  • There was a change in CEO level leadership at the time and the camera market was collapsing. I don't think they ever officially announced anything, but any work in progress suddenly stopped (like ...
  • The NX1 gear is great, I took advantage of the high used prices and sold all mine. I miss the equipment, but can't say I regret my decision. It is still great gear, but for the price I was able to ...
  • Depends on your situation. If I only had one I would take the 50-150mm, but the 85 has the 1.4 aperture that cant be matched. I will say, once I bought the 50-150mm I used mostly it and the 85mm ...

    I have a Sony FF just to use alongside with the NX, mostly for testing lenses, which I haven't had time to do lately :)  It is a first gen A7R. Forgot I never tested the 50-150mm, it is a great ...

    It was unfortunate what happened to Samsung Camera division and NX1, the NX1 had the potential to basically be the best APS-C camera on the market (I think they needed some more photographer input ...
