  • 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.
  • Interesting, is that another dial under the shutter button? It would be great if it was; I think that design is more ergonomic/user-friendly than putting a most useless power switch under the ...
  • MemoryExpress is good, they have fast shipping within Canada. No idea about international shipping so YMMV. I guess they're clearing out their NX stock, although I have to wonder who made the typo ...
  • Well they can't be set apart any more than the width of the lens, and really more like half of the max pupil diameter. Based on the pictures I've seen that's roughly 2 cm, no? Most human pupils ...
  • It's naturally going to work better in videos, because it's using exactly the same principle as stereoscopic vision for depth perception. It's hard to perceive depth while standing still looking a ...
  • Replied in 30mm. Lens
    No, of course not. It should be sharp from f4 on and even 2.8 is pretty good. Do you have any examples?
  • Based on photozone review, the 50-200 is sharper from 70-200. Based on my experience with the 50-200, it's really not very good past 150mm or so, so I can't imagine getting much use out of the ...
