bebopberg: Well I guess you're in no rush to post the Samsung NX20 samples. Priorities, priorities...
OK, my bad. However, the NX200 review took forever. I would just like to see things done on a FIFO basis and that doesn't always seem to be the case around here. Perhaps Samsung and others just suck at marketing compared to the bigger players. Who knows.
So how'd you do a hands-on without the camera? This is less than transparent.
Not really. Shouldn't dpreview provide neutral advice? Relegating companies with smaller market share to the back of the queue demonstrates editorial bias.

keepreal: I do not believe any mirrorless camera is ideal for serious photography not even as a second camera. My ideal would at worst be no bigger than or heavier than a Leica M3 with a good range of compact, light weight lenses including a 12-24mm equivalent that is not severely distorted when you use RAW. Electronic viewfinders appear to suffer from problems in certain conditions, so I insist upon an optical one approaching Leica quality. In spite of my reservations about EVF the NEX-7 might have been of some interest but for the hugely inflated price.
The idea of holding a camera away from your body to peer at a LCD screen on the back obliterated by bright sunlight, compose the image properly, hold the camera steady with your arm or arms away from your body is a joke.
Micro-miniaturisation of electronic circuits has not led to compact DSLRs like it could, just large heavy models with many useless features unnecessary complexity and bloated prices. The only winners are the manufacturers.
+1 to that. Sometimes I think Japanese manufacturers design their ergonomics around teenage girls hands. Hopefully we will see some serious attempts at full-size mirrorless, a bit bigger than the NEX-7 even.
