jpr2: alas - yest another Samsung WITHOUT eye-level VF = DOA, unfortunately :( !! which is a great, great pity
The optional finder is the optical viewfinder OVF-1, per a Samsung announcement in the UK -
The OVF-1 slides in to the hot shoe, and looks like most other units. I found some available on eBay for the EX1.
derfla1949: For me, the specs read ok.The major remaining question is the quality of the lens.For 500+X bucks it had better be very, very good.
My NX100 dowloads show both time and date, not sure what you have set to prevent both.
