Df is the smallest and lightest FX-format DSLR camera Nikon has ever produced
Nikon has officially announced its latest digital camera called the Df. Nikon says that this new camera is a fusion of "flagship D4 image quality" in a small and light FX-format body. The camera has dial operation allowing for direct and intuitive operation and provides precision mechanics for high-quality photography.
Mechanical knobs also allow users to adjust settings at any time, even with the camera turned off. The Df uses a FX-format single sensor with a resolution of 16.2 megapixels combined with an EXPEED 3 image-processing engine from the D4 flagship digital camera. The Df supports ISO range from 100-12,800 and can be reduced to the equivalent of ISO 50 up to ISO 204,800. The camera has an autofocus system using 39 focus points in a scene recognition system using a built-in 2016-pixel RGB sensor.
The Df is relatively small, measuring 143.5 x 110 x 66.5 mm and weighs 710 g. Nikon says that makes it the smallest and lightest FX-format D-SLR camera in company history.
The camera can shoot continuous high-speed images at 5.5 FPS and stores them to SDXC memory cards. The Df can be purchased with an AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G special edition kit lens designed to offer superior performance with a compact and lightweight design.
Pricing and availability for the Df is unannounced this time.

Hmmm, the type of person who doesn't like dials is probably just going to leave an SLR on auto all the time.
That may be why the dials seem like useless and old fashioned.

Ima thinking that is the point moto was trying to make ;)
The kind of person that leaves his camera on auto all the time would no doubt look for something with a little more automation & toys like the D800. They most certainly wouldn't be spending pro-level bucks on one of these babies.
