Nikon has launched its new retro-styled DSLR camera, one it teased for the last week and leaked just before its launch. The Nikon Df is a full-frame DSLR in a 1.5-pound, weather-sealed body with a 16.2-megapixel sensor and an EXPEED 3 processor, similar to that of the D4, with the device also boasting a sensitivity range that goes as high as ISO 204,800.

Offering a 39-point autofocus and 2,016-pixel RGB metering, the Nikon Df has a burst shooting rate of 5.5 frames per second, a shutter speed of between 1/4000 and 30 seconds, and a plethora of dials to adjust the camera's settings. A 100-percent field of view glass pentaprism viewfinder and a 3.2-inch, 921k-dot display on the rear can be used to line up shots, and when used with an optional wireless adapter, it can also be controlled by a smartphone or tablet.

Modern features such as HDR photography, Active D-Lighting, retouching menus and filters also appear in the retro camera, which is compatible with all current AF, DX AF-S, and AF-D NIKKOR lenses, as well as classic Ai and non-Ai NIKKOR lenses.

Arriving in late November in a choice of silver and black color schemes, the Nikon Df will cost $2,750 for the body alone, rising up to $3,000 when combined with a 50mm f/1.8 Special Edition lens.

Good LORD that's gorgeous - and you can dial in settings without going through a raft of menus. You know, like 100+ years of photography figured out was a good idea.
Just sayin'
