LaFonte: The only problem I have with pentax is their naming conventions. It is total mess with adding letters and numbers that are in descending order after the K. All the K-x, K-r, K-s.. get some system!
K-S1 like "K-mount - Small, 1st" - that one of all is actually easy to remember ;)
random78: I hope DPReview folks review this camera soon. Very interested to know how the new sensor stacks up against the other APS-C sensors. Samsung has always had a solid NX system, but lagged behind a bit on the sensor side. If the new BSI sensors bridges that gap then Samsung will really be as good an APS-C mirrorless system out there as you could get. Also I hope the new sensor tech trickles down to the smaller models soon, because as capable as the NX1 seems, I am more interested in the smaller bodies in the lineup.
dPreview never had any good or objective AF tests.You won't know anything about the AF performance after their review.
danieljcox: This camera looks huge along with it's lenses. The upside to the MFT GH4 and others in the MFT category is they are small, light weight and have hit a perfect compromise between size and image quality. I'm not interested in large cameras. If I was I would stick with my Nikons.

GM1 - the best m4/3 camera ever released. That's pretty much the direction where m4/3 should have gone and stayed. Things like GH4 or this one are just plain stupid. If you can live with a large camera you'd be much better of with a proper DSLR.
tomtom50: "a global mirrorless market share that only falls behind Sony" Anyone know the source on this? What I've seen is Samsung has 50% or so in Korea and single digit market share everywhere else.
UnitedNations - cameras as such sell very poorly in China.Chinese just don't like photography as much as "westeners" do.
marc petzold: The tech specs are impressive - especially the AF system, not only 15fps with af tracking at full 28MP resolution, but also it can go down to -4 EV, from what ive seen into the NX1 video.
Sony A6000? Nice...but the NX1 is so much better...a DSLM never have been that fast yet, even faster then Canons EOS 1D X with 12fps...can't wait for the dpreview test...competition is always great, for further developments and price reduction...and by the way: cheaper as the panasonic Lumix GH4, and *if* the video quality is equal in 4k...we have another winner here... ;)
"DSLM" - I laugh each time I see that. Mirrorless boys need to pretend they got something to deal with DSLRs or otherwise they feel inferior.
yonsarh: Proud to be Made In Korea products.
“The cheapest form of pride however is national pride. For it betrays in the one thus afflicted the lack of individual qualities of which he could be proud, while he would not otherwise reach for what he shares with so many millions. He who possesses significant personal merits will rather recognise the defects of his own nation, as he has them constantly before his eyes, most clearly. But that poor beggar who has nothing in the world of which he can be proud, latches onto the last means of being proud, the nation to which he belongs to. Thus he recovers and is now in gratitude ready to defend with hands and feet all errors and follies which are its own.” —Arthur Schopenhauer
b534202: So the 2x TC will work with these?
It will work fine. Just don't shoot in a low-light conditions.
Karl Gnter Wnsch: If the "Sport" version is geared at the professionals which do not care that much about weight, why isn't it at least f/5.6? As f/6.3 they are missing the limit of the focusing systems - and since that is a physical limit the focusing on almost all DSLR will be compromized and not function as advertised and guaranteed by the manufacturers!
Depends on the amount of light. If you shoot indoors - you will have problems mentioned, but if you shoot outdoors during a day - everything will work perfectly fine.
Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: Another @3 KG lens..too heavy. 1 KG heavier than Tamron.
It's a high-end Full Frame telephoto. What the heck did you expect?! Physics dude, physics. Learn them.
Chaitanya S: Tamron and Sigma have stepped up the game in recent years. Eagre to see how this lens performs compared to Nikon 14-24.
"is simply perfect" - no, it's not. Read some objective reviews instead of these written by Nikon fanboys.
mclaren777: I have been eagerly waiting to sell my Canon 16-35mm II and this looks like it could be the replacement.
We'll see. Maybe Tamron will come out with some clever adapter.People used filters on Sigma 8-16, everything is possible.
photo nuts: Probably appeals to many, but with bulbous front element and weight of 1.1 kg, I don't care very much for it.
Yea, don't care about quality, don't care about price, don't care about possibilities. 1kg. That's your problem.
Jesus.... kids in this age...
Nathan Cowlishaw: Nikon is a stinking bully. I'm glad I abandoned their DSLRs in 2008 when joining Micro Four Thirds and Sigma is a good company. Go Sigma! :)
Yea, all these companies bullied by Nikon. Must have cried all nights.
Nukunukoo: One wonders if Nikon deliberately programmed the firmware of their newer models to break Sigma's AF performance.
Apple at least got some reasoning behind it (smaller size, easier to use, cheaper to produce, more versatile) - Nikon has nothing.
luchs: Nikon has an advantage because there are 3rdparty lenses. Think of Fuji and Sony A7 cameras - how much more attractive would those two be if there would be Sigma lenses available since the native lenses are quite expensive.
And...? How that's any proof that Sony will ever "swallow" Nikon? Sorry, but you are obviously clueless posting crap like that.
fakuryu: Well if Sigma did infringe on Nikon's IP when it comes to IS, then why not if there is a basis for it. At least Nikon is not pulling off an Apple by suing better phones because of the shape or color.
Yea, go read daily mail of IT. Stupid headers made to lure people in while in fact got nothing to deal with reality. Law suits for design are always by far more complex than just "shape and color". Educate yourself before posting BS.
D200_4me: Meanwhile...the magical unicorns controlling the in-body VR inside my E-M1 continues to do a better job than my former Nikkor lenses. :-)
Jeez, someone's really butthurt.
Biowizard: There are already many, established, available and reliable "gimble" mounts for GoPro - what does this one have to offer that is any different?
Just google you lazy bum. He even gave you a query so that you wouldn't have to think about it! There are many, many other gimbals. In fact: So many that it's not worth bothering with building up a list of them.
ProfHankD: GoPro has been doing a really nice job on these and I think the key interesting feature is that these are now really top performers in terms of wireless tethered control. For example, my Sony A7, which DPReview praised for its wireless performance, still frequently drops & remakes the wireless connection when shooting as commanded by my cell phone from 10 feet away... not cool. Let's hope that makers of cameras with bigger sensors notice that the bar for wireless control has been raised.
dPreview will praise any camera for WiFi as long as it's got "WiFi" label on body or a box.
StevenE: They really need to compare this with the other new products, like the Sony that has image stabilization and an lcd
This one has an LCD too. On a front. Monocolor. ;)
