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.

Olympus E-P1 is the most popular camera in Japan (but not the most sold)

The japanese very popular website DC.watch.impress asked their readers to vote the best camera of the year. These are the results:

1. E-P1
2. 7D
3. K-7
4. GF1
5. K-x
6. D3s
7. GXR
8. E-P2
9. D300s
10. GH1

But real japanese sales rankings do show a different story. Take a look at the November 2009 sales rankings: http://bcnranking.jp/category/subcategory_0008_month.html.

Interesting or not? It seems that a lot of people like the “concept” of MicroFourThirds cameras but not so many of them are buying it…
