GPW: If I step up it will be to the Canon 7Dll and screw Nikon!!!
Should I ever 'upgrade' to FF it will be surely mirror less FF. Just looking at Nikon's endlessly iterated klump gear gives me nausea.
MikeF4Black: So it's as big as a full frame DSLR, it weighs as much as a full frame DSLR, but it's got a small sensor.
Yes, but it's got kick @ss speed.
Nick8: Congratulations! IMHO Samsung seems to be a company willing to do things right, like Sigma and Fujifilm.It looks like a great camera.
I agree on Sigma lenses, not on their cameras. The foevon sensor is the only usable part in their otherwise hopeless photographic contraptions.
Did You say SIGMA??
Prognathous: Everything is right on this camera, except for the mount.
To Serious Sam - The K3 is an awesome camera especially with my ltd. primes. No problems street shooting with that kit.
To Bluevellet- The Samsung is a beauty queen compared to my Pentax K3. Nobody goes near my camera.
Gazeomon: Seems to be a worthy successor of my (sold) Nikon D300s.
Hi DavidAgree. For 2 years I was waiting for Nikon to come up with a 'kick @ss' DX sport & action camera, they didn't. Instead they are trying to push high end DX shooters onto a different Photographic platform (FX). The Canon 7DII looks good to me. Let's see if the image quality stacks up. I'm sure it's way better than the old noisy D300s. Good luck
Seems to be a worthy successor of my (sold) Nikon D300s.
My first 'impressions' of this camera are quite positive as far as the specs go and body ergonomics looks. If image quality and the lenses are somewhat on par with my Pentax K3 & KIIs, I would consider Samsung as a second system. I like Samsungs fresh approach pushing useful technology. Unlike these stale and crippled iterations from Nikon & Co.
GPW: Nikon, Nicon, Nican, Nicano, Ncano, Ncanon, Canon!!!
I was with Nikon for years. My last Nikon was the D300s and I was expecting a proper DX semi pro upgrade with a better sensor and kick @ss performance. It did not happen and has not happened to this day and will never happen. I won't get bullied onto a different photographic platform with lame cameras. I sold my Nikon stuff moved on and are happy with my choice. Nothing trollish about that!
Showing up in public with this contraption one will get arrested for indecent irritation.
Instead of designing a proper monitor or providing an EVF, they come up with this grotesque looking monster loupe which defeats the purpose of a small portable camera. I wonder how the camera handles now with this giant blister attached to it.
Gazeomon: Just another tepid Nikon FF upgrade. I rather wait for Sony's next mirror less FF and lenses. I feel sorry for the D300 crowd who were hoping for something more exciting. I stopped hoping long ago and moved on.
You don't seem to understand why so many people need (want) to stay within the 'high end' DX system and I am not going to explain this to You here. It's not just price. Read the Nikon 'D300' etc. forum. Nikon wants to push high end DX users into the more profitable FX market. I don't like to be pushed by anyone.
mclaren777: Having a -3 EV focusing system is fantastic!
I wish all high-end cameras were this sensitive.
The Pentax K3 has this and the Fuji XT1 and the ------- yawn -----

Another 'gooey' x trans sensor with 12 mp. How exciting. I thought small sensor compacts are a dying breed. Next please.
What's next, chrome?
beavertown: 1200 bucks for this IQ?
Why don't they just put a smartphone sensor in it?
@ Badi. Enjoyable piece of gear with that image quality? FOR THAT PRICE? What are You inhaling?
Judging by DPR's sample photos, I find the image quality rather poor for such an expensive little camera. They are soft with not much detail. I'd rather spend just that little bit more for a better system (Fuji, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic).
Enjoyed this video. I like his work and the way he works his street photography. Don't care what camera he shoots with. Could have been done with almost any camera.
