The Imaging Resource has NX500 tests done with a Samsung 60mm macro, to which the kit lens probably can not be compared - the mannikin looks as sharp as can be, but I don't think you'll get this with the kit lens, even though it seems to be rather good, better than average. Also I'm not sure that every GXR module has an APSC sensor. I like the lens better, but I like the Canon format and size too. (Not even the 24mm SonyZeiss comes real close to the best Samsung has to offer.) What follows are the headiest products of 2020, the ones photographers really want. Thought Pentax dropped the K01. Plus at 16mm this lens is the fastest of its kind, for an aps-c camera. And there's supposed to be a good Sony 50mm.). The SL1 downsizes by sacrificing grip size, but you still have the fat central portion of the body required for the mirror box. And those Sony lenses motivate a serious look at Panasonic, Leica, Samsung and Olympus for mirrorless. That's what I've been saying over and over for one year, and I've been fiercely attacked by fanboys claiming samsung is #1 and is outstanding. I have the 18-300 zoom lens and it is not good for long distance shots, I heard that Samsung is working on a 18-300 lens. So, everyone can find the right solution for his personal needs......amongst Samsung cameras, or a different brand......if one is aware of it's own needs. I used my cameras and lenses intensively and the relatively new Samsung NX30 got some more attention than the last weeks. I'll admit the GXR is hard to pigeonhole. The quality of the pictures will be better too.". Samsung NX30 first impressions review, Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Review: Monogram Creative Console - a refinement of our favorite modular editing hardware. Where's the Sony a6000 review??? It means the Samsung jpeg engine is falling far short of that of the em-10. The Canon EOS Rebel T8i (also known as the EOS 850D or Kiss X10i in some markets) is a 24MP DSLR aimed at first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts. I upgraded the firmware and results were better but still really really bad compared to my Nikon D3300. What it comes down to is that if I can't get it done with the NX system, the visual actualization of concepts (concepts to me the real currency in my work) then it isn't going to get done with any product, even ones much more expensive - let's face it most mirrorless systems have matured to the point of excellent image quality and performance, generally. @monkeybrainsThanks, haven't laughed that hard in weeks. Samsung's lenses have already embarrassed nearly every camera lens maker. The first player with a 'great' rangefinder camera with all the features of nx300 (for touch screen and lenses) a6000 (for dr, af, speed, buffer and form factor) and x-e2 (for evf) wins big time, imo. I depends, I've paid below 400$ (from shop exposition but no remarks. right, not all Samsung NX lenses are excellent, but you've named/have some excellent ones. I cannot justify both (but I am certainly not going to get a bloated nx30 to replace my nicely designed nx20). Samsung just announced NX Mini, the slimmest interchangeable lens camera. Additionally, the creeping perception of Samsung being competent in all areas but not top-running in any in their class (a perception supported by DPR, all respect extended) - that is demonstratively untrue. ...always look on the bright side of life... @ UnitedNations, the white racists still say the same today about the blacks after full integration. I tend to agree about 30 vs 45. But they absolutely have to shine, otherwise they'll remain a niche product, as good as it can be. Now who's laughing? Best Smartphone Gimbal (DJI OM 4, Zhiyun Smooth XS, Moza Mini MX). It allows you to tap the devices together to share photos. I work in the electronics business, so I can do the repairs myself, and I've done quite a few Samsungs. As the compact camera market continues to decline, Samsung has focused its efforts on mirrorless cameras, and recent models such as the NX300 show that the Company's products are quite competitive. Is that even possible?! I showed it to a friend owning a canon 5d mk2 and he even was surprised of fast af and great iq. Samsung must understand that they NEED to compete on prices and NOT offer cameras on par or lower than others at higher prices. I am newby dslr user so not experienced with these. ANd one thing more - compare the brightness of images.Some cameras presents ISO 1600 which is similar to ISO 800 other camera - I think it is marketing trick! As for the RX100, I dislike the ergonomics - (or "no-styling", ie emulating the ugly vanilla Canon powershot 100). Just a consideration from the data here on DPR: NX30 -> 15 I own, 69 I want, 11 I hadA6000 -> 261 I own, 152 I want, 22 I had. Notably, if you're using a compatible smartphones you'll be able to take advantage of the NX30's NFC feature, which allows you tap the devices together to share photos. Of course at some point Samsung will introduce a new APSC sensor, but today in June 2014, that sensor in the NX30 challenges both the A5000 and A6000 for image quality and higher ISOs.
