On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (504 comments in total)
In reply to:

dodgebaena: I too am not a Pentax shooter but I know friends who swear by Pentax, and have heard glowing testimonials. What I don't understand is why more manufacturers don't incorporate an articulating/tilting/swiveling LCD. After I used one with the Canon 60D (I'm now a Sony a99/a7II/RX10 shooter), I can't see myself shooting without one.

avicenanw +cane:

The D750 isn't sealed to the level of the D810 or K3.

Possibly the EM1 is sealed to the level of the K3.

Articulated screens can also be easily snapped off.

jpino79:

Not particularly well, it's not something I'd take outdoors in light rain. And the D7200 isn't likely up to the weather sealing standards of the K3 or 7DII, but the D7200 hasn't been dissected yet.

vesa1tahti: No integrated flash? It means, not a modern camera. D7200 wins. Cheers.

Nor be the Panasonic LX100 "modern". Or the Canon 1DX.

And nor is the Olympus EM1 "modern".

Weather sealing, examples: The Pentax K3, the Canon 5D, 7DII, the Nikon D810, and D7200.

That's why these cameras have skipped the articulated back screen.

The 60D isn't designed with pros in mind. From that list the A99 comes closest.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1143 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jylppy: Just tried NX1 briefly in a store. It has the best EVF I have ever tried and it starts to be at acceptable level (for a user used to FF OVF ). The NX1' EVF is far better vs. Fuji XT-I or Sony Alpha 7 II. However, the lag is noticeable and the view is nothing to compare e.g. Nikon D810's superb OVF (which is far better than in my Canon 5DII's, btw).

Another notable thing is its mechanical construction. It did not feel a high-end camera at all, but a poorly build plastic toy. I do not know is this impression due to low weight or not, but compared to Nikon's D800 and Canon 5DII the camera felt like a toy. Not a serious, robust photographic tool.

Jylppy:

Can't speak to every mechanism or switch in the NX1, but the body is magnesium not plastic.

You're not the first person to think that a magnesium body feels like a plastic body.

Want a good OVF, the D4S or the old Sony A900.

In reply to:

refillable: I am honestly perplexed now... I don't think this camera is much different than my a6000, yet it is more expensive. There is no clear advantage from my camera to this, as far as I know. Except 4K recording which is not that important to be honest. Can someone explain to me what justification the '87%' rating is opposed to a6000's 80%? Thanks

refillable:

More solidly built, greater weather sealing, better APSC lenses, better EVF, uncompressed raws.

The A6000 is nice, and most of the FE (full framed E) lenses are excellent.

naththo: Sony sensor is now nailed in the coffin! Can't believed it! Samsung trump over Sony by miles!

AmateurSnaps:

But your original point wasn't to compare the lens line up with Canon's.

Rebel is a Canon body line in the US, not a lens line.

I stand by my exact original point: Except for a fast telephoto, which exists but hasn't released, there is no significant deficiency in the Samsung NX line up.

And the inexpensive Samsung 30mm and 45mm are in most ways optically better than even Canon L lenses.

Mike FL: For people who questions the $400 price drop last week, here was the news for you as seems People likes B&H better than Amazon.

"B&H: Samsung NX1 with 16-50mm f/2-2.8 Kit
$2,399 (compare to $2,799)
Expires 04/18/2015."

http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2015/04/15/camera-deals-of-the-day-canon-lens-price-drops-samsung-nx1-kit-2400-refurb

BTW:

One thing I NEVER do is questioning others for some thing I do not know and/ornot aware of.

BUT some individual will do SHAMELESSLY as far as I can see from posts below.

April 18th has passed. The price went back up. Also someone couldn't have purchased anything from B+H for most of Saturday April 18th.

You didn't mention anything about a price drop for a limited period. (Specials for a week or two aren't new, or exclusive to Samsung cameras.)

So misdirection there.

And you've still not addressed the propensity to conflate a bigger market share with higher gear quality.

nandbytes: dxo does a review on NX1, its IQ doesn't seem much better than any other APS-C like A6000, D7200 etc - http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Samsung-NX1-lens-review-Hail-the-new-king-of-APS-C-hybrids/Samsung-NX1-vs-Sony-a6000-vs-Sony-A7R

The only APS-C that impressed me was the D7200 with its impressive dynamic range - http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Nikon-D7200-versus-Samsung-NX1-versus-Sony-A6000___1020_976_942
The SNR is roughly the same between A6000, D7200 and NX1 but D7200 is way ahead in dynamic range (seems to be only second to the D810).

Junz:

I didn't bother to read the tread.

Note, I never claimed that you stated that the NX1 is a joke.

You're not gettin' this point, DXO scores are a joke, no matter the camera. I'd not pay real attention to a high score either.

JunzInc,

Nope DXO sensor scores were also a joke then.

And the NX1 is far from a joke. It has amongst the best APSC sensors.

Figured out the corrupted updater file.

Wish Adobe would make this straight forward.

Mike,

You don't like the fact that you got caught posting incorrect price drop information, and then also conflating market share with gear quality. Dismissing the points as coming from a "fankid" doesn't help your position.

In reply to:

Timbukto: IMO very luke warm. SLT grabs 1/2 stop of light, IBIS is not very good, and tracking is not the greatest. So why even bother with the DSLT form factor...

Minolta A mount lenses and the Sonys that followed.

Gesture: What can Sony do to get traction in this platform?

Release the A99 Mark II with the sensor from the A7S and get rid of raw compression in general.

Don't treat DXO sensor scores real seriously. They're mostly a joke.

Junz, you too.

kierenlon: Good news.

I can only hope for a firmware update for the coolpix A to do the following if you are reading this Nikon...

1. Add CLS commander mode
2. Remember focus distance on wake (useful for pre-focusing with af-on)
3. Screen off (to save some battery in the absence of #2)
4. One touch zoom for image review

SSanta:

I also think for a GRII, or CAII, to be well sealed the lens would have to protrude a bit and not retract into the body. Then the body would be thinker.

Perhaps Ricoh/Pentax can revive the relationship with Samsung and purchase the 28MP sensor for use in a GRII with PDAF.

But f/8.0 means increases in ISO, or only shooting in daylight.

The point would be to use on sensor phase detect AF, in combination with contrast AF. The Sony sensor in the A6000 has PDAF. There are others, including a variation of the existing 16MP sensor.
