retro design? yes and this could very well be my first Nikon camera,
this reminds me of my old Pentax ME from the film days. I hope that
Nikon has tamed their menu system, a no distraction camera would be my
dream, just the basics of a film camera with a digital back and superb
image quality is what I think a lot of photographers want.
This is the kind of camera you use with fast primes, no giant zooms, save those for your D800E and put a 50 f/1.8 or a 135 f/2 on this and you will enjoy the photographic experience.
Same sensor as D4, same focus as D610, $2750.00 body only. $2995.00 w/50mm f/1.8.
