On Aloha! We go shooting with Samsung's new NX500 article (186 comments in total)

Well, it's a cam that either you 're keen to know it and enjoy it either you don't. Its characteristics seem good enough, but its performance seems rather idiosyncratic. The only medicine for judgements so far is its cost, 150-200$ cheaper would do the job, no matter if its already well priced.

Cost effective.
In some cases noise is controllable up to 8000 ISO from what I saw.
Its lens is quite capable.
Interesting all rounder.

Cute, tiny, anticipated, more to come from every competitor soon. Oly made the first step. Good for Oly. I prefer to see people with cams than people with smartphones...

aris14: Maybe the words of Mr. Maeda seem arrogant or the words of the "Man in the High Castle" and the same time serious, calculated and thorough. A high caliber CEO should act this way more or less.
Trying to read behind its lines, apart all very interesting and enlightening comments from the people here, what I see is the difficulties to run and keep tight a big business in its way. A way that it has to be first of all profitable and then everything else being a leading manufacturer.
If you are this big, you have to face quite more issues than competitors in every department , in every aspect. My feeling is that Canon cannot resolve these issues so successfully as it should do. It's a matter of corporate culture that big companies have alternatively adopted and their main goal is to compensate any malfunctions derived from it but leaving their profitability as untouched as possible. They know it well, they live with that and as a number is included in every product we buy from them. .

Further on...
Some may perceive it as practically autistic, some as a winning approach.
The only feedback we can send them, actually offering them a big favor, is by purchasing, when possible, what we really need and not what they usually offer under their badge just because it has their logo on it

aris14: In which cases do these lenses justify their pricing?

Ι am asking the question having in mind that these glasses are undoubtedly of superb quality, for a lot of reasons:
a. The field they are going to be used
b. The cost/benefit ratio factor...
c. ...having on mind that a descent image pp can produce equivalent results with that of a slightly minor quality lens priced at about half of their price

Pure professional use by real pros is exempted of course.

I hope some Brit buys is and burns it at the councils doorway - Who elected them to be our CULTURAL MASTERS anyway? Regulate some sewage or street crossing but stay out of the field of HUMAN EXPRESSION. All the way out.

Yikes!

Just a me too product in the niche of upmarket rangefinders with typical retro minimal design. Oh dear, oh dear...

A nice piece of glass...
DPR, I would like to see how this or equivalent quality lens performs comparing to some old lenses (24 up to 105 mm of 70s) of Canicon and Pentax.
