    Does anyone really even care about Samsung?

    • Curtis

      haha, i don’t. this thing won’t sell that much, i don’t know much people going towards a midrange DSLR by smasung

    • AlexRW

      I’m sure no one cares about the world’s largest tech company.

      • The Fez

        But is SAYS Samsung on the camera, not Apple.

    • Dummy00001

      I want to care. I’d like to buy a smallish and capable camera.

      Except for the Samsung, there is no real competition to the m43. (NEX doesn’t have lenses (yet) to compete for my money.)

      But yeah, Samsung tries very hard to make itself irrelevant. Fancy that: no body-only, no pancake kit options for all recently released cameras. WTF?!

      What’s wrong with the NX system. They have a good range of cameras with a good control system and a good lineup of lenses (including the superb 85mm) yet everyone bags them. Sony’s NEX have a very poor control system and a poor range of lenses (except the 24mm) and yet everyone sings their praises. The Samsung technicians must be pulling their hair out wondering what’s wrong with you people.

      • Sergey

        Simple:

        SONY has the most complete system. Especially when it comes to video.
        m4/3 has the fastest auto-focus and the most lenses
        FUJI has the best image quality and the best looking camera
        NIKON has the crazy 3x magnification with AF G-lenses
        SAMSUNG.. has iFunction… that no one cares about. AND their camera is U.G.L.Y.
        PENTAX doesn’t really have much to offer either, which is why they’re in the same situation.

          SONY has the most complete system. Especially when it comes to video.
          Wrong. The best video implementation in a stills camera is the Panasonic GH2. Full manual control and best video resolution. Sony also have the worst range of lenses optically. From photozone.de tested on their flagship NEX 7:
          16mm
          1 star
          30mm
          1 1/2 stars
          50mm
          2 1/2 stars
          18-55mm
          1 1/2 stars
          55-200mm
          2 stars
          m4/3 has the fastest auto-focus and the most lenses
          I agree that the m4/3 is the most complete system and the best range of lenses.
          FUJI has the best image quality and the best looking camera
          Image quality is debatable, they do have superb lenses and I agree with the best looking cameras.
          NIKON has the crazy 3x magnification with AF G-lenses
          I believe the Nikon 1 system to be a failure. Ugly cameras with minimal manual features and too small a sensor.
          SAMSUNG.. has iFunction… that no one cares about. AND their camera is U.G.L.Y.
          The Samsung 20MP sensor provide excellent resolution with a very light AA filter. Samsung also has some superb lenses. The 30mm pancake, 60mm macro and the incredibly superb 85mm. The Samsung 60mm and 85mm are the only mirrorless lenses the have mechanically linked focus rings, not focus by wire. As for their camera being ugly, you are the first I have heard say that about the NX1000/NX210/NX20. U.G.L.Y. is the Pentax K-01.
          PENTAX doesn’t really have much to offer either, which is why they’re in the same situation.
          Pentax has a good range of DSLR cameras. They are only just entering the mirrorless system.

            Oh wow didn’t realize SONY lenses rated so low.

            On Samsung: with the exception of nx210 their cameras look kind-of cheap and plastic. Personally I want something more solid and with less gimmicks like Scene Modes and “Smart Filters”. I do agree with you on image quality and, after some research, on lenses.

          • Sahaja

            Samsung had the right idea when they imitated the iPad in the design of their Galaxy Tab. Samsung should now copy something like the design of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 for their NX cameras.

          • James

            Samsung is rumoured to be releasing a flagship NX1 this year so it should answer your desire for a very high quality body.
            Personally a hope both Samsung NX and Sony NEX do well as competition benefits as all and leads to innovation.

  • Gex

    I’m sure there will be no shortages on the NX20. No one’s going to buy it, so there will be plenty on the shelves…

    • The Fez

      Maybe not in America, but rest of the world would disagree. If Samsung was not selling cameras, they sure would not be designing and selling new models.

      • Gex

        Well, I’m not in the US and I surely won’t buy one. The only samsungs I’ve seen people with are compacts, or even the NX100 when its price fell faster than a piano thrown off the top of a 10 floor building

    Nice of Samsung to deign to put one of their cameras into actual stores. Two years too late and $200 too high.

    • Gjim

      Hah JB. I said the same thing before reading your comment. When I saw the price of these I also thought all three are at least $200 too expensive.

  • Gjim

    All three of these cameras are at least $200 too expensive. Almost no one will be buying these. And that cheapest one looks unbelievably cheap. If they can’t make money off it priced at $399 something is very wrong and Samsung should just forget about making cameras.
