Stanny1: At current Samsung NX1 pricing, you might as well go full-frame with the Sony Alpha A7.
Aps-c is not full frame and that is the end of it. If you can't see the difference you might is well stop calling yourself a photographer and start calling your self a pixelpeeper. Full frame is about more air in your pictures and a sense of being closer to the subjects. Extra sharpness and less noise is just a bonus.
Can it stream 4k live to my livingroom? if not it's not revolutional.
Mssimo: ephotozine already has a full review out. Im not sure what to think about this lens. It seems worse than "lenscap" lenses but they managed to price it much more than a standard canon f1.4 50mm. http://www.ephotozine.com/article/lensbaby-velvet-56mm-f-1-6-macro-review-27275
Bokeh also looks swirly Biotar/Helios like
There used to be soft portrait lenses in the eighties. still to be found on ebay.
PhotoKhan: Excellent step into taking the US away from the police state it has become.
(...but, Brittany, before you classify Texas option as "a Draconian slant" think about what 15ft actually are and how citizens photographing within that range may actually be interfering with the actual police work...farther than 15ft is perfectly suitable to still record inappropriate or illegal action that might be occurring.)
Isn't it already illegal to interfere with police work? Why a separate law for photographers?
Look ok, and should for the price. I wouldn't buy lenses like this for the A7 though. Boring zooms.
Twong: What makes it stand out among other great 100-ish macro lenses already on the market?
D1N0: More classic looking but the lens looks like a plastic compact.... Nikon just doesn't get it.
When you are going for a retro-look, make it look retro and not half retro and half nineties. Just look at the fuji's or the Pentax Q or Panasonic and Oly they don't have big lenses, but they do not cover the front element with plastic. I don't think you can judge my marketing skills. I happen to have a degree in marketing.
I'm sure it is but it still looks stupid.

Juck: They got IBIS tech,, the only thing of value in this old girl,, bailed,,, made a profit,, and still have enough shares for a seat on the board. Nice.
They already had that when they bought KonicaMinolta and it has been in their camera's ever since.
Sticks are so prehistoric. I want a selfie drone. See how fast that gets banned.
2eyesee: Can someone please explain to me why people find these retro designs appealing? Am I just not 'old school' enough (I got into photography about 15 years ago)?
Because the alternative is a rounded hunk of plastic
With aps-c moving to 24mp and even 28, 16 is just not going to cut it anymore. Eventually m43 will be a niche for street photographers who don't crop.
Most photographed real estate in the Netherlands made an appearance again.
D1N0: Where's Pentax you bunch of Hipsters!

Tapper123: Perhaps the metallic awards system should be done away with? It just leads to contention. Seems the numerical scores are enough, not to mention the conclusion text, for people looking for a summation.
Personally I thought this was a fair review, and I own an EM5 II and enjoy it. Pair it with some really good lenses and it's as good as almost anything except for perhaps some extreme situations where a 35mm sensor has an advantage. I see it as a great all-arounder, a camera that does everything reasonably well, with world class IS, solid build and weather resistance. If you can't get a good image from this camera paired with a good lens, then I suspect the problem is not the camera.
Anyway, gold, silver -- it doesn't matter. It's a great camera, capable of great images, and has a remarkable lens selection. Enjoy it.
Yeah let's make it crystalline
Diamond, Ruby and Sapphire..
So I can just buy a bag instead of a mirror less.
Looks like he is sucking out spinal fluid.
