  • What about a 3rd part 70-200 F2.8 like sigma?
  • I just picked up a very nice used copy of the Sigma 120-300 f2.8 along with both their 1.4x and 2x TC.    Total was about $1800.  Loving it so far.  With the 2x things are a little soft but since ...
  • this may not be the popular opinion, since it will suggest "downgrading" from an older pro model to a newer enthusiast model, but I think you would being doing a disservice to yourself if you did ...
  • What about the new Rokinon 135 F2. It is getting very good reviews. That is if you can cope with Manual Focus. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1110693-REG/samyang_sy135m_n_135mm_f_2_lens_for.html
  • Also the NX1 can support much faster SD cards that were not used in the test. That alone would make a huge difference since the write speed of the newest cards is 280mb/s instead of the 90mb/s ...
  • If you look closely it says 1999 after tax of 21% or 1652 before tax which is roughly $2000.  Also I didn't notice this at first but to the right it also says FREE battery grip " a 239 value"  So ...
  • I don't know about the zoom but that price is super interesting.   For us USA folks that basically means $1999 before tax.  Doesn't jive with the $2799 price point of the current kit though.  No ...
  • Yes it seems the focus zone limiter on the 50-150 is working properly.
  • While not a shining star there is already an 18-200 available. I think what could help most is if Samsung could get Sigma on board to offer some of their newer lenses in the NX mount.   If you ...
  • 100mm <-> 150 mm macro 1.4x  & 2x Teleconverter
  • If you just want 2 identical copies of your data I think a mirrored raid array would be the easiest or buy a NAS device with raid functionality built in. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx? ...
  • I believe here he is talking about the DRiMe V processor using 32nm lithography while the sensor is using 65nm.  This would be consistent with using some of their older ARM processor fabs to make ...
  • Replied in Samsung NX1
    Not yet available but will be soon.   Samsung NX1 - a little over price range but after a month or 2 the price will come down.  Has everything you are looking for potentially.
  • I was not saying that anyone here knew more than Samsung - I was simply pointing out what can clearly be heard being said by presumably a Samsung presenter - on the video at a 2:20 he says "70 raw ...
  • Let's do the math..... If we are using the newest UHS-II cards with a write speed of up to 300MB/s but the literature form Sandisk says theirs is 250MB/s write 300 read or lexar 280 for both. But ...
  • That is what I  thought too, but this seems to be an official Samsung presentation in the background at PhotoKina.   I would hope their presenters have the right info.  maybe not ?
  • Created discussions NX1 Buffer size
    There has been a lot of talk about the speed of the NX1 @ 15fps but some question as to whether the stated buffer depth of 70 images was JPEG or RAW. 70 JPEG would put it in line with the Sony A77 ...
  • I have never used a camera with 12-bit raw , only 14-bit so I can't say how much difference there would have been - but I have seen several comparisons between the shadow pushing capabilities of ...
  • Most interesting thing was that when talking about the new BSI sensor he said the photosites are the same size as the 20mp sites from the NX30.  If all of the other enhancements to the sensor can ...
  • My guess is they get about 3 extra frames per second by going from 14 -> 12 bit for high speed bursts, maybe a little more.   I think it would awesome of we had the choice between 15fps @ 12bit or ...
