DxOMark investigates Samsung NX cameras and lenses


Our friends and collaborators over at DxOMark have been investigating Samsung’s NX system, and have recently published reviews of the NX210 and NX300 cameras, alongside an article covering how the company’s lenses measure up in comparison to those from the Sony NEX system. Other reviews on the site this week include lens tests on Nikon super-telephoto primes, an assessment of the Sony RX100 II’s new back-illuminated CMOS sensor, and the first installment of a multi-part article looking into which lenses score best on the Canon EOS 6D.

The real question is lens/camera combination. What these results show is that Samsung has caught up in sensor technology (which, given it was lagging by a generate or two a few years ago, is impressive). Samsung’s remaining problems are the lack of a halo product and the lack of a recognized lens brand.

I played with some of these cameras in a local Best Buy and they feel good in hand and are very responsive. But there was no sign of a non-kit lens.


I don’t think any of these can be called good,
by which I mean “can compete with 35mm format.”

never the less these are no worse than Japanese. mirrorless is the future that established Japanese makers do not want to face. because it opens a new world for many new comers to join, Koreans, Chinese, and maybe even German (not rubbish brands like Leica or Zeiss, but their real talent to actually design and make cameras and lenses).


We are talking about that test here:
