Good to see some action from Samsung. Let's have some real cameras next, with a viewfinder...

Certainly a nice looking camera.
Is 3D very popular now? Here in China, they sell the TVs but I don't know anyone who has one or is interested. I can be a bit out of the loop here sometimes.

Not so sure "comeback" is the correct word (when were they out in front?)
Anyways, I still believe they are a sleeper - with an APS-C sensor and a good set of base lenses (to include their phenomenal 85mm ƒ1.4) they're poised - just need to move

Totally love the look of that body... man, that would look stunning with a legacy lens! I hope Sony is paying attention!!
In contrast, their native lens looks so out of place... reminds me of a knob from a scuba tank regulator

Despite a few oddities like huge raw files and resultant write times, the previous NX200 model has really quite impressed me. I found one second-hand late last year for only $300 including the wonderful little 30/2 pancake lens, and then a 20/2.8 pancake for another $100. The build quality and materials (except for the cheapo battery door) is excellent, the buttons and dials have a wonderful high quality feel to them, and the OLED screen, graphics and menus are up there with the best that I have encountered. The 20MP sensor is not a low light specialist but it gives a similarly natural looking raw output that I liked so much about my old Canon 50D.
If I wanted to expand much further into the system I think that it would be with the larger NX20 body, but the NX200 + the two pancakes are plenty for me at the moment. It's definitely a system that I am keeping my eye on, but it just seems so mysterious!
EDIT: OMG! I just saw that the NX300 has a higher resolution 3.3" tilting touchscreen. Bliss!

At least it's the first good step to make 3D photography and cinematography available for the consumer. Oh, and it got the best screen of all CSCs. But other than that ... can't really understand why this camera stands out from the crowd. Personally, I like the design of the NEX-7 much better than this one.
