Nikon Df Review : Sensor Performance and Test Results

By on

Nikon has officially announced the Nikon Df retro-styled full frame DSLR camera back in November, 2013. DxOMark has posted a review for the Nikon Df and tested the sensor performance of the camera.

The Nikon Df achieves a DxOMark sensor score of 89 points and is ranked 11th overall. The retro-styled camera Nikon Df sits in 1st place in their low light scores with an ISO 3,279 rating, while D4 is 2965.

Nikon Df is a DSLR camera that looks like the company’s iconic 35mm film cameras. See below for the comparison with other DSLR cameras.

Nikon Df Vs. Nikon D610 Vs. Canon EOS 6D


From DxOMark conclusion :

Nikon certainly threw a curve ball with the Df. One the one hand it has the first-rate sensor of the D4 in a much more compact and lighter weight body, but the choice of retro controls appears to be a step backwards.
They make sense with older manual focus lenses, with their manual aperture rings, providing they can be focused accurately but models like the F100 and F6 are proven over those earlier models when used with autofocus lenses, and that includes the current G-series (which lack aperture rings).
As it stands, Nikon may find the Df sidelined by both the D800, and the D600, which is a pity as the sensor is a superb performer in low light.
