  • 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.
  • I guess I could justify this if I could find someone to buy the kit lens off me. Well, not really because I don't use my NX200 as much as I should anyways. It's a good deal for anyone who doesn't ...
  • IMO, it's not worth the effort to try to photoshop out something in front of a brick wall - it's too easy to spot cloned/repeated patterns of bricks compared to on a plain monochrome background. ...
  • The 20mm I got was noticeably worse than the 18-55 at 20mm, so I returned it. If the 16-50 is as good as the 20-50, and more compact with OIS, then I don't see any compelling argument left for the ...
  • I like #3, was that shot with a polarizing filter?
  • I like them, post-processing and all. Mostly because the colours are appealing and both the sky and ground are interesting. What are your thoughts on the 12mm so far? Is the vignetting uncorrected? ...
  • If it's as good image quality as the 18-55 while being half the size and having better AF, I think that's an ok deal. Nothing to get excited about but a reasonable improvement for anyone buying a ...
  • I like pretty much all of your shots on Flickr, but IMO the dark 'halo' around the docks in the first two pictures is too obvious and distracting. Did you use Photoshop's HDR plugin or something ...
  • ... seriously? This website would have looked sketchy 15 years ago. All it needs is some spinning UNDER CONSTRUCTION gifs to complete the look.
  • Well, it's just hope at this point. If it's no good, I might just wait for the 12-24 to go on sale, or get that Samyang 12mm f/2 if it's good.
