CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

NX10 & Hexanon - AR?

For various unavoidable reasons - I have not been around here much for a while, or doing much shooting, but getting back to the status quo sees me ordering a NX10 (now much reduced) and an adaptor for my beloved AR Hexanons. I'm looking forward to arrival - and trials, especially with the 40mm f1.8 pancake....anyone using this combo - or any thoughts etc.?
Cheers DW

I started using Konica AR Hexanons on the Samsung NX10 last week. So far so good. Too early to come to any conclusions yet - have to go out to shoot more first.

OT -- Good to see you back Dave. I recently acquired one of your Elmar lens hoods from buzzardkid (though it hasn't made it to me yet) which will grace my Zorki 1 & I-22.

i love using my ar's on my ep2. ive used zeiss/contax, leica, cv etc glass on it and have not found any that performed better than the ar's. i think youre in for a treat, as from what ive seen the sammy has better iq than my olly.

while the 40mm performs well, for me the star of the series is the 57/1.4, it is just stellar and an amazing low light performer.
