  • If the NX 16-50s is really better than all of the Samsung primes, then this zoom might possibly be one of the best 3x zoom ever. Hmmm....

  • Wow, thanks for the heads up. I was waiting for this D mount for a while and I thought no one would ever produce them. But I find it strange that there is no electrical contact on the adapter, I ...

    Like me, get the NX500, its more than $500 less.

    And the Sony crowd, and the Fuji, Olympus crowd. I have all four.
    I just got the NX500, it certainly is very OK indeed.

    I recently got a Sony A7 to play with FF, but I only use it for legacy lens, don't really care for Sony AF lens. I plan to get the NX500 soon. Samsung is my main system, I also have Fuji XE1 and...

    Why so concern about sales ranking. Just buy a camera that fits your needs, else everyone will just buy a Canon.

    Yeah, I wasn't too impress with my A7 either, since it was a FF. I don't think the noise is due to the size, as the NX500 is even smaller. Anyways, I will do a comparison when I get my hands on NX500.

  • My experience with HFT coating is that it produce very saturated color, sometimes too rich for my taste. The relatively cheap Rollei Planar HFT 50/f1.8 in Rollei QBM mount is a good way to ...

    Yeah, imagine the 28mp BSI sensor inside the Canon 7D mk2.

    How polish do you need, or you just want near perfection. Based on DPR, the camera certainly seems very usable already.

  • Here is a few that I have in my box. Schnieder - one of my favorite lens maker, still make lens today, but mostly professional ones. Steinheil, Schacht, Enna, Roeschlein, Staeble, Voigtlander (the ...
  • I am sure other brands does it too, but the point is how much distortion and do they charge a premium price for it. My opinion is the correction of distortion is one of the reasons for edge softness.
  • Have you tried cleaning will 99% alcohol with cotton pick. you can even rinse very very very carefully with alcohol as long as it doesn't get to the sensor. I imagine the salt has short circuited a ...
  • I would return it as soon as possible. That is a lot of dust for a new lens, not to mention its a very expensive new lens.
  • Replied in NX1 vs. NX500
    Thanks for the test. I see very little difference except in the near field and far left, but I am guessing it is due to the angle of shot and difference in focus points maybe.

    Very nice review.
    Now I am very eager to see the review of the NX500 that uses the same sensor as NX1.

    I agree about the base iso IQ of the NX10, I actually prefer it over my Nex 5.

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Actually, the zoom aperture starts at f2

  • Replied in NX1 score
    I think the gain from the NX1 here is that most of the parameters are similar but you get 24mp instead of 16mp.
