  • As a fan of Sigma Merrills as well, I chose Samsung because it was reasonably priced (at the time), had a good set of lenses (better than the competition), had ok interface, and good RAW quality. ...
  • Try Samsung. Good lens range except for long telephoto.

  • That is not high at all, it's the bottom half. Of course, not at the bottom...but top of the bottom half. It's what I would expect to see if I looked at the market share stats. Samsung is right ...
  • Amen to that. If NX1 is indeed a big and bulky Mamiya style design, no thanks....guess I will wait for the NX400.
  • Something like that. All we have now is a rumor that they will introduce a 50-150mm 'S' version, which.....is still a long time coming. Back in 2011, I think there was a rumor they wanted to ...
  • Samsung is still lacking a good long range telephoto zoom lens. It's been years and we're still waiting. I don't consider the system complete without a credible lens of this type.
  • Nobody said it was bad; it is just...... different.
  • It's strange there are no reviews of this lens until this day. The S version has reviews, but not this one.
  • If you look at the Quattro sample, lower bottom left corner, it looks exactly like a Bayer camera. The Merrill is still looking much sharper. Same for all the foliage, Merrill wins hands down. As ...
  • Final cost of 3 DPMs plus SD1 plus long lens would be $4000 - $5000 upwards, assuming you buy all second hand off eBay... A lot more weight and space compared to just carrying a set of lenses.
  • Replied in Honest answer
    True. Not including EVF in all the NX series except the NX20/30 speaks volumes, and likely cost them many potential sales. All in all, Samsung is just not compelling enough as a camera brand. They ...
  • I will buy it if they put that sensor into a much more conventional and useable body that allows changing of all those Sigma lenses that they produce.
  • Maybe you can post them here? I have NEVER seen any Bayer camera render distant buildings complete with their roofs with this much detail.
  • Not SD1, but rather DP3. http://www.sigma-dp.com/DP3Merrill/samplephoto/SDIM1545.jpg Well, the first time I saw this image sample, it sent shivers down my spine. I don't think I need to see any ...
  • Your experience matches mine in every way, lol. But concerning the decentered problem, there are ways to reduce or obfuscate it. I cope by using 65-100mm almost all the time, this is the sweetspot ...
  • Your attempt to portray yourself as having a linguistic advantage over me is failing. Let's see, on your earlier post...., you wrote and I quote - " I understand you photograph ?? birds so I'd ...
  • You making a daft assumption there. Very daft indeed. By the way, look this link up. 1st link should clear up your hitherto preconcieved erroneous notion of yourself. Should be enlightening.... htt ...
  • For your case, there is NO cure.
  • I have long suspected most owners of this lens do not use their 50-200 for other subjects besides birds or animals at a distance, hence they may not notice decentering problems with it aside from ...
  • Adam, sorry if your thread is being taken off course. Some people here are just odious by nature, and when I come here, which is rare by the way, I am always on the lookout for such types, which ...
