The Nikon Df features a 16.2MP sensor coupled with an Expeed 3 image processor. In terms of sensitivity range, the Df has an ISO range of 100-12800, which is expandable down to ISO 50 and up to ISO 204800.

The body of the camera is made from magnesium alloy, which is also dust and moisture resistant like the Nikon D800. The camera is also sprinkled with various dials that control key settings including sensitivity, shutter speed and exposure compensation. The camera also has 39 AF points, a 2016 pixel 3D metering system and 5.5 fps burst shooting.

There’s also a 3.2-inch 921k-dot LCD and a glass pentaprism viewfinder, which offers virtually 100 percent coverage and lets users remove the visible AF points when shooting in manual focus. Nikon has made the DF compatible with a number of accessories including vintage non-AI lenses and also current Nikkor models.

The camera will be marketed with a special edition 50mm f/1.8G lens, for around US$2750 in either black or silver (with black highlights) starting November 28.
