Re: OK Mr Samsung show me the APS-C

Sounds like a winner... except for the part where fast 24-70mm equivalent APS-C lenses are as long as my EX1 is wide, and just as heavy. And as it's already been said, if you're happy with a normal prime then a NX-series with the 30/2 would be more than a good enough replacement.

As a general rule of thumb, I believe a good way to keep expectations for a fixed-lens camera reasonable is to grab any ILC kit, then reduce every dimension by 10% since you don't need to deal with mounts and associated tolerances. It's still a fairly optimistic rule---I don't think the RX1 is 10% smaller in every direction than a Leica M9 with a 35mm Summicron, though there's issues like AF to work out---but it tends to work somewhat well in a "rough estimate" kind of way.
