attempt to jump on the retro bandwagon, I was simply very underwhelmed when I came across it, but I wasn't as scathing as the chap who'd pre-odered one. Which was telling as he loved Nikon, had loads of money to burn and wanted something like his old film Nikkons. I have no problem with others preferring Camera A over my Camera B if it suits their needs better. But a cheap looking camera, with irrelevant, wobbly and fiddly to use retro style dials which was advertised as a trés cool lifestyle product with an inflated price to match is a bit rubbish because it misses all the targets it's aiming at.
