    Seems like a good deal for that much capability.

      Possible, the main problem remains here, 1/4000th only, no EVF. I await Sony’s new A-7000 or what ever the name will be. I want a camera with 1/8000, even an electronic shutter up to 1/16000 would be nice. 1/4000 is not fast enough, I am often stuck with the NEX-7 at 1/4000th.

        A7000 should be interesting. Problem with sony is lenses. Samsung doesnt have a huge amount of lenses either. But what they do have is mostly fairly priced and very highly rated by reviewers.

        Maximum shutter speed is 1/6000, not 1/4000, you are probably wrong about this. And still don´t know about EVF. Let´s wait and see.

    no vf = not interested

    I hate it that Samsung doesn’t sell its low-end cameras as body-only. I probably would have purchased one or two of them by now but I don’t want the bundled lenses. 🙁

    • SH*T666

      The bundled collapsible lenses are perfect for a small mirrorless camera like this. If you want to use big third party lenses, go for the NX1 instead.

      • MonkeySpanner

        He probably means that he already is set for lenses. meaning he doesn’t want to purchase more lenses, just a newer body.

      • mclaren777

        I want to select the lenses myself – not have Samsung decide for me. For instance, I want the 16mm, 30mm, and 45mm lenses. I have no decide to own any of Samsung’s zoom lenses and I will be really disappointed if the NX500 isn’t available by itself.

        • SH*T666

          Yes, you are right if you only want fixed focal lenses, but I don´t think a body only option is going to be much cheaper, maybe only $100 and that zoom lens is far from useless. Anyway, agree with you: any ILC maker should also offer body only option.
