Nikon Df demand not as strong as the D800

Dream combo: Nikon Df with Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G lens

I received some unofficial information from different retailers and based on the number of pre-orders, it seems that the demand for the Df is not even close to the demand for the Nikon D800 when it was officially announced. The Df is currently not even in the top 20 best selling DSLRs on Amazon (D610 is on #14).

I am still questioning Nikon's strategy since they first cut their forecast three months ago because of poor mirrorless sales in US and Europe. At that time Nikon said that they will concentrate on new entry level DSLR cameras. Three months later Nikon introduces the high-end $3,000 Df camera, which was perceived as a great but overprices product. Few days after the Df announcement, Nikon cut their sales forecast for high-end cameras...

    Good. Maybe they’ll drop the price then. I WANTS one!

    I have to say I beg to differ – my FM2 had 6 controls and a d.o.f. preview button. That’s approximately 20 less than this thing.

    It appears you need to play the thing like a church organ.

    it’s an incredibly stupid camera for a Zillion Reasons…who did they “talk to” before they made this pariah ?
