It's not about offering those ISO levels. It's about making them usable. One can post process and right shift a stop from 3200 to 6400, for example.

It's about making those levels usable in the camera and Samsung is well behind even some other manufacturers' compacts in that respect. Not to mention, jpeg output is fairly horrendous at ISO3200 in the NX series.

Samsung has had some years to get it sorted, but have not. For example, look at their old dSLR line that was shared with Pentax up to the K7. As early as 1600 there was not only a lot of noise, but not a pleasing type of it. Then they cancelled the partnership with Samsung and resolved those problems by using a Sony sensor in the K5, creating one of the top cams for DR and high-ISO output. That continues to this day with the K01 and K30.

So it's not about the ISO, it's about whether or not it's usable.

In Sony, very well usable. Samsung is just simply steps behind, that's all.
