NIkon announces a new full-frame DSLR that packs the sensor from a D4 and the brain of a D800 into a small, light, retro-tastic body.

Nikon DF announced: small, light, full-frame and oh so pretty

There’s been some speculation lately that Nikon was about to announce a compact system camera with a full-frame sensor, just like Sony’s A7.

Nikon took those rumours outside and drowned them in a bucket of truth-juice this morning, showing off instead a proper DSLR that packs the same 16.2MP full-frame sensor as Nikon’s professional D4 into a body that’s smaller, lighter and better-looking than the D800, and which works with lenses that are over half a century old. We managed to get a brief fondle of the new Nikon DF, and crikey, it is a lovely thing.
