  • I would be careful to check if the lenses are polarized and/or filter blue light first.
  • Replied in lens hoods
    I think people are just thinking of the 45mm lens hood, which screws into the 30mm filter thread just fine. But since it was designed for a narrower lens, I don't think it's a good idea to use it ...
  • This looks somewhat better but it's still not very good. Surely the 20-50 can do better? I guess I could try comparison shots between the 18-55@45 and the 45, but if this is the best I can expect, ...
  • It's not just you. Here's a sample OOC jpg on a fairly clear day at 52mm, f/5.6, 1/160s @ ISO 100. It's a blurry mess and no amount of editing the raw can fix it. You can blame turbulence or ...
  • The 50-200's only redeeming feature is that it's cheap. Otherwise, I can't find much good to say about it. It's supposed to be sharp when stepped down and used at 50-100mm, but that's not exactly ...
  • I still don't understand why Samsung won't put the rear dial from the NX200 back, going for another tiny wheel instead. Or if you're going to put a wheel on top, why not put it at the base of the ...
  • The 50-200 should be the cheapest NX lens. I've frequently seen them on sale for $100.
  • It is a vote against the 20, yes. I've never had the 20-50 or 18-200 so I can't comment from personal experience about them. The 30 and 45 are my favourites.
  • Why? The 30mm is a much better lens, slightly faster and equally compact. I tried the 20mm and found it had no better IQ than the 18-55. Sure it's slightly smaller than the 20-50 and slightly ...
  • I've had a few glitches with my NX200, mostly with the firmware freezing. They were usually reset by popping out the battery... only time this was annoying was when I had it mounted on a tripod ...
  • That, uh... that is some analogy. Do you actually know someone who breaks the handles off their coffee mugs instead of, like, tossing them out or giving them away?
  • I'd like to get this lens but I can't really justify it at $400 when I got the 30 and 45 for that much combined. Plus the last few times I tried shooting at 18mm I couldn't imagine adding an extra ...
  • I like it as is, at least for brightness. It makes it seem like it was shot on a cloudy day. If I had to pick at something, I would say it could have been shot at f/8 or narrower, and the ...
  • Here are some pictures taken from Antarctica in the dead of winter, when it's regularly -50C and sometimes as cold as -70: https://www.google.ca/search?q=keith+vanderlinde+antarctica+pictures&safe= ...
  • Nice pictures, I like them all, but probably #3 most. I guess you used a tripod for all of them? If so, what happened with the focus on the second last one? The rest look sharp and have good ...
  • Good stuff. Unfortunately Samyang/Rokinon 12mm is not heavily discounted - still $400. And of course amazon.ca/bestbuy.ca still have no useful sales whatsoever.
