  • 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 ...
  • I really like the 2nd photo, and the 1st one is very good too. :-)
  • Daft comment? Oh really? Go ahead and download that photo above, uploaded specially for you (and all the other daft posters who think they know it all). There for you.... is an excellent example of ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • I've had mixed results with the 50-200mm. I keep getting decentered problems most often at 50mm. This decentered problem is very noticeable on the right side and improves once you increase the ...
