There has been a lot of chatter about a new Nikon retro FX camera. It’s rumored to be called the Nikon DF or “Dynamic Fusion” camera. According to Nikon Rumors, the announcement will take place on November 5th 2013. Nikon Pure Photography videos leading up to this announcement have been making the rounds, and they are short and sweet. The potential specs of the camera are nice as well, especially the possibility of the D4’s sensor being used. One of the most interesting things is the ability to meter with non-AI lenses. It enables the use of a large amount of classic lenses from Nikon’s past.
I, personally, am really excited about this. Beyond the camera body, it’s everything I wanted in my next camera. I do work with a Nikon FM SLR, so if what has been said is true, I am going to be a very happy photographer.
