justmeMN: In 2016, I suspect that we will see, concurrently, a lower-priced M3, and a higher-priced, fuller-featured, M4.

You would be wrong.

Mitch452: This is why the NX1 doesn't sell, and why I returned mine. Samsung tried to go all out with the hardware, but seriously lagged with the software/firmware.

Stabilization for video should have been there from the get-go, along with everything else they neglected to include until years later.

Canons sell for more because their cameras do what they're stated to do out of the box, and very well at that. Same goes for Sony who seems to be doing well with mirrorless.

The h.265 codec was an incredibly stupid move. Neither Handbrake or Samsung's own converter software could get the videos to play back.

Too many software based features still lacking, and bugs left in for it to be considered a professional camera. The automatic mic leveler doesn't even work.

The NX1 seems to take excellent stills, even in auto. But everything else needs work. Another frustration was Apple not supporting NX1 raw files. If they haven't done so yet, who knows if they will.

Lots of desperate, miserable, hapless NX1 owners pimping and putting their insecurities on display as usual. Howaboutraw should be here soon with his usual outrage,, how very dare you criticize this camera! I will agree that the video on this camera is brilliant,, but the stills AF tracking is comical,, even a t2i with 4 fps will give you more keepers in field sports than this turd will at 15 fps.

wassim al malak: Except the 1 f/stop light and DoF between f2.8 and f2 , how can that sigma be compared to tamron 15-30 f2.8 vc ?
please correct me in my conclusions , if i'm wrong :
1- 15 is very wider than 24 .
2- 30 is near the 35 .
3- VC can help collect light in some cases .
4- the main drawback is the instant 1 f/stop and the DoF and the filter thread at the sigma .

The difference is obvious to anyone with eyes. The Tamron is a toy compared to this thing. You need that extra 9mm? Get the Tamron,,, in every other way the Sigma is superior.

HowaboutRAW: These aren't the strongest aeroplane pics.

That beta 747 is more interesting. Different series.

And number 1 in this series is basically an opening shot from the original version of the TV show "Hawaii 5-O", circa 1968.

lol,, you are a very small, petty man.

Some of the critical comments here are petty, rude and embarrassing. Not one iota of constructive criticism. Get a life.

tko: I have never wanted a Leica, and indeed laughed at the people who own one. This latest incarnation is as ugly as ever. I wonder if Leica even knows there is such a thing a modern CAD software than can actually generate round corners and shapes that are easy to hold. This looks like a lens on a Crackerjack Box and indeed, they've managed to make it look ugly from every angle.

In today's world, the more you make of something, the cheaper it is and the fewer flaws it has. Low production isn't a good thing.

Damn boy, who took the jam out of your donut?

22codfish: For that money, I would prefer the Pentax 645Z

Damn straight,, this is a Versace Shirt,, $800 because of what it says on the label. Anyone who says a cheap DSLR can't do what this does for a whole lot less is delusional,, and sad. But hey, if you have the money and it makes you feel better about yourself,, then why not?

Don't take any sample pics of folk with acne, we'll never hear the end of it.

I think she means black-spot fungus on the roses.

On Canon announces 50mm F1.8 STM lens article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jeff Keller: For those looking for MTF diagrams:
http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/lineup/standard/ef50-f18stm/spec.html

Odd,, MTF chart is exactly the same as the mk II.

With a different MFD, filter size etc. , I assumed the optics had been redone for the STM version.

In reply to:

Cjar: Canon should do an advisory about poor image quality I'm the SX60.

Wahhh wahhh wahhhh. You sure do whine a lot. If Canon sent every SX60 owner a 10LB solid gold Brick by way of compensation, you'd be the one here complaining that your brick it wasn't shiny enough.

Kevylloyd: I agree this seems like an already crowded area of the market, but it will make more sense when the Pentax version comes out for their future FF body.
It may also be better than the rest of the market, looks tough, I just hope it controls CA well.

>> it will make more sense when the Pentax version
>>comes out for their future FF body.

I just laughed so hard I peed a bit.

In reply to:

bmwzimmer: Hey DPreview,
In the test scenes, Why are you using a cheap $350 85mm f/1.8 lens from 1992 on the 5DSR which is originally designed for Film?????? Can't you use a slightly better lens from say...this Decade?? The Contrast, sharpness and CA are horrendous...

The Nikon D810 is mounted on the $1600 Nikkor 85mm 1.4G from 2010 which is one of Nikon's very best Prime Lens according to DXO mark and easily capable of resolving very High Megapixels...

RIDICULOUS GUYS, PLEASE USE A SLIGHTLY BETTER LENS PLEASE

Horrendous Contrast? CA & Sharpness? What are you babbling about?

At f5.6 this old lens handily out-resolves this sensor.
