supeyugin1: Alison should take care of her nail polish, it's peeling off!
Yeah, I'm wondering what's gonna come after peeling nail polish? I'm scared!
supeyugin1: You also forgot Pentax Q 15-45/2.8, it's an equivalent of 69-207 on Pentax Q7. The weight is 90g/3.17oz and the length is 56mm. The quality is excellent, and the price is only $300. I've got it as a part of a bundle, so it's cost was $200 for me.
There is Blur Control feature on Q-series cameras. Achieves similar effect, and it's really cool.
It looks unprofessional for the DPR staff.
nir-vana: A journalist should ask the tough questions and not just let Canon representative make an online advertisement. The man talks extensively about video but the changes are minor, late and not substantial. No articulated screen, no 4K, low end 4:2:0, no focus peaking, no advanced codec, no WiFi, no touch focus, no word about full sensor readout or line skipping. All of that make it inferior to the latest MILCs of Panasonic, Sony and other mirrorless brands, or even to Panasonic latest compacts.It seems like Canon still believe that their only rival is Nikon.
Why do insist on DSLR? DSLR is passe. You can't shoot good video with DSLR. DSLR is lagging behind. Yes, if you sleep five years, you will die. Try not to work for 5 years, then come back to market and try to find a job. Good luck. Yes, Samsung has some quality glass on par with Canon's L glass.

supeyugin1: A new king of pocketable compacts! Canon finally dethroned Sony. And it's cheaper too! Good job, Canon.
Well, at least Canon doesn't need to stick Zeiss or Leica name on their lenses.
I have mkI, and I wouldn't say it's exceptional up to Zeiss standards.I also have an R1 with "Zeiss", which is good, but not exceptional.
Zeiss just sticks their name on those. As well as Leica-Panasonic.
65 focus points and 10 fps? Hahaha!NX1 has 414 focus points, out of which 153 are PD cross type, and 15 fps! Hahaha! Canon is walking dead. Another 5-10 years and that's it.
Sony never made a good lenses, Canon, on the other hand is usually pretty good.

onlooker: NX1 looks really nice, but is nearly the size of an FF DSLR and a price not that far off. With relatively little name recognition in the camera world, it might be a hard sell.
Sony and Pana don't have bluetooth, except for Sony cell phone modules.
audijam: for a good 5 seconds i thought this NX1 has EF mount. good job on copying Canon's lens.....
If they release this lens soon, Canon is dead in the water. 7DII is an outdated piece of junk.
marc petzold: Samsung does nice cameras, into the beginners class, now the NX1 is something more for the semi-pro, and not a few pros using APS-C crop DSLR/DSLMs for tele reasons...one good thing for samsung cams in general: they'd get cheaper, after some months onto the market - for instance, check the NX3000, could be have now for as little as 299 EUR incl. the new 16-50mm PZ kitlens here...
They have 14 lenses right now, and all of them are APS-C. I don't think they will release an FF body, and they don't have legacy lenses to support, so they don't need an FF body. I personally don't need any FF body, as it will be too big and heavy, and the lenses too.
Jogger: Has any one ever seen a Samsung ILC outside of a store?
I've seen a few times in national parks.
Blackdog68: Wow, the 800 pound gorilla in the electronics field has spoken and every other camera company should be nervous. This camera checks lots of boxes: 1/8000 shutter, 1/250 flash sync, more phase detect sensors than the competition, 15FPS. It's an impressive spec sheet. Actual performance from this back sided APS-C sensor is yet to be seen, and the AF as well is untested, but if I'm Nikon or Canon and I've been waiting to really get into the mirrorless market, you may have waited too long.
Sorry, there are 14. What's so magic with 55? I mainly use pancakes, and rarely tele. I think my 50-200 sees less of the action.
Samsung has 16 lenses right now, not counting 3rd parties.
Too big of a sensor, I'd like to see 1/1.7" with 30-35 f/2.0 fixed focal. There is Samsung K zoom as well, but too much zoom and too slow lens, which looks pretty decent, this one is better.
TimK5: I don't have any clue about Samsungs camera quality and performance, but those are killer specs!
If I hadn't purchased the GH4 recently, I would give that NX1 a serious consideration.
I have Q7, up to 800 is good. 1600 is tolerable, in case of emergency.
