    NX30 looks good. Essentially it's NX300 with tilting 2.36M dots EVF, external mic input, fully articulated touch-sensitive screen which is supposedly 70% brighter than that of NX20, wireless flash sync and HSS (or FP sync in Olympus parlance).


    Samsung also announced NX 16-50 f/2.0-2.8 (!!!) lens with OIS and new 'ultra-precise' focusing motor. Which suddenly makes NX series one of the more interesting mirrorless systems on the market...

    I love that tilting eyepiece as well.

    It's good on the GX7 and I'm sure it'll be great here.
  4. Now that's a kit lens! Way to go Samsung!

    I just noticed that the new lens is weather-sealed while the new camera is not. I think it's a not-so-subtle hint that we can reasonably expect a weather-proof Samsung NX body in the future.

    yowza, that lens is a dream lens for me! 16/2 on APSC should give some proper shallow DOF despite the wide angle, and weather sealing is great to have on a travel camera. Bring on the weather sealed body!

    The lens does look fairly huge though, I wouldn't mind if they lopped off everything from 17mm onwards and just made it a 16/2 prime:wink:but I gotta admit, at that focal length / aperture range, it's a very strong statement about Samsung's intentions!

    I'm glad to see the swivel screen on the body. I gotta admit, the 16-50 f2-2.8 lens is going to open some eyes, especially if it is optically great.

    I'll be waiting for the first real reviews on that "S" lens...and assuming they are good, it will be on my NX20 soon. Glad I held off on the 12-24mm.
