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.
