    I'm very seriously considering purchasing an NX20. It seems to have everything I want in a relatively compact, relatively lightweight body & EVF. I also like the fact that Samsung makes its own sensor (though I wonder who is supplying the apparently very good lenses). Can any NX20 shooters tell me their thoughts on and experiences with the camera? Thanks!

    Nuskyn has an NX20, I'm sure he'll weigh in at some point. Don't think I remember anyone else here having that camera, but could be wrong...

    Interesting question about the lenses, Samsung always relied on other parties to make their interchangeable lenses (pentax, schneider kreuznach), but I've never heard of any other party making Samsung's NX lenses for them. They do have a very good reputation though.
    Come to think of it, the lens on my EX1 is of excellent quality, and I believe most of those compact camera lenses with a top-class lens maker's name are designed and produced at the camera maker, with the lens maker allowing them to use their name if it meets certain expectations.

    Thanks! That's really interesting. I guess making the optics is mostly about hiring the best engineers, installing the best grinding equipment and QC.
