Samuel Dilworth: Why does every new Samsung sport yet another design? The company is downright schizophrenic!
Sarcasm? I swear we Just had a post complaining how all the cameras look the same.
Peiasdf: Samsung treats its cameras like its cellphone. The same crap wrapped in new exterior with more gimmicks. How about slowing down the release schedule and actually provide useful improvements. Also, provide firmware updates.
Err I swear the NEX series was the same camera over and over.
uses tizen, which can potentially use android apps... interesting.
I thought the comparison widget was broken or something. Then I realised how sharp this lens is...
AngryCorgi: Same sensor, same failure awaiting. Samsung doesn't get it. Stop playing with stupid gimmicks, like ridiculous LCD screens and put a decent sensor in your camera for once. And fix he ergonomics while you're at it, the nx200 is terrible and this looks to be equally uncomfortable.
explain 'decent sensor'.
The output of RAWs is on the same level as any other crop sensored camera (apart from the fujis of course).
D1N0: Samsung has kind of sucked so far when it came to their sensors. When they solve that, they will become a real threat to Sony and Olympus and Panasonic
Their raw output is just as good, if not better.
Much better than the EOS-M farce.
Where they lack is their marketing; however I get the feeling they're not really pushing the product in western markets yet.
Jefftan: Really, who is going to buy this instead of NEX or MFT?Anyone?
The NEX's have awful tonal reproduction. The MFT simply have worse image quality (although great/mature tonal reproduction, which makes it more of an option than the NEX).
Quite a lot of correction is needed for the NEX system, and I don't see what is that good about the system.
Also the lens system of the NX system is actually quite mature now. Quite moreso than a certain pentax i'd daresay.
fakuryu: I wonder how Samsung's sensor performs against Sony's with this one.
the NX200 sensor's were essentially equal to the sony's in relative terms, if you're talking about RAWs.
Hopefully Samsung's fixed up the JPEGs though.
It is a different sensor mind you; the NX200 had a CDAF sensor.
They sell well because of the marketing power canon has.
As for the product....
inferior to the NEX, NX, X system. Yet it sells much more.
Its a solid camera. Ergonomics are nice with the extremely deep grip, live view is very useable too; AF speeds are on par with the K-01.
If anything this camera is a K-01, with DSLR bits on top.
ChuckTa: I found some pic sample from 45/1.8 and it looks really good. http://www.slrclub.com/bbs/vx2.php?id=newproduct_samsung&page=1&divpage=1&ss=on&select_arrange=headnum&desc=asc&no=3549
The colours look like the JPEG engine in portrait mode lol.
nawknai: Best lens lineup by far.
I don't get it. Are there cameras just that bad that they don't even get a mention in the EVIL/CSC race? All you hear about are m4/3, NEX, and Fuji, even here. I just bought a Fuji X-Pro 1, but if Samsung had better reviews (and I could find them at a local shop), I would have certainly taken a look at Samsung.
They just don't market this segment at all. I think they're trying to be a sleeper hit.
Vitruvius: No camera sensor shift IS, no lens optical IS... means that it would either need to be a MUCH better system than cameras like the EM-5 in some other way or much cheaper.
An EM-5 doesn't really compare IQ wise though. LOL.
peevee1: 45/1.8 for 25% less then the Oly 45/1.8 covering significantly smaller circle. As usual, Oly lenses are overpriced, even the cheaper ones. ;)
Apples and oranges really.
58 and 43mm filters hard to find...? wha?
You can buy screw on hoods, but Samsung's lenses usually have very good flare control anyway so its unecessary.
Love all the spec-sheet warriors here, because totally, having a max sensitivity of ISO1600 means that the camera is worse than a D800.
Okay sure, it is very expensive and maybe a bit overpriced. But seriously? Comparing it to a D800?
This is probably one of the first leica's I can take seriously. It's quite unusual that they leave so much customisation open; its almost as much as a DSLR. I think what will be most interesting is the fact that the leica can mount DSLR lenses now since the live view will let them be used. -puts an EF 50mm f1.8 II on a M-
they mention its rectilinear; this lens has zero distortion. If samyang manages to pull this off, this will be one of the best primes by a long shot. I cant wait to try this out on a x pro1 lol!
Valentinian: This is high-level compromise: on one hand Canon must keep all the existing lenses from becoming obsolete; on the other hand it is already known that mirorless is better than mirror reflex. Canon solution is much better than Pentax. The "hybrid" solution, combining Phase and Contrast AF is the future.However, when the Hybrid AF will be implemented also in the mirrorless cameras this "compromise" solution will have a though competion
60mm f2.8, 85mm f1.4 from samsungfuji 35 1.4.... list goes on.
IcyVeins: The new Sony camera got over 500 comments on its preview. I doubt this overpriced hulking non-upgrade of a sucker's camera gets even half as many. Canon hasn't upgraded its sensor in three years, that's an absolute joke.
Joke's on you because this is a different sensor to the 18mpx sensor before. 18mpx is a standardised canon frame resolution now. Theres none of that colour shift on the 550D at 6400~12800 in the samples.
If you think Sony is doing that well, maybe to some vehement fans but in general they're not selling great. Canon, Nikon with every product outsell sony, for a good reason. On paper Sony are better but in use I find nikon and canon in all aspects, better.
