The Df is a really good (I wrote great and changed it) camera, but I'm going back to my D700 after the rental period expires on Monday. The Df has a few major annoyances that made me take it from the great category.

I have had some great cameras:
Nikon F (1960s)
Canon F1 (1970s)
Nikon F3HP (1980s)
Leica R-4 (1990s)

None of my digital cameras stand out in my mind the way those cameras do, and the Df won't either.

Here's the link to my post in the Df forum:

I've missed her (D700), and am going to keep her.

The IQ of the Df is noticeably better, but all-in-all, I think I won't buy one soon.
