The difference in price did not justify the loss of warranty. One trip to NSC during the warranty period & the price difference is gone!
    Why importing it from the US? It's not even cheap there anyway. There are cheeper options and some bros travel a lot, no need to pay shipping and customs.

Didn't like the mode and ISO dials. exposure compensation is OK, so is the shutter speed dial.
    You can change it to English, the Japanese model offers both languages (only).

    Probably those who bought this cam can start a DF user thread? So that you guys can share your real user experiences and images with those who might be interested in getting...

    Thanks.
    In the eyes of the beholder!

    Very nice lens and matches the DF very well. May I know how you handle manual focusing on the DF?

    Thanks! Handling is straightforward - set Df to manual, set shutter speed and adjust aperture or vice versa and you're good to go. Machiam old school.
    Focus until picture is sharp; no split screen type focusing. Amazing lens which picks up tiny details from far away.

    Nikon Df and Nikon D4 shutter sound comparison.
    Wait till 00:18 when it is switched to quiet mode. Nikon Df shutter sound is so quiet, it can be used in stealth mode !!!

    NIKON D90 (2008-2010), D700 (2010-2012), D800 (2012-2014), DF (Dec 2013-Sep 2017)

    Thanks. But how do you know when the image is in focus, just through trial and error?
