Very sharp, but notice the artifacts in the area of the sky against the cliffs (horizon). Either artifacts or noise. Not present in the Non SFD photo.

Very sharp. How did you process this? Very fine detail.

Now that I can view the samples, I must admit this is an impressive camera and the glass is good too. Pity the price is out of reach for most camera loving mortals.

What's wrong with all your images? Can't see the original sized ones. They just fail to load from the Amazon server.

George1958: superb camera, its a pity its a Samsung, otherwise I might have considered buying one.

@George 1058,
It's called Mindshare.
Canikon certainly has your MINDSHARE. In case you wonder what is "Canikon" - It is an amalgation of the words "Canon" and "Nikon".

If anything, it speaks about the power of advertising. It lodges deep in the brain and stays there, often for years or decades. No wonder companies pay millions to advertise.

I think this is your best shot of the lot @ 60 mm. Very naturally processed, yet sharp and detailed, and very Foveon-like. Samsung = Very good.

armandino: this system has too many bodies and too few lenses.
Canon made 1 sucking mirrorless yet offers an affordable 22mm f2.0. I got a Nex-3N and I would get an A6000 tomorrow if the system had an affordable and effective lens selection. A mirrorless like this screams for a pancake 22mm f2.0, the kit lens is underwhelming for a $600 camera.

Try Samsung. Good lens range except for long telephoto.

harold1968: Firstly FF has better absolute IQ, no doubt, I say this as the a RX1R owner, which apart from the A7R and the D800E, is the best thing below MF full stop IMHO.
Secondly however the IQ of the E-M1 is so close in most circumstances, it's quietness, portability and speed are clear advantages.
The lens size difference is massive.
It's also about technique as well, look at Ming Thein to see what can be done with the OM-D.
This is an absolutely superb camera that is still impressing me every day.

So why can't Olympus go and make an APS-C with ALL these great features of OMD? Then they can count me in.

APS-C and 20 mp is the minimum I will go. I must say this OMD is very impressive in every other aspect though.

On photo NX1000_15mm_(23mm)-10MP-AdobeRGB in Usee's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Very sharp. If Foveon DP2M was a 100, this one would be an 90 score at least. Not bad for a Bayer. It's like a much more expensive top of the range DSLR.

The sensor of NX200 and all its derivatives like NX210, NX20 and NX1000 is an award winning sensor in my opinion, and paired with Samsung's lenses, is a perfect match. IMO there is always this fine grained sharpness that sets them apart from other camera brands in the APS-C category, aside from Fuji.

I have been pixel peeping Sony Nex images mainly because I still like their features and build/form factor, but until today, I still say Samsung wins in IQ.
