I received approval for writing Mastering the Nikon Df from my publisher and JRP. I am quite excited about the Nikon Df. It is a miniature Nikon D4, with a similar relationship to the D4 that the D700 had with the D3.

I wrote a 10 page review of the camera, which you will soon see posted here on Nikonians and maybe in the upcoming Nikonians eZine. I preordered my camera from our advertiser, Brad Berger, of www.Berger-Bros.com (1-800-542-8811). Brad tells me he will be receiving a shipment toward the end of the month and is now taking preorders.

While this camera won't replace my Nikon D800 for commercial work, it will become my daily carry camera, with its cool, retro AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens. I am looking forward to the amazing image quality and excellent high ISO response of this mini D4. Imagine having up to ISO 204,800 for emergencies. Talk about a camera for astronomy!

I am wiggling like a 3-year old on a sugar high over this camera. It has the smallest FX body yet, alleviates the need to dip into menus, having all the controls you need on the outside of the camera, and takes me back to the days of my youth. With it I will time travel to the time I was young and skinny, raising kids, struggling to afford film and processing—yet making many wonderful Kodachrome, Velvia, and Provia slides. You know, the good old days!

This camera will be the first in a new Df genre, I am sure. Remember, the first Nikon SLR back in 1959 was the Nikon F. Now we have the Nikon Df. Eventually, it will result in a mirrorless model. Retro is the new modern look! What goes around comes back around. The past is back and it is shiny, with knobs. Hurry, Brad Berger, send me my camera!

Here are a few more pictures for you to view (try not to wiggle like me):
