I don't have a NX anymore but I had a NX10 at its launch. Based on my experience with the NX system, the Fuji system, and the Sony NEX system I can fairly say this NX platform is the best APSC based mirrorless system around and by far.
They are the only one to provide good ergonomics on a small and light package with very great performance/value ratio primes/pancake lenses.
Sensor wise they are quite impressive: sharper than Sony sensor at base Iso and just a stop behind at higher isos.Considering Samsung is new in the sensor business this is damn impressive they could came so close from the said "Sony worldwide BEST APSC sensor" with apparently so little efforts.
Well done Leica ! Very very nice !just kidding
ultimitsu: So it is a 19-45 F3.5 to F6.4, right?
if we talk about 135 equivalent why do you say 28-70 F5.25-9.6?
28-70mm F3.5 to F6.4 is correct.The brightness of the lens is a more important detail than the "24x36" equivalent Depth of Field.
The wealthy ! Ahhhhhh the wealthy !!!The red dot ! Ahhhhhh the red dot !!!
I am not wealthy and I shoot with Leica gear. Moreover my M3 has no red dot.Sorry guys but you were all WRONG !
edbollom: Is this going to be a Lumix GX1 but with the red dot? It really is unbelievable that the v-lux range have been conning people out of there money for so long when they are exactly thesame as Panasonic's LX series but far more expensive! The lenses are great but the camera bodies are 100% style over substance.
Why buy a M instead of a D800 or a 5d Mk II ?
Maybe here is one of the reasons:
LarryK: That's okay, there are no such thing as "Pro" CEOs, just people with business degrees making lucky guesses and being paid huge sums of money even when they're wrong.
Managing a company is making guesses, yes.
historianx: What Oly should do is develop and release a bridge s/z similar to the Pannie FZ200 but with a 1" or 4/3 sensor and some sorta sweet 25-600 or higher constant 2.8 Zuiko Digital lens. Take that, Panny AND Leica.
What Leica has to do with that ?Ah right, they are expensive so the inquisition want them to burned.
Come on ! What a crappy cam hahaha.My Nikon V1 focus much faster than this and is 1000x cheaper...muhahaha
Comparing a medium format camera to a FF camera is like comparing a FF camera with DX...that makes no sense and people who stick to medium format just know why. Just sayin'
Anepo: One of his photographs on his website can literally be called a pedophile photograph, it is an underskirt photo of an underage girls bloodied underwear, an EXTREMELY inappropriate photograph that screams "call the cops".
As may say Bruce Gilden: You are the pedophile to have such thinkings !
What a review ! I've seen nice charts. :/
And what if the dog roll over ? xD
Difficult subjet. Take pictures and do your job to record this tragic event...or...put your camera away and help with others ?I don't know...If you take Robert Capa I don't think he would have taken a gun instead of his camera to record D-Day etc.I think problem is nowadays people are offended with everything. And I understand that because of people's magazines and paparazzo the job of photographer can now be taken for voyeurism...
Sometimes I am wondering of one day we will have news without pictures to illustrate them.
A friend sent me a Leica M3 from France to South Korea.For whatever reason postmen misunderstood South Korea and sent it to South Africa.The package went from France to Germany, then Germany to South Africa, then South Africa to Hong Kong, then HK to South Korea.I wish my friend had put a camera in this package...but I'm not sure we would have seen much more than usual logistics stuff.
Amazing ! Well done Sigma. Too bad it's not a 16-35 but I guess I'm asking too much ;)
There is nothing wrong, at least in my country, to take others pictures in public places as long as these pictures are not degrading one's image.
of course people may get angry sometimes so there is obviously no reason not to apologize in such case and try to explain your project. If the person don't agree then just delete the picture...
The fact of using a flash on random people may be taken as rude but it is an other matter wich is not related to photography IMO. It is more a matter of how people may behave and interact with each other, especially when we don't know each other. What we can do, what we can't do, what happens if we do what most people would take as rude.
I think the biggest issue here is that most of people would just react by becoming extremely angry directly...so there is small room left for discussion.I think we should try to relaxe and keep in mind no one is hurt...that was just a picture and a bounce of light... Now ready to explain each other ?
Marty4650: Fuji is doing something very smart here.
They realized that the CSC market is already overcrowded, and they would never get much shelf space at Best Buy or Costco, so they created their own niche at the high end.
They have become the "MILC Leica" with an outstanding set of beautifully styled well made cameras and nice extremely nice lenses to go with them. They also deliver outstanding image quality, so they have credibility with high end users. They are expensive... but not nearly as pricey as Leicas are.
Leica is positioned on the niche market of cameras as a good photographic tool as well as a luxury good (more and more).
So for you, and simply because you don't like the brand (for whatever reason) you are telling us that they are not positioned on a market ?
I think you shouldn't make such basic and public reasoning simply because you don't like the brand.
You didn't say it, but you are surely the kind of guy who could have said: "I wish Leica will sink soon".
I've always wondered why someone may wish a company sink just because they don't understand their products or market position.
dpLarry: In USA years ago you used to lose a wallet and somebody will return it with the cash intact. I think those days are gone unless the people who picked up the wallet are senior citizens.
Hey ! I lost my wallet 3 years ago in France. I never got it back since then.
Is it sharper than a Leica M11 at Iso 12800 ?
Where is DxO sensor sharpness test chart for this camera ? Couldn't find it and it's all what matters.
Am I the only one not to like touch-screen ? I think I am doomed regarding mobile devices and camera. I should try to get use to it... ;)
