Reasons For

10 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D5300 has a megapixel of 24.2MP, however the Nikon Df is only a 16.2MP digital camera (8MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

A lot more total megapixels Edit
The Nikon D5300 has a total megapixels of 24.78MP, whereas the Nikon Df is only a 16.6MP digital camera (8.18MP less).
Vari-angle LCD display Edit
The Nikon D5300 has a vari-angle LCD display, however the Nikon Df does not have a vari-angle LCD display.
115,800 pixels higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Nikon D5300 is a 1,036,800 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Nikon Df is only a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (115,800 pixels lower).
Higher magnification Edit
Nikon D5300 is 0.82x lens magnification ratio, but the Nikon Df is only a 0.7x lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.12x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Bigger eye relief Edit
Nikon D5300 is 18mm Eye relief. That's 3mm bigger than the Nikon Df (15mm). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Lighter Edit
The Nikon D5300 is a 480g digital camera. That's 230g lighter than the Nikon Df (710g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
