How do you find the NX system? They seem a little caught in no mans land for most people?

I like it a lot.  I think Sony has the more responsive bodies, but controls are somewhat terrible. The NX cameras have more direct controls like an SLR.  Sensor wise, the early 14.6 MP sensor models are not so great, but the new 20 MP models have much better high ISO performance, but only in RAW.  JPEG is great at low ISO, but not good at high ISO.

So I want to like the Sony's because they are compact and fairly good looking.  The 10-18 and 16-50 are nice looking lenses, the grip and form factor of the 6 and 7 are very nice, but it seems like the only great lenses are the 24mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.8 (I am sure the 35mm f/1.8 will be nice too).

As primarily a still shooter, who shoots RAW, I like the Samsung a lot.  I think they need a little help from marketing, and maybe a clear direction of where they are going.
