Re: Samsung EX2/EX2F - picture quality


I have red Panasonoic LX-7 dpreview test and compared RAW picture quality.

You can compare it to old LX-5 or EX2 /EX1.

I switched comparison form Canon G15 (too big and lack of 24 mm)) for LX-5 and Nikon 7700 I replaced (lack of 24 mm) to EX2 and I replaced very poor and also too big and without 24 mm eqv X10 to EX1 to see the differences.

LX-7 gives decent quality IMO. EX-2 unfortunately not - look to watch in right down corner or to left side.

What are your findings? Do you agree?

BTW I do not understand why in tests mostly camaras 24 and 28 mm are compared but 24 to 24 mm not....

If I look for 24 mm eqv I'm not intersted camras 28 mm It's obvious.

I will do some test in the shop as I said but I suspect that my choise will be LX-7.

Some my own feelings about EX2...

Sorry Samsung...

I do not expect wi fi in such camera and "happy" processing I expect simply decent PQ - in RAW it is necessary and tools fotr photographer - aperture ring proportions on the lens on LX-7 is very well seen, and I can pay even some more if the product meets my requirments.

I do not accept marketing features and Ii appreciate good tools for photographer (I think not only me)

There are many photographers using DSLR but good pocket camera is very well seen for every day shooting cases.

As we know we can not carry a heavy bag every day.

Having compact camera with very fast lens good picture quality properties is demanded.

This is also big market I think.

I hope in the future such cameras will be designed. No wi fi no filters-  simply PASM/good optics/sensor/ picture processing/ small external pocket flash system (big flash on small camera is funny) with synchro on shutter 1/1000s good battery+ spare with charger / good screen end EVF - fast operation AF files saving.

It can be 8- 10 MP it is enough but high Dynamic Range is well seen and focal range 24-120 mm very useful as fast as possible of course.

The choise we have today is very poor. It seems nobody wants to earn money....
