Nikon DF Mainline Makeover Preview

The rumour sites have been in meltdown over the imminent release of Nikon’s new retro styled DSLR – the DF – due out before Christmas.
Here is a hint of how one might look after the obligatory Mainline makeover… Of course we don’t have our hands on a DF yet so we used Rene’s F3, the great great great grandfather of the new DF.

Thumbs Up Beep soft release and the superb Voigtlander 28 f2.8 F-mount manual focus lens with focus confirmation and f-stop control.

Compare and check out the looks – that is a strong bloodline. When we get hold of a DF we’ll post a side by side comparison to see how close we were.

Now there is a street camera par excellence – of course the accessories are also available in black for a more discrete look.
