On Hands-on with Samsung's new NX500 article (336 comments in total)
In reply to:

Caerolle: So, I read elsewhere that there will be a model with a viewfinder, too? That would make me very interested in this camera...

NX30 is a little large. I think samsung needs a small body like this camera but with a finder. Like A6000 or GX7, etc.

tkbslc: Needs a viewfinder and it's instantly the best ILC on the market.

I guess I should have added a disclaimer "among mainstream products for typical photographers".

I would certainly take the Leica as it has a much higher value, but I would get more use and enjoyment out of a camera like the NX500 with a finder because I could afford a lens kit and have autofocus and high end video.

Chaitanya S: Its nice to see that Olympus slowed down the upgrade cycle, also they didnt drop the value of older em-5 over its life cycle. Eagre to see the reviews of new camera soon.

If you can really buy an E-M5 for under $200, I'd suggest buying all that you can find and putting them on ebay where they go for $400-500 all day long. Might be a nice arbitrage opportunity for you

Andrew Butterfield: Very impressive camera. As an E-M10 owner and enthusiast, I'm tempted. Love the fully articulated LCD.

$500 more than the E-M10 right now, though.

tkbslc: The most exciting thing for me is the mini-bounce flash. Can we get that for other cameras? That is awesome!

Read closer, and no, you can't.

I'm honestly tempted to get this just for the mini flash. That looks so useful!

They are selling the E-m5 for $600 right now and you can get it for under $500 used. Not sure they were able to protect the value much at all.

weather sealed, eh? Hope the optics are better than the existing 14-150.

Photoman: I loved my old E-M5, but I feel the Sony A7 MKI offers better value, if your talking price.

Sony wins most body-spec comparisons these days. But then frustrates with lens selection.

tkbslc: Seems like a waste to put effort into making the video mode nicer and then leaving off the headline 2015 video spec - 4K.

I'm not sure that one camera example is representative of the technology as a whole.

Ross Murphy: nice to see Pentax finally go full frame, more competition, better products all around. Im sure this will be a good one. The pressure will be on Fuji and Olympus now.

They are serving different niches well. I don't think anyone beleives Pentax will gain any marketshare with this move, but it does help keep their fan base happy.

tkbslc: What will be the competitive advantage that makes one pick a Pentax FF vs the other existing players? They need to do something moderately unique to stand out. They can't take on Canon and Nikon with a me-too DSLR system. Didn't work for APS-C and it won't for FF.

Sony has offered Sensor-shift stabilization in their A-mount FF cameras since 2007.

To beat Canon they need good AF, and more than a half dozen FF lenses for the system to go along with the sensor.

dosdan: I suppose some will be interested in upgrading to FF. I'm not.

Does this mean that Pentax users will soon have to chant the "You're not a serious photographer unless you're using FF" mantra?

Dan.

Ironic reply, Raintitan!

AbrasiveReducer: Well, the full frame segment isn't as crowded as the others so if it's cheap enough, you never know.... Or it could just be a way of saying we're still here.

The new lenses just came out at prices higher than Canon and Nikon, so I don't think they are making a bargain play.

Nikon already has a sub $1500 DSLR body right now (through price drops).

In reply to:

MayaTlab0: Too late. The future is with shorter flange distance mounts, Pentax K's mount is too inflexible to be successfully adapted to various designs. In addition Pentax's FF lenses lineup may have tons of references, but most of them are old and optically challenged. And new APSC lenses, like the 20-40, aren't particularly brilliant, and are suffering from QC issues.

Despite having some excellent points Pentax' APSC DSRLs have never been particularly successful. Now Pentax is going to do the same, but against FF DSLRs competitors. I'm not sure the result is going to be any different.

And how many of those people that prefer that have been sitting by waiting through 10 years of Canon/Nikon FF ?

KonstantinosK: I wish it won't have gazillion pixels

If it wants to be successful and relevant, it most certainly will.
