Nikon Df review – The competition

Nikon users looking for a DSLR with a full-frame sensor will naturally consider the Nikon D610, particularly based on the fact that the camera costs around £1,000 less than the Df. Although the Df uses the same sensor as the Nikon D4, at around £4,225 the D4 will be way out of the reach of most enthusiast photographers and is a very different beast from the Df.

Many will be disappointed with the size of the Df, and perhaps those wanting a smaller DSLR-style camera with a full-frame sensor should also take a look at the Sony Alpha 7, which costs around £1,300 body only and can be used with Nikkor lenses via an adapter, although the lenses will lose the ability to autofocus.
