MikeF4Black: I'd always prefer my Tumi messenger bag, black ballistic nylon, to which an appropriate Billingham insert has been added. It holds a D800E with one prime easily, a lot of other stuff, an iPad and some documents.

And it doesn't look like a murse, it looks the business. And fortunately it doesn't "sport" a red dot.

Ha!

You can use a black marker on the red dot.... the dot is very small...

bigdaddave: I could never be seen with a bag that is worth more than the gear inside it.

What an utter waste of money

Why live your life so grumpy? You make me sad...:(

LarryLatchkey: very interesting offering from fuji! a shame the cheapest lense is a 27/2.8 for €450, and the 53/1.4 is almost €700... sure, they are nice lenses, but they should introduce a couple of cheaper lenses for beginners, preferably pancake designs.

I agree with you Larry.

UnitedNations: My Nikon DF has better sensor than this camera...and better low light ISO ability...... Leica sure is expensive.

I agree with mark too.

If you don't have money to buy Fuji lenses & think they are too expensive, then you should look elsewhere. Fuji is not for poor people.
Only people who are unfamiliar with Fuji lenses ask for a lower sale price.
In case of the 27/2.8, this might surprise many people, but it is one of the most sharpest lens in the Fuji lens lineup & the the asking price is fair.
In case of 18mm, this lens is probably the worst in the lineup & should be avoided.

As long as they leave out the red dot in the front, it is always an improvement.

For me only the pictures matter. So DF is a fine camera. D4 sensor at half the price.

rhurani: Samsung is a great innovator, may outperform established competitors, may produce best-in-town devices, yet I am afraid of buyin their products. I've done twice buying their top gadgets and was disappointed with things that never appear on reviews, with hidden underwater stones that you'd never expected. Best-in-class tablet I bought recently fries mSD cards regularly. cannot complain because it seems working, but once in a while i lose the SD?! I am avoiding using the tablet also because it is difficult to handle without accidentally "touching" it> Arent they supposed to try the device before putting into mass production?. The story with my "dream" camcorder back in 2002 is still haunting me. No Samsung for me regardless of their leadership in any area

It wouldn't be a surprise of Apple invades the fast food business or pornography before Sony or Samsung. We all know how greedy & dirty Apple is.

refillable: I am honestly perplexed now... I don't think this camera is much different than my a6000, yet it is more expensive. There is no clear advantage from my camera to this, as far as I know. Except 4K recording which is not that important to be honest. Can someone explain to me what justification the '87%' rating is opposed to a6000's 80%? Thanks

Maybe if you can get over your subconscious bias & justification for 'your' brand... AND re-read the whole review about 5 times more then maybe you will be able to understand what is so obvious for many others to grasp so easily.

Same thing happened to my Sonys which is an established leading brand with leading reputation, BUT what I found out is completely different. On reviews & reputation they appear to be good, but once you use it you find out there are "hidden underwater stones that you'd never expected". Not sure if Sony is testing their products properly before putting them into mass production. Would never buy anything from Sony again.

nandbytes: dxo does a review on NX1, its IQ doesn't seem much better than any other APS-C like A6000, D7200 etc - http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Samsung-NX1-lens-review-Hail-the-new-king-of-APS-C-hybrids/Samsung-NX1-vs-Sony-a6000-vs-Sony-A7R

The only APS-C that impressed me was the D7200 with its impressive dynamic range - http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Nikon-D7200-versus-Samsung-NX1-versus-Sony-A6000___1020_976_942
The SNR is roughly the same between A6000, D7200 and NX1 but D7200 is way ahead in dynamic range (seems to be only second to the D810).

Judging image quality("IQ") based on things like dxomark etc. just seems silly to me. I consider the 'aesthetics' of an image more important. Bought a high end Sony full frame camera that cost 3 times more than my first generation Fuji X100, but had to sell it later because the Fuji X100 produced aesthetically more pleasing renderings. Technical charts have little meaning in Photography. What counts more is how you use the camera & whether you have the eye for aesthetics. Henri CArtier Bresson had worse camera than all of you guys today.... & he never cared about any chart or dxomark scores. Open your eyes...
NX1 is PLENTY good enough.

There is a great difference between 14mm & 16mm. I thought you knew that already....

The Luminous Landscape says about the NX1:
"I applaud the fact that the NX1 is a big middle finger to the camera industry establishment that says – get off your butts and stop doling out new technology in dribs and drabs, because we’ve just shown you what’s possible, and at a reasonable end-user price."

66GTO: Just a turd in Samsung clothing. Nothing amazing here. Samsung and quality are not a match. This review has taken the credibility of DP Reviews down more than just a few notches. Look at the review images then ask how they add up to 87%

What's the name of your drugs? Seems mighty powerful...

In reply to:

oselimg: So, Dpreview doesn't rate cameras on the basis of image quality since NX1 is awarded gold. Or Do you have "different" criteria for each brand? Perhaps Samsung now is a huge company to ignore.

dpreview rates every cameras based on 12 criterias including "image quality". Go look at the review chart above with its 12 criterias.

...Sad that irrational haters must be taught what is already so obvious for others....

I remember reading countless irrational hate comments written by so many ignorant & jealous people when the NX1 was first introduced here.
I am glad the dpreview brought justice for Samsung with this final review.
Haters can continue to hate... but Samsung will never stop innovating.

On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (364 comments in total)
In reply to:

UnitedNations: I think people have to understand that 'Japanese quality' is no longer the same today.

Rishi should know that Japanese companies have been faced with more challenges in recent years than it did before, & have had to make more cost cutting moves than in the past. The amount of absolute quality was not easily shared & accessible back in the days because there was comparatively less competition for the Japanese companies than now. Now it is different. "Absolute quality" in the Industrial Design Industry have overall risen due to more competition & development in technologies, but 'Japanese quality' has gradually shown decline due to fierce competition, changes in market strategy, & cost cutting.
In the old days people expected high quality from the Japanese companies & got it. Today people still expect high quality from the Japanese companies as before, but realise they are not really getting high quality as before..

Maybe Japanese quality WAS generally the best some years ago, but not now. I see the quality of their products gradually deteriorating because of cost saving moves. 'Japanese quality' is not the same as what it used to be many years ago. fanboys may have a hard time admitting this. Even the Sony had a light leak problem recently...
