UPDTAED-> Some more Samsung NX-10 details…

Apparently the Samsung NX-10 with 18-55mm will cost 700 Euro or $800. That’s a lot cheaper than the Panasonic GH1 and I don’t know if we should expect a GH1 price drop soon (we already had a -$250 price drop in amazon US)
In the meanwhile dpreview posted some new NX-10 images. Try to compare it with the images taken with the Olympus E-P1. Let me know what your first impressions are!

Where does the NX-10 lack against the Panasonic ?

It has no 50/60p and no 1080 recording.
Sound is mono only.
AF doesn’t work in video mode. UPDATE: This is wrong, AF works!
No swivel LCD.
And no video optimazied lenses.

P.S.: The Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 OIS Micro Four Thirds Lens is in Stock at amazon.
