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 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.
