Lassoni: Luckily I don't listen to pop music (which I despise), so I don't have need to use spotify or other streaming services (since they most probably don't have all the songs I want to listen). Been much better listening to free or subscription based internet radios!
You are missing out on a lot then, no matter what genre of music you listen to. Pretty much everything is covered. Everything. Yes, likely even that 1953 recording of that hard bop trio you love that is no longer in print.
Does that lens hark back to the Topogon?
Dervast: Have you guys noticed faster start up times?
Same imporvement with 16-70, 16-50 and even with Metabones adapter. It's not a big deal because it was only about 3-4 secs previously, but it's down to 1-2.
Definite improvement here. It's now basically ready before I am.
I think there is a small but important misstep in this article.
"If they’re being honest, I suspect that most enthusiast photographers have at one time or another aspired to owning a Leica. And really when I say that, I mean a Leica rangefinder. "
I think it's the glass, not the camera, that people aspire to owning.
Mister Joseph: I wonder if it can AF with Nikon and Pentax lenses too (with an adapter of course)?
"Ah, I see their marketing claims improvement with the Metabones adapter for EF lenses"
Not really. DPR say that they experienced fast AF with a Metabones adapter. Not exactly the same thing as marketing spin.
(actually, I think that was in the hands-on, sorry)
ShootFilmNotMegaPixels: So what would the result be for a f/1.0 lens after using this adapter?
You know when they have night vision goggles on in the movies and then someone shines a light in their eyes? Kind of like that.
meanwhile: The prices are ridiculous, but as a child of the 70's - 128GB of freakishly fast storage that big, this stuff is getting pretty amazing. I started on a VIC-20 ...
There's no magic button to get back the 6Ev of dynamic range you lost by going to ISO6400.
What reduces is the image quality - nothing to do with the lens.
You are right though, I don't even know what a RAW is. Never seen one, never adjusted one. Could you send me one of yours so I can learn about them?
"What "reduces" about the lens as the ISO increases? The optical quality doesn't really change"
Why are you repeating what I said?
"But most of those things can be added or changed during extraction--especially: "Colour accuracy, vibrance, saturation"."
Ha. There we go then. You must be magic.
"Not sure what "colour fidelity" means"
Rubbish, but eh. Colour accuracy, vibrance, saturation, depth, etc. Nothing to do with the lens being optically better when it reduces as the ISO increases. Perhaps you are viewing them at wrong size?
Photographyblog ISO6400 shows noise a tie, with color fidelity and detail going easily to the NX1. Shadows recover as well in both. Not sure what you are seeing.
"Hey, if you want to take over and have fun with him, be my guest. I'm bored with him"
There's nothing more to say.
"Generally the DPR studio scene isn't great for making solid guesses about higher ISO performance, and that's because there's little in the way of deep shadows"
If there is already noise in the midtones and the highlights, it's only going to be worse in the shadows. And there is already significant noise in the 5500 midtones - more than the NX1 at ISO6400.
Nah, once you look at it equally in the DPR Studio Comparison tool, the 5500 is behind the NX1 by a noticeable amount. RAW, ISO6400.
Papi, just stop. He lives for this.
The other thing I'd say is, when the speed of storage outpaces the need, that fosters innovation and improvement in the products that use it, rather than playing catchup to just make existing uses more effective.

I only made one change to my 30mm to make it just right, for me. Duct tape around the focus ring.
How does this compare to an adapted Voigtländer 40mm f/2 Ultron?
Maybe "Earned" instead of "Owns".
