Nikon Japan celebrated the first anniversary of launching the exceptional Nikon Df by designing a limited edition version of this model decorated with gold. Yet, in contrast to Brikk, which introduced the so-called Lux Nikon kit two weeks ago, which was composed of the Nikon Df and the Nikon Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens, both of which were almost completely covered in 24-karat gold, Nikon acted a little more moderately.
Namely, this DSLR camera will exhibit gold only where the standard version exhibits metal. This gold model, marking this important jubilee, will be offered for sale in two combinations - body only, or packaged with a gold-ringed Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G kit lens. This limited edition will bring 600 units in the form of the body, and 1000 combined with the said lens.
These gold bodies will be complemented with the following accessories: an AR-11G soft shutter release and a special strap. What is particularly interesting is that Nikon will also provide the future owners of this new model with an option to buy their new, gold Nikon Df with their name engraved into the control wheel - either in gold or silver.
The limited edition of the gold Nikon Df, whose weight is 765g, only 5g heavier than the standard Df body, will be available for sale next month; however, it will probably be limited only to the Japanese market. The Nikon Df body only will be sold at a price of 313,200 Yen (~$2690), while the version with the Nikon Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 kit lens will be priced at 334,800 Yen (~2877) - both plus tax.
