No. Just having as an option an affordable flexible long zoom such as the Tamron 18-270, which is half the price of the NX 18-200 in the UK. This choice does just not exist with NX. There are times when it is nice to have one lens which covers all the options.

There are tons of choices through MF and adapters as long as you aren't dependent on AF or IS... Two things I've come to really not miss much as I've been exploring more legacy MF lenses like my recent 1.8 40mm Hexanon and a few others.

You only need to pick one popular mount adapter for USD$20~30, like Canon or Pentax and then can find all kinds of good stuff at thrift shops and flea markets if you know how to spot the right mount identifiers (PK, KA, etc.). If you're lucky, you can pick up some very nice older glass that compares quite favorably to modern stuff. I can do solid work with my 57mm 1.4 Hexanon:
