  • The 85mm on DX would be closer to 135mm FoV, the solution I found for my needs was the Samsung 45mm F/1.8 which is equivalent 70mm FoV but with a Little cropping I get the 85mm F/3.2 equivalent. ...
  • wow, so a brand new V3 from the dealer @ the equivalent of $250usd? That's a great deal, but here all the major retailers still have the V3 kit listed above $1k usd
  • Are  they slashing prices in Asia where the N1 has better sales and just leaving the fruit to rot in the trees in the Americas? Most retailers still have the V3 at  +$1k , :-O for a 2-year old ...
  • It's not that easy, the PD zoom leaves a lot of room in-front of housing which means the front of the housing will act like a mirror, sending lots of reflections back to the lens. Think of when ...
  • not compatible, need the original lens
  • Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I remember when the N1 system came out very few people thought that it was going to last. I remember Nikon D-SLR users being the harshest critics b/c they were ...
  • It is until they day you decide you cut the rope with Nikon's BS
  • how fast are your shutter speeds and how much light do you have available? If you shoot moving subjects, take your D750 + 200-500mm F/5.6 close it down by 2-stops to F/11 adjust your shutter speed ...
  • Replied in VR Comparison?
    I can't comment on VR b/c I mainly use the N1 system in good daylight so my shutter speeds are usually too fast to evaluate the effects of VR, As far as video, the zoom ring is a fly-by-wire type ...
  • Thanks to all for the replies, I went ahead and picked up the PD lens and did a few comparison shots, IQ is the same, maybe the PD has a tiny bit more contrast. Overall I like the build, more ...
  • Created discussion thread 10-30mm PD-Zoom vs 10-30mm regular
    How do they compare? I have the original non-pd zoom which came as part of my kit, but have an opportunity to buy the PD-Zoom version. Aside from it being more compact are there any significant ...
  • I shoot with the N1 system it's basically a fun upgrade to a P&S mainly for sunny daylight shooting. Nikon could have had  winner in their hands but they went with 1st gen poor ISO sensor of ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon EOS M3 Review & Samsung Exit
    I owned & sold the EOS M I, Just read the EOS M3 review and I’m just baffled on why Samsung decided to exit the market when their NX camera line is clearly superior to Canon, Nikon, and even Sony ...
  • It doesn't change the fact that the DL 24-85 does not have an EVF So what? you lose the hot shoe on DL, how much does it cost to add a 2nd hot shoe so you can use the EVF and 2nd accessory? Secondl ...
  • wrong "...so overall we'd say it's a very impressive lens and one you don't have to think too hard about, before using." - DPreview two of the Dls don't have an EVF, you can purchase the EVF but ...
  • A troll is someone who drops unsupported claims like “compromised lenses” without a single shred of proof and then is ghastly offended when samples or supporting evidence are requested. "Better" is ...
  • I’m “genuinely interested” in seeing how you can support your bogus claims. Where are your side by side comparison pics? how the are these lenses are “compromised” compared to Nikon compact zoom ...
  • You're regurgitating what I told you in my original reply to your post, ALL lenses are compromised, I even suggested going FX primes for your optical purity, and when you realized how flawed your ...
  • Point well taken on the dust bunnies, thank you. Now can you or dpr4bb provide samples of the compromised images taken with the compromised lenses in order to support your compromised logic?
  • I did try to "have a look at some photos" and noticed you don't have a single image in your galleries, please feel free to look around in mine and critique as much as you'd like. Can you provide ...
