Did the ex1 have a noise reduction feature? If not, I hope this one does.

It does, and it's horrible: you can't change the NR settings, so the jpegs always contain the factory standard amount, aka way too much and not applied as well as LR can do. I really hope the EX2 will allow you to set the NR to any level you want, including off.

Panasonic was the same way for many many years.

cool! Looks like a really high quality camera, I like that it has an ND filter and a proper grip.
I've been wondering about how the EX2F compares to the RX100 in terms of DOF and low light abilities.
The Sony RX100's lens is, in real terms, 10,4mm at wide angle, where it has an aperture of 10,4/1,8=5,77mm. The EX2F has 5,2mm/1,4=3,7mm, so at wide angle, the Sony seems to have the advantage in terms of DOF. The slightly slower lens should mean slightly higher ISO's but you'd expect the larger sensor to handle that well. Sony probably wins.
At the Samsung's maximum tele of 80mm equivalent, the Samsung is at 17,2/2,7=6,37mm, whereas the Sony is at 29,8/4,5=6,6mm, so that's only a marginal difference in real aperture size. The smaller size of the EX2F's sensor (making any non-focused light beams, aka unsharpness, occupy a greater part of the sensor) might actually mean the EX2F could be capable of shallower DOF than the Sony. I don't know how big the difference between the two cameras is in terms of noise performance, but the 1,5stop advantage that the EX2F has, should ensure at least competitive results. So despite the much smaller sensor, that's a draw, both in terms of DOF and low light.
Seems keeping the sensor small and the lens very fast can keep a camera pretty close to the larger sensor of the RX100, at tele at least. At wide angle, the fastness of the RX100 should make it the undisputed king of low light compacts.

EX2F has been added to the camerasize website:
Compact Camera Meter
It doesn't seem to really be pocketable, which is a big minus as far as I'm concerned (not pocketable + no EVF/OVF means I think their Samsung NX lineup make more sense for most people). Or a G1X. Or a RX100.

If it's the same size as the EX1, I'd say it's easily jacket pocketable, and it can be worn in pants with pockets on the sides (like walking pants or cargo pants), but not in the regular pockets of regular jeans. I'd like it to be thinner too, but the mix of the EX1's qualities was so perfect for me that I decided I could live with the slight compromise in size. I do wish it had a self opening lens cap though, because it saves space and more importantly, it saves time when you get the camera out of your pocket.
