I just received my Nikon Df (black with the 50 1.8 kit) this morning. Yay !
Everything else I have uses the EN-EL3 or 15 so I had the oh so long (not really) wait for the EN-EL14a to charge .. ramping up the anticipation !
Looking at my first handful of test shots in Photo Mechanic and being very pleased, I did spot that my first shot had a shutter count of 227 in the metadata. With my previous Nikon DSLRs that piece of metadata was either 0 or very low (maybe a couple of flips of the mirror into Live View and back). Did anyone see the same ?
I am hoping its just some factory testing or something rather than me getting a return ... if that is even possible when the critter was only release early in the week ! I really like the camera a lot.
All that aside, I am very pleased with the camera so far - the image quality is great. I look forward to rambling on about that later ... :-)
