I was thinking of buying a Df but your review in issue 54 suggested the D750 was superior, despite the lab test scores. Why is this?
Richard Wheatley, via email Jason says... The D750’s lab test scores were superior to those of the Df for resolution, and it’s able to resolve greater levels of fine detail. The scores were fairly similar for dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio, but lab results don’t tell the whole story. That’s why we base our judgments just as much on real-world shooting. In practice, the D750’s signal-to-noise ratios aren’t as impressive as from the Df, but the later-generation image sensor and processor do a better job in delivering clean images at high ISOs. Overall, the D750’s image quality is better than that of the Df.
The Df is still an excellent camera, but newer Nikon D-SLRs with later sensors and processors outperform it
