As I happen to be in Bangkok right now, Nikon Thailand’s kind enough to sends me an invitation for the Nikon Df announcement press conference taking place on Tuesday before noon, local time. Was told they’ll have pre-production models on show with the memory card slots sealed. So no, for the moment no full size image samples. But you can tell already a lot about a camera from handling it. And I’m promised an early demo model for testing, they should arrive in an estimated three weeks. So I guess the Nikon DF will hit the shelves right in time for the holiday shopping season.
I have high hopes in this camera. Usually don’t post stories that are water under the bridge within hours. But this Nikon warrants some special attention. More tomorrow right here on THEME. Will give live blogging a try. Just stay tuned, and later on in the day I’ll have THEME’s ritual The Nikon Df File up with all the early previews and hands-on reports.
Wish me fun!
