    NX300 does have a (very good) focus peaking system.

    And you can choose white, red, or green for the focus peaking.

    Only NX300? What about the NX20 or NX10?

    Was stated in another thread that the NX20 did not have it, I would imagine that means the 10 didn't either.

    Yes you are right. I thought that Samsung released some sort of firmware upgrade for this feature, but obviously I'm wrong. Well the new NX30 will surely have it.

    As well as a proper grip on it. The NX20 has sort of an NX300 type, curved grip/hump. The NX30 is more Sony A7 like with its grip.

    I think I'll go for a NX10 for larger/heavier lenses like the 18-200 because I can get a good price for a used one. Then wait for the new samsungs or for the price of the NX30 to drop. I will then have two bodies; one with kit or UW lens - 12-24, and onother with zoom or superzoom and still go lightweight.

    So, were you looking at replacing your Micro 4/3 kit, or doubling up with two systems? I've been trying to keep them from overlapping by keeping the NX300 with the two 20mm and 30mm pancake primes, and keeping my Micro 4/3 kit with a few zooms and my favourite primes.

    There's a few Samsung lenses that I am interested in (12-24mm, 45mm, and the new 16-50mm) but they would open up larger questions of how I want to balance the two systems.

    To be honest I am really in a mess for decisions because I have the M1 and epl5 and E-30 with a complete set of 4/3 and m4/3 lenses. I just bought the M1 mainly to use the 4/3 pro lenses I have with it. The problem, very big problem!!!, is I don't have many occasions to shoot so the M1 will not used if not for summer shots or some rare weekend hikes. Its a pity to keep such an expensive kit only for those occasions so I'm thinking selling my M1 and Epl5 with some lenses and use only NX, waiting for the new M10 that should be better than my epl5.
    I think that it could be right to keep E-30 (wouldn't sell it for much so better keeping it) and a M10 (maybe used M5) with my Zuiko and mZuiko lenses but not primes; samsung for my everyday shots and maybe my main system because now for my needs it suites fine. I have all I need and much more to be honest. I have NX 20-50; 12-24 (I love UW); 18-200 and will get the 60 macro but want to now how the IQ is on this lens. Here there is a 50% discount on these lenses so they are really affordable so I can get the 60 new at 299 euros and the 30 at 174 euros.
    Must make up a decision.
