Very nice! Did you process it from raw? How is focusing with the 60mm on the 300?

yes, those are raws from LR4.4 with UMASK at 80% and de-noise at 3 (so virtually none).

I took those today to test the AF-C and tracking mainly and to compare the keepers with MF.

Tracking and AF-C worked and gave me some keepers but the issue with the macro is such that you cannot use the min distance as the fokus is lost when the object gets closer so that you do need to restart catching it again. I assume that for larger and more distant objects  it work out better as the NX20 before

I got my NX300 recently. I also have the 60mm macro. I will add some of my pictures if you do not mind.

I found the new focus peaking feature of the NX300 quite impressive. Seems to be very useful for macro shots, too. Will see.

very nice; unfortunately in the pic of the fly your focus was on the back instead of the "eyes". But abyway it's a very nice shot. It seems to me that the output from nx300 is a bit sharper than that from nx200: am I right?

as mentioned, I am trying out how to best use the trackingAF and my guess (and reason for that "misfocsing") is that the Contrast AF fixes the object while the PDAF tries to follow it (which it did here, as the wind heavily moved the leaf so that I was lucky to get around 2,3 out of 10 shots with enought sharpness.

My take is that the element of highest contrast was locked and that is the wing of that fly

regards NX200 versus NX300... yes, but my take is that already the NX20 was sharper then the NX200

Never tried macro until getting NX1000 and the 60mm Macro lens, and it's really quite difficult getting that focus just right...

Nice work on the pics

there is one "easy way": MF, minimal distance and focus by "moving your body back and forth"

Nice work on the pics

thx !

handling the 60mm with the NX300 and the flip screen is really good, nearly as comfortable as the NX20 so here some more
