Nikon Df vs Nikon D610 vs Nikon D7100 Specifications Comparison

Published on November 10th, 2013

The Nikon Df is the latest full frame DSLR camera from Nikon featuring a 16.2 megapixel image sensor paired with EXPEED 3 image processor. “Df” actually stands for “Digital Fusion”. It features a retro design for its body, some would call it an “old-school” look and feel, and it is the thinnest and lightest DSLR in Nikon’s FX-format lineup so far. It also features a dedicated mechanical dials, just like in the old SLR cameras, for shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode and release mode. The Nikon Df has 39-point autofocus system with 9highly accurate cross-type sensors. It’s compatible with all current AF-S, AF-D and AF NIKKOR lenses, but there is also a Special Edition 50mm f/1.8G lens kit for this DSLR. Today let’s compare the specifications of the Nikon Df with the also newly released Nikon D610, a 24.3 megapixel full frame (FX-Format) Digital SLR, and with the Nikon D7100, a 24.1 megapixel DX-Format (cropped sensor) DSLR.

nikon df vs d610 vs d7100 specs comparison

The Nikon Df has a much higher price compared to the D610, but the Nikon D610 has many advantages over the Nikon Df. On the other hand, the Nikon D7100 is more feature rich, but it’s only a cropped sensor. So if you are planning to buy one, which one would you get?
