why are you being malicious? tjobbe is a well recognized member of this small community and has always proven to be competent in his replies.

Why do I get the feeling he doesn't actually have the camera? After all, how hard is it to snap 10 pictures and post them here? Not sayin, just sayin.

did you just join just to ask this?

Thanks for your reports/feedback. I wish DPReview would simply buy a unit and post a review. I mean American car-makers do not like TopGear's review of their cars sometimes and have tried to stone-wall TopGear. What did they do? Bought cars off a regular dealership and ran their tests.

Can you please post any comparison you may have been able to do on AF speed with other cameras you own?

Thanks!

my package just arrived at the airport. I hope it gets cleared by customs in time and sent to my local post office so that I could pick it up by Saturday. it's a holiday tomorrow which delayed my copy for another 2-4 days instead of waiting for it tomorrow. what a bummer. on the otherhand, I'll say my thoughts about the AF speed in comparison with other cameras.

I NEVER believe reviews.

Reviews always reflect opinion of writer and each writer writes for MONEY (or other interests). I only believe what I tested, not other peoples meaning or writing. Noone can guess YOUR priorities.

Best of reviews are to see the thing from all side & in details.

I like such photos: someone gets a new camera, unpacks the camera, it is 5 pm, soon dark, it's rainy. He opens window and takes some pictures of backyard trash cans three floors deeper ...

I often saw such gigantic photos ...

I am 101% sure tjobbe has a NX300, but WHY he should run for hours through this world to get some pictures for the effect, that some users get an wow-orgas*m?

Wait some days und you will see millions of NX300 photos ... or BETTER: buy a NX300 and make pictures for yourself!

That's true, but reviews do give probably the best description of how a camera will perform before an individual has the chance to use it (or purchase it). Additionally reviews are usually invaluable in helping people decide what camera to purchase when they do not have access to said camera. Sure specs help but a review atleast gives you an idea of how the camera might perform.

Now I do agree that reviews are simply an opinion (although one could say quite a qualified opinion when it comes to dpr), and people should not take it as gospel or get irate just because a certain reviewer doesn't like some things with their camera.

wow! I saw it! A little bit unsharp and too high ISO.

You should get more practice with LightRoom

Its de rigour to have at least one model available in pink to maintain a system's credibility, all camera manufacturers, reviewers and end users agree on that at least. Although there will be very few of these sold, they have to have it in the range, i beleive theyre called  "halo effect" models.

I think the keyword there is "consistent findings". if the user reviews coincide with other users observation in general, then it is a qualified fact rather than an opinion. when a selected few says otherwise, then they are just there for attention.

Something notbasked yet: is the rear screen any better than the previous ones? What are the exact dimensions? Do you feel it can be used with a lcd viewfinder like the ones sold on ebay?
