"The EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM will be available in December for $599.99. "

24-105/4L is available for $600 off kits all the time on ebay.

14/2.5 II... 55g, just like the original.
" version of an existing lens but with revised graphics" - what does that mean?

Don't forget a tripod. F/6.5 lens this long is useless even in daylight.

N2? Samsung has more zoom and better sensor in its phones. :-)

Olympus should fire managers responsible for all that PhotoStory BS at the expense of 4k video and fast sequential shooting.

riskinhos: for that price just get full frame.

"APS-C BSI sensor probably will offer the same or superior quality as Full Frame non-BSI sensor."

Absolutely unlikely. But combined with f/2-f/2.8 kit zoom, it surely better than Sony with their f/3.5-5.6 joke of a kit (and probably even better than their overpriced 24-70 f/4 "Zeiss" - see corners of that "Zeiss" in every test).

USB3.0, UHS-II, 802.11ac... what stops every Japanese company from using the latest tech? So many still use USB2 in 2014!
Although Bluetooth 3.0 is a little out of date. :-)

Which full frame at $1500 with 28mpix, 4K and 15 fps with AF?
I mean, Canon 1D C for $12,000 comes closest but only 18mpix and 12fps with AF...

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.

NXMicro is a joke, nothing coherent about it. Just like Nikon 1 and Pentax Q, makes no sense to have ILC with the sensor this size when FZ1000 can be made.

That is one powerful camera. I wish they have learned from Fuji the design and firmware support practices though.
DPR, how about a complete review, including AF-C test at 15 fps?

On Samsung announces premium NX 50-150mm F2.8 OIS article (41 comments in total)

OK, could you predict that Samsung will be the second mirrorless system which acquires the essential pro zoom doublet? And m43 will get the doublet TWICE (from both Pana and now Oly) before Sony, Fuji, Nikon, Canon do it?
Sony got sidetracked with all that useless FE adventure, where every lens has to include that missing flange distance...

In reply to:

Serious Sam: Reading this, the Olympus and Fuji release. It surely make the Panny 35-100 a unique piece of kit in the market. Yes it has its problems but man seems no one is replicating that optical formula.

Having said that you can say Panasonic is the only one getting it wrong because it must omitted something for its size.

Pana 35-100 is great compact thing. Maybe corners are little less than perfect at 100mm, but for intended purpose (events/sports etc) it does not matter. That it is 3 times lighter than the Fuji with equivalent FLs is nice.
Now, the Olympus reaches further.

Long. Too bad it does not collapse. I guess it provides nice weather-sealing though because of that.

Franz Weber: And what about 1080p 60fps or higher bitrates? Heck 4K?

Pana got decent JPEG engine recently.

In reply to:

peevee1: What, Sony FE? DPR, are you sure it is not Sony A?

And what are they thinking splitting the market?
Also, where are the prices and availability dates?

120-300/2.8? 2.8! Not 6.3!

Why not to mention 200-500/2.8 then and declare it is going to be $26K?
They have competition you know.

Where did you get the prices? A Sigma for 3keuro? Does not sound real. Then they will never sell enough of them to pay for development of the completely different lens. Similar-spec Tamron costs $1069.
These 2 - might be $999 and $1499. And still almost nobody will buy the more expensive one.

peevee1: "weighing just 2 lbs 11 oz"

"Just"?!? It is more than 1.2kg! For comparison, Nikon 24-120/4 VR weighs 670g, and it is for DSLR, where 24mm has to be heavily retrofocus!
Twice the weight, twice the price, no even 24mm AoV - wasn't short focal distance supposed to bring advantages?

Regarding "the world's first 35mm full-frame lens with power zoom", this is an outright lie. Minolta had powerzooms more than 20 years ago, Canon had powerzoom 24 years ago

No "designed"? Who cares, if the digital ILCs did not change mounts willy-nilly and still can use them?
