jonathanj's current gear

Nikon 1 V1
Samsung NX20
Samsung NX30
Walkaround camera / 2nd camera with zoom to pair with Samsung NX and primes. Love the Nikon 1 lenses, hate the cameras.
Backup camera to the NX30. Great image quality, shame about the slow responsiveness and performance.
Main camera. Almost perfect for me, only slight bugs in firmware stops it from scoring top marks.
Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6
Samsung NX 12-24mm F4-5.6 ED
Samsung NX 16mm F2.4 Pancake
Perfect general / travel lens for daylight use. Waiting for a decent Nikon 1 camera to use with it. Shame on Nikon for not supplying a lens hood with it.
My favorite lens. Small, sharp, great wide angle but also goes to 35mm equivalent on the long end.
Seeing less use now I have the 12-24mm, but still a great lens and works well as a set with the 30 and 60.
Samsung NX 30mm F2 Pancake
Samsung NX 60mm F2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA
Very sharp, very cheap, useful focal length. Every NX user should have one. Waiting on Samsung for a iFn version.
Portraits, macro shots, general 90mm equivalent telephoto. Good quality and sharp, but quite slow to focus.

jonathanj's previous gear

Casio Exilim EX-Z850
Minolta DiMAGE F200
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 (Lumix DMC-TZ8)
2007-2009. Second digital camera. Surprisingly nice camera to use, but sensor problem forced replacement.
2003-2006. First digital camera, still going strong with my dad despite numerous drops.
2010-2013. Third digital camera, replaced when I moved away from compacts. Given to family member, still works fine today.
Canon EOS 300D (EOS Digital Rebel / EOS Kiss Digital)
Samsung NX10
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3
2011. First (2nd hand) ILC, used while I worked out whether to go down the DLSR or MILC route. Chose MILC.
2011-2012. Excellent camera, first MILC, replaced because low light performance was not great. Given to a friend and still working today.
Girlfriend's camera, sometimes used on holiday. Excellent camera with good controls and image quality for the price.
Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm F4-5.8 OIS
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Girlfriend's lens for the G3. Very impressed with this lens, but the new version II is smaller, lighter, and slightly faster.
Lens was OK, but image quality was not great for the size, weight, and price. Sold on eBay.
