  • My extra NX1 battery and charger, which I ordered at the same time as the NX1 body, were shipped out to me yesterday by B&H. But no body yet...
  • Incredible. Thanks so much for sharing.
  • You're right! It's not a brick. :-( It's (and my V3) much more like half a sandwich!  :-)
  • Until now, the NX system has had a reputation of quality, but affordable glass. Typically the 300/2.8 lenses cost around $6 grand, which is out of my price range. (I'd be pressed to come up with ...
  • I think the detachable part is simply the lens hood (which are quite long at this focal length), and not a lens element (like the old Leica system with swappable modules that cost a small fortune). ...
  • The link worked earlier; probably removed. I saw them this morning and felt most had an HDR look, so maybe processed with some Photoshop add-on that made them seem over-sharpened.
  • Replied in BSI / ISOCELL
    Does anyone know if the BSI CMOS used in the NX1 have ISOCELL technology? (Since it's not being mentioned in the Samsung announcements, it would seem unlikely.)
  • No AA filter (nice!) per this preview: http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2014/09/15/samsung-nx1-price-specs-release-date-confirmed/#null
  • Replied in EM-1 vs GH4
    I have both. I prefer the handling, menu system, button layout, AF speed and video with the GH4. However, there are times that IBIS is so superior that I trust getting the image more reliably with ...
  • Replied in Another idea?
    Bill, The only other thing I could think of for your problem is the color gamut of the JPG setting. I keep my cameras on Adobe RGB, rather than sRGB, since it has a greater gamut for JPGs. What I ...
  • Replied in Some questions
    One suggestion is if you notice this again, put the camera in Daylight mode, not AWB and compare various car colors. This will eliminate the camera trying to respond differently to the car's color ...
  • Replied in 12-40 Pro
    Like the OP, I too found the 12-40 Pro not so sharp on my EM-1 or GH4. I recently got the Pany 12-35 for IS with the GH4 and found it was much sharper than the 12-40 PRO on either body. So, I sold ...
  • Replied in O25
    Maybe I had a poor copy of the Oly 25, but my Pany 12-35 seemed slightly sharper at 25mm as compared to the Oly 25/1.8 at f2.8. And the O25 didn't seem any sharper than my Pany 20/1.7 II, so I ...
  • I've taken many portraits with the 60 macro on the EM-5 and EM-1. It is very fast to focus and with the IS in body, you get sharper images with a greater keeper rate than with the 150 Sigma. I've ...
  • Replied in 2 bodies
    I agree with taking 2 bodies. the smaller 10 could be used with wide angle or wide angle zoom and the EM-1 with the 75-300 or 100-300 lens. Dust is significant and changing lenses will allow dust ...
  • The only time too many rings won't work is if the lens extends or recedes while auto-focusing and the extra weight is too great, or, the rings bind as the front of the lens retracts (and limits ...
  • Look at this site, he has very good suggestions on lenses, formats and exposure. http://www.lonelyspeck.com/category/gear/
  • No, but then the question was sharpest, not cheapest, pancake lens.
  • Replied in makes no sense
    YOU are incorrect. The f-stop varies the DOF as sensor size changes, but the f-stop is a ratio if the aperture opening versus the focal length. This ratio determines how much light enters the ...
  • I went through this same field of lenses and bought a new Voigtlander 40mm f/2 SL-II (available in Nikon or Canon mounts, so you still need an adapter) for my A7r. It includes a macro lens ...
