the nx11 had a few good extras over the nx10, auto iso max and framing. but be prepared to lose the green button as a useful thing. all in all the nx11 fw is better, but losing the green button was a major let down.

To be honest I have no idea what green button does with original NX10 firmware (never tried) but with NX11 firmware it kind of resets the exposure (ie. in A-mode when you roll the aperture all the way to F22 and press green button, it goes instantly back to F2). So it works but as I said earlier I have no idea does it work as it should be

the green button always used to zero the current setting. there is no right or wrong i suppose, but i always got used to setting the aperture to say f8, then exposure compensating to my hearts content, then zero exp comp with the green button whilst holding exp comp button. the exposure compensation would zero and the aperture remained at f8. if i wanted to reset the aperture to its fastest i pressed the green button  on its own, aperture went to widest.

with the nx11 the green button resets both aperture to fastest and zeros exp comp regardless of what other buttons im holding. so my attempt to quickly zero exp comp in aperture priority mode with aperture set to f8 by holding exp comp button and then pressing green also fully opens my aperture, which i didnt want it to do. ergo makes green button a bit rubbish on nx11 fw compared to nx10.

personally, owning an nx11 and an nx10, i will leave my nx10 as is, for use as a manual camera. the nx11 is more an "automatic" version.
