I'm still puzzling over the UGLY comments.

Let's see, 20 MP APS-C sensor, nicely rounded body with decent grip and nice big LCD.

Doesn't really look any uglier than any other camera to me. It's just a camera, as long as it functions well and feels good in the hand and makes good quality images, do the "looks" really matter that much?

I might be a bit old fashioned or something, but I have to admit I care a lot more how the images look, then what the camera looks like ... Maybe that's just me

I care for both. The way the camera handles, the way it works, the IQ, all very important, but after that the way the camera looks also has a bearing on how much I enjoy using it.

I don't like the idea of accessing the main functions via a touch screen. I'd much rather have dials. I can operate dials with my eye still on the viefinder, and I don't like to leave fingerprints on the screen (unavoidable, but keep it to a minimum). Hence I don't like the 'look' of the Samsung.
