In November 2014, Nikon Japan announced a very special limited-edition black and gold model of its Nikon Df camera.
The new model was only available in Japan in limited quantities and was released by the end of the year.
The body-only model was released in a limited run of only 600 units.
The kit edition included a special gold version of the AF-S 50mm f/1.8G Nikkor in a 1,000-unit run.
To pair with the limited-edition camera, Nikon also introduced a number of gold accessories, which include a gold shutter release AR-11G and a AN-DC9G matching strap.
With the Nikon Df Gold, Nikon opted for a much more subtle approach than they have done in the past with the Nikon FM Gold and Nikon FA Gold, only giving it a few gold accents where they would have the most impact.
This subtlety also means Nikon’s rendition is much more attractive and we are informed it was an immediate sell-out in Japan.
Grays of Westminster are delighted to announce they have only one example of the kit for sale. Experience the power of pure photography with the Nikon Df.
Boasting a retro-styled body and the same 16.2-megapixel FX-format sensor as Nikon’s D4, this camera expresses a passion for photography in both form and function.
Richly detailed photographs with smooth tonal gradations are achievable in any light, thanks to a wide dynamic range and light sensitivity that is extendable up to an incredible ISO 204,800 (equivalent).
Together with the highly sensitive AF system, flawless metering, and fast performance, the Nikon Df may look like a classic Nikon 35mm film camera, but it’s packed with the latest technologies.
