 I was really looking forward to this camera and even sold some gear to finance this thing but I must admit that I was disappointed when I saw the photos. However, as images can be deceiving, I will wait until I hold the product in my hands. It's funny but the more I read about it, the more I appreciate my D750 (and my PEN-F).
BTW: could the ring be the adapter for F-lenses that  is being talked about?

Honestly, until I'm able to handle/shoot one of these, I'm going to reserve judgement on them.

At 0:21: this is not an F2. The F2 has not the frame counter in the lever knob.

And that's my honest statement too. Judging the Df from the specs or looks could have misled me. This is all the more true with a more "innovative" camera.

Yes, I agree with this as a non-specific statement about anything. . . but sometimes, "You just know. . . " and that is how i instinctively "knew" about the Df being the perfect camera for me!  I was right.  For me. There are, doubtless, people who already "know", they just know this about this yet unseen Nikon.

Agreed. Nikon MUST come up with something pretty special with the mirrorless to divert me from my D810 and Df, which satisfy almost all of my needs (I do run a roll of film occasionally through my RM3di).

The pretty special things are (my best guess):
1) Df is discontinued and there is no Df "line"
2) Mirrorless will come with really good focussing aids
I'm still fond of MF lenses, but know that age will take its toll, so...

I tend to agree with you, Airy. My guess is many of us are about to become Nikon "dinosaurs". Time (and camera developement) move on...

My first thought as well, if it isn't it just looks weird.

But form follows function and a good looking useless camera is still a useless camera and I prefer to have a camera which works regardless of how it looks :)

If Airy is correct, the price of used Dfs will increase.  Better start looking for a spare!

I am looking forward to the new mirrorless as possibly replacing my Df. In body stabilization, flippy display, magnifying viewfinder to help me manually focus. Plus a compact body and video. As much as I think the Df is great, this seems like an improvement.
