  • Thanks for your reply. I've been searching the web and I can't find anyone who is happy with AF speed using one of these adapters. Maybe you're right, just get some Sony lenses........... Anyone ...
  • Hello all Has anyone here found a good AF adapter for EF lenses on Nex cameras? I have an Ommlite adapter and the AF is useless. So slow and hunts so much, even in good light, that you may as well ...
  • I use mine in M mode with auto ISO. That way I can dial in the shutter speed to fit the lens I'm using and use the aperture I require leaving the camera to adjust the ISO. Hope this helps.......
  • Hi all Someone (can't remember where) recommended a Lowepro Newport 30. It's a older case which they no longer make. I found one new on eBay (UK) and paid less than £10 for it. It's a tight fit ...
  • http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A7CD9M2/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have one of these which I use instead of a lens cap.
  • This is a pretty good work around. Though I'd much rather a firmware update to turn of the screen/touch or fix the AF to the center. I've contacted Canon UK to tell them that there are a number of ...
  • How do you get over the problem of not being able to turn off the screen or turn off the touch screen feature. I have tried to used an old wide-tele viewfinder on my M, but I find that I keep ...
  • I agree, why not give the user the option to fix the AF box in the middle or turn off the touch screen or turn off the screen completely. Some people want these things. It won't stop anyone else ...
  • Yep, I think I will have to learn to use the M differently to the way I use my Canon DSLRs. Shame though because I like pretty much everything else about the M. I've tried a few similar cameras ...
  • Yep you can check the screen to see where the AF box is each time you shoot, that's not the problem. It's also easy to forget to check where it is just beofre you press the shutter, every time! Lot ...
  • Thanks for that. Not exactly what I'm looking for, but might help. I'll give it a try. Cheers Dave
  • I'm going to see if I can live with it. I'm used to using only center point AF in my Canon DSLR cameras (and P&S), so I do find it very annoying that I pick up the M to take a shot and shoot ...
  • I do have the camera set up so that the delete button sends the af box back to the middle (is that what you mean?) but that doesn't stop the af box moving around the screen each time I ...
  • This is a week old, but has anyone found a solution yet? I've just purchased an M, but I'm not sure I can keep it. I'm so used to having the AF box in the center of the frame (and not moving around ...
  • Morning all Quick update: I purchased a NX1000 from eBay and have now had a few days to use it. Love the camera! For me it is not a DSLR replacement by any means, but an excellent compact camera ...
  • Wow what a great forum! Thanks everyone. Yes I am in the UK. That does sound like a great deal at Currys. I managed to win the bidding on a NX1000 + lens on eBay and got it for £150. I'm happy with ...
  • I heard that the focus is improved in the Canon EOS, but still a bit slow compare to others(?) I have just been to a camera shop to have a go on the NX1000. It seems great to me. Focus is fast ...
  • Another question: Is the AF speed better/worse with the kit zoom v the 30mm pancake?
  • Thanks for pointing out your post de_klass, lots of info there. Nice shots too. Thanks to everyone else too. Is it not the same 20.3mp sensor (and therefore same IQ?) in NX200 NX300 NX1000 etc?? I' ...
  • Created discussions NX1000 is it any good or not!!
    Morning all I am in the process of figuring out which mirrorless camera to buy. I don't want a compact camera (even Sony RX100, which I tried and liked but not enough!). I want a big sensor!! It ...
