jmmgarza: Samsung is a Korean monster. They are turning out very good products. How about their lenses?

They are quite good. I like the 30mm. The 20mm is also nice, and the 18-55 and 50-200 are good but a bit too big.
i've heard that the 60mm macro and the 85mm are impressive, but out of my budget.

In reply to:

bokane: the number one question is: how do you get the insects to remain still in the field while you take, not just one photo, but enough for focus stacking?

Get a longer macro lens, so you can stay further away.
you can also try with a zoom lens (like a 50-200mm) and an achromat (+2 to +4), so you will have 40 to 60 cm to your object.
Of course, the big problem there is the light, so try to do it in a sunny day.

Yeah, agreed. In Spanish we say "Aunque la mona se vista de seda, mona queda"

jpr2: alas, no OVF :( - no even EVF (although this is much less desirable); so, shooting at arms length negates most of
possible advantages in IQ, etc.

sorry, how you plan to put an ovf in a mirrorless camera that you can exchange the lens? It makes no sense at all. If you have something it would be an evf.

Ernest Beinrohr: i have just made such from 2 CPs. about 10euros with shipping. 3min of "work". the result however is blueish ;-)

Hi,
You should try with 2 linear polarizers (for compacts or EVILs), or 1 LP and 1 CP if you have a slr (LP - CP - Lens, in this order).
Cheers.

drakkar: TThis demonstrates that the "big bad errors", in vast majority, is the main commonly type of error in software industry, the software bug.
Its very important understand the critical moment in Fuji´s Seidan Factory in Japan, post tsunami. The Fuji´s crew has made a big effort to mantain, up to date, this big product, made in Japan.
Well done Fuji, and, only the time will show us the real potential of this excellent digicam.

Well, not always the software fixes are for software errors. sometimes you have hardware errors for whom you can implement a software fix.
For example, if the focus moves when you close the aperture (It happens in some lens designs), you can implement a software fix to compensate (at least partially) for that problem.
I'm not saying that it is always like that, I also see lots of software errors everywhere, but sometimes the problems are not in the software, but in the hardware.
