Re: Take a Macro lens!

the NX100 does have focus magnification but its only 2x. It also has focus assist mode but I find that hit or miss when using it in real world situations. Still unless im really trying to focus on something far off, the 2x isnt that much of a problem. Even then I can focus to infinity and double check the front focus area.

Other good lenses that work well are SMC-Pentax-m lenses, and screw mount lenses. If you can find a 28mm, that is a cheap lens that is close to a 40mm. There are several good 50mm and 55mm that are fast, easy to focus, and are quite useful as portrait and close up lenses.
