I've been frustrated and unsettled on this for so long;
EOS M Vs Samsung NX1000...
I say these because I have them here - I like to shoot FAST and love the NX offerings of the 16mm f/2.4 and 30mm f/2 pancakes - the 16mm can get amazing close-ups with wiiide backgrounds, the 30mm just makes more sense than the 22mm to me (re: crop DoF, perspective, portraiture etc) and I've always felt the Canon offering was a rubbish compromise.
Unfortunately; Samsung's sensor AND jpeg compression sucks, relative to the M.
I love the Canon sensor (though I'd possibly kill to have it replaced with half a 5D3/6D FF at 8-10 megapixels of Low Light Awesomeness - why is this seemingly never discussed?!)
...only today has it occurred to me that whilst Canon, Sony, 4/3 etc have a flange distance of 18mm, the Samsung NX system utilises around 7mm more - this means I can use these lenses wide open DESPITE their electronic focusing, simply by moving them slightly back and forth for focussing!
Give me a few hours/days and something can be fashioned here out of body/lens caps - but for now I can confirm this 16mm f/2.4 optically works insanely beautifully just being dangled infront of the EOS M - aaahmahgah!!
I'm really excited about this, I think I'm right to be, too! I've wanted a wide, fast pancake on here for aeons and can't believe this has never occurred to me!
Shall try and get pics to share soon - I think it might also be worth noting the Tilt-Shift capabilities here! I've done a lot lot lot of experimenting this morning (50mm f/1.4 hand-held T/S play has been fun!) and could babble on for hours, but won't.
Somebody tell me I'm being awesome and not an idiot, please?!
