Others have already responded to this, but just take a look at this Viking79's feature request thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53145467 to get an idea for the kind of things that NX1 needs to be "serious".

Samsung needs to have a camera, that is utterly reliable and responsive in ways, that we've learned to have our DSLR's. No lag, no waiting for buffer to clear, AF-lock button, good mechanical quality, weather sealing, etc etc. There's a lot of basic features that the Samsung cameras don't offer that you can get from a very cheap DSLR (like no lag and better AF features). For example, Olympus' u43 E-M1 offers top of the line AF, weather sealing, very little lag, a lot of customisabilty, etc.

Don't get me wrong, there's a lot that I love in Samsung NX (as I guess most people here know), but I also see room for improvement. I think Samsung should go all out in the way of Fuji, Olympus and recently Sony in how they provide features for their cameras. I wish Samsung won't hold back, when they introduce the NX1. I don't want it to be a "simple" camera, I want it to have everything that an enthusiast or a pro would want.
