| p.2 #16 · Samsung NX is awesome..be sure to check it out. |
I bought Samsung NX1000 with 20-50mm last week week, with intention of using it as "compact" camera when/where my 5D II would be too big or inappropriate (NX1000 is practically NX210 w/o AMOLED, Metal body and couple buttons)
So far, IQ wise, NX1000 with kit lens is rather pretty darn good, considering price I paid for it (Under $400) although high-iso performance seems to suffer quite a lot and its JPEG seems over sharpened, for its price, Can't really complain for its image quality. One thing I noticed was, shadow can be brought up more than my 5D II can in Lightroom4, but highlights clip much faster than my 5D II does.
Ergonomics are Aright, although I feel Sony's mirrorless offerings are better interms of ergonomics.
HOWEVER, NX1000's responsiveness and speed is just plain POS like many other reviews have indicated. Even my old bridge camera (FZ-30) from 2004 feels faster in this regard and this is biggest problem Samsung's NX cameras have IMO.
I ordered lens adapter to use my Leica Summicron-R (35 and 90mm) on NX, and only when It arrives I can really judge Samsung's IQ, but so far, I am not pleased with it to be honest.
Being Korean, I used ALOT of Samsung products so far, and everything they make seem to lack "completeness." NX range have great IQ, but have terrible speed, kind of like their smartphones, which is supposedly one of fastest in market, but when I tried it, it feels bugged down and something seems to ALWAYS goes wrong.
Just my opinions
