Anyone else seen these? Just got an email form Calumet about them. Love the style, but not the price.
Nikon Df DSLR Camera 16.2MP, Silver, with AF-S 50mm f/1.8G NIKKOR Lens

Looks interesting I wonder if the other big players will follow suit. If so I'd jump on this concept if Canon came out with one

This looks, to me, like the camera a tech savvy grandpa would buy. Someone with all the old nikon glass that wants to use it on a modern DSLR efficiently. Looks great to me, although I'd take a d800, it's a sweet looking body.

I'm seriously considering grabbing one when they are released. Such an awesome package. Like Kermit said (I'm not that old though!) this really would go great with the awesome array of manual Nikkor and other glass.

It has no split screen or even interchangeable screen.
So you can mount your old glass but focusing will be guesswork.

I would love to finally get a full framed digital camera. I'd love being able to get a shallow depth of field without needing to move back half a mile.

I'm not sure that I'd drop $3k to play with old school photography though. I've learned how to take advantage of a lot of the automation that has been introduced over the past 20 years.

I'm very intrigued by the body but it's not something I will be purchasing. I shoot a D800 and D300 and just don't see this fitting into the mix any time.

It's a luxury item that isn't going to do anything functionally different from a high end DSLR, so I think it's funny that people are complaining about cost.

Interchangeable focus screens would have been a nice design feature, too bad they didn't go for that. I would have also liked to see an aperture ring on the body, at the base of the lens.

Yeah, this is seriously silly. The camera's sole selling point is its styling.
