Nikon Df review: New low light champion?

Sensor Review
Introduction | Nikon Df sensor performance: Best Low-Light ISO score | Nikon Df Versus Nikon D4: Competitive Edge? | Nikon Df Versus Nikon D800: Complementary performance | Nikon Df Versus Canon EOS 5D Mark III | Conclusion

When compared against the firm’s $6,000 press-oriented D4, color depth, dynamic range and low light scores of the new Df are very closely matched indeed, suggesting the sensor is the same unit in both models.

The Nikon D4 is no longer the only choice from the firm for available light. Nikon users have been crying out for a replacement for the D700 but the retro controls of the Df are likely at odds with the majority of those potential customers.
