Nikon Announces Black & Gold Limited Edition Df

By Anthony Thurston on November 14th 2014

Nikon loves their Df, and today they announced a new limited edition model that will be sure to catch some attention from you Nikonians. But there is a catch!


But before we get to what that catch is, let’s talk a little more about this extremely sexy piece of kit. As you can see, it is basically the all black Df, but with gold trim. It also comes with a special gold trimmed strap and a special 50mm F/1.8G with a gold ring. I have to admit, I really like the look of this Limited Edition Df. Now for that catch…

Unfortunately, the new limited edition Df will only be available in Japan. To make matters worse, only 600 units of the body only, and 1600 units of the kit will be produced. So availability will be extremely limited, hence the limited edition tag. That said, I’m sure if you wanted it bad enough, you would be able to get your hands on it from Japan somehow.



As I mentioned above, these will be made in an extremely small run. The body only will run you roughly $2,700 US (not including shipping or whatever magic you use to get it here to the US), and the kit will run you around $2900 US.

If you want to learn more, you can head on over to Nikon Japan’s website to get the full skinny.

    Fantastic camera. Useless? Yeah, the D4 sensor in a light, small body sure is useless. I never, ever use this thing all day, never noticing the weight, for hundreds of shots, at 6400 ISO, clear as a bell, when need be. May as well just stick it under the tire to keep the car from rolling down the hill. Not much else it’s good for.

      That’s a mark in its favour in my opinion. Video will continue to be an intirely unused “feature” in every camera I own.

      It does not shot video.

      This camera looks very interesting but I would buy it only if it came with the 51 autofocus system and not the 39 points of the D610.

    Sign me up. I want one. I can’t justify the expense, but it’s a nice retro looking camera. I love the old F2 vibe this has. I bet this camera would be a conversation starter for some people (“Is that a film camera?”)

    I looks cool, but it’s still a Df camera which I think is useless.
