About a month ago I was having coffee with a friend and he was showing some pictures he had taken with his 35mm DX lens on his D800. Because of the sensor resolution on the D800, even cropped you’re still getting a fairly large image. In his set, he also had a few pictures that he had taken with the DX crop mode turned off, and they were mostly ok, apart from some severe vignetting. This piqued…
“ And that’s exactly how it turned out when I took the Nikon Df on a walk around my neighborhood. Shooting in Aperture-priority mode, I found the front command dial to be usable, but not as good as more typical dials on other high-end DSLRs. I like to shoot in Aperture-priority and make heavy use of exposure compensation. On the Df, the exposure compensation dial requires you to press a locking button to make a change. It can be done by feel without taking your eye off the viewfinder, but it’s still slower and less convenient to use than most exposure compensation controls on modern, advanced DSLRs.”
And that is my single biggest issue with the Nikon DF. The location and design of the exposure compensation dial is utterly stupid.
