  • The influx of people in the Samsung forums on these boards, all NX1 related, is quite astounding. I have been there for several years and the new message rate is much higher now.

  • I think it is funny how clueless people are about the Samsung NX1 sensor. It really is a great sensor, better than any current Sony besides the latest crop (remember NX1 has been out for 6 months...

  • 4/3" sensors (micro-4/3) are the same arcane sizing. Basically, anything that is 4/3" or smaller seems sized that way. Nothing wrong with it, but doesn't really make sense.

    All that matters is...

  • Define micromotor? Usually modern CDAF cameras use linear or stepper motors. It really all depends on how much torque is necessary, etc. An 85mm f/1.4 will probably have to use a different focus...

  • $1000 for a 16mm f/1.4 is expensive? What rock have you been living under? Nikon or Canon 14mm f/2.8 lenses are more expensive and two stops smaller aperture. Granted those are for full frame,...

  • $1000 for a 16mm f/1.4 is not really that high given competition. Nikon or Canon 14mm f/2.8 lenses are more expensive and two stops smaller aperture. Granted those are for full frame, but people...

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Hrmm, you can shoot the NX1 at various frame rates (including slower for better buffer performance) so not sure what your point is. Bottom line is competition is good, and Samsung just released...

    No, for almost any use case I prefer using my NX1 to my A7R or A7.

    No, for almost any use case I prefer using my NX1 to my A7R or A7. The use case I prefer with the A7R is shooting legacy lenses.

  • More important is connectivity, yes, they share with their phones, but if they can take a photo with a real camera and quickly transfer it to the phone to share, they will do that too. I do it...

  • Yeah, but the same is true for focal length. If used on APS-C the two would be identical in terms of focal length/aperture, but one is a lot large because it is designed to cover a full frame...

  • Yeah, but the same is true for focal length (it is fixed parameter of lens). Aperture is meaningless without some accompanying information, like field of view and focal length. If used on APS-C...

  • Great story, and well worth the read. Thanks for documenting it.

  • If past releases are indicators of future, they will have no less than 5 super zooms for the A7 within 2 years, all slightly different and no idea which is which. ;)

  • The price is normal for a 10x or so zoom range name brand full frame lens. Remember, full frame has about 1 1/3 stops advantage meaning this lens should cost significantly more than a 10x APS-C...
