First Samsung 16mm image samples and new Samsung NX200 mockup.


The SamsungImaging website (Click here) posted the very first image samples taken with the new 16mm f/2.4 pancake. Anyway, it’s to early to give a final judgment about the optical quality. And DSLRmagazine (Click here) wrote the very first preview with all four new Samsung lenses (16mm, 60mm macro, 85mm portrait lens and 18-200mm zoom). As you know you can already preorder the Samsung pancake at BHphoto (Click here).

And according to Redcrow the NX200 wood mockup you can see at SLRclub (Click here) looks very close to the real NX200!

New Fuji X100 news and reviews

Fuji Finepix X100 or vs Panasonic Lumix GH2: compared, which one is better? Video by MIke Kobal (Thanks!).

Jonathanjk (Click here) posted a new X100 review: “If you’ve read this far, you might confuse my praise as fanboy love for Fujifilm and the X100, this isn’t entirely true. There’s certainly love written here for the X100 but I don’t share it with Fuji, this is where a fanboy and myself differ. Instead Fuji are in receivership of my admiration because of what they have brought to market. I’ve waited a long time for a camera like this, the strong demand will hopefully bring Fujifilm to release successors in the near future and convince other manufacturers to reconsider how they approach the market for small capable cameras.

I guess almost anyone already have seen this: Fujifilm FinePix X100 Birthday Cake (Petapixel).
