First Impression on NX300 (unpacked)

So, the NX300 is here and unpacked and first shots made

Quick first impression:

-> handling of the new body is an improved compared to the NX200/NX210 as you can hold it more comfortably.

-> The battery of the NX200 works in the NX300 having same size, but the external NX200 charger does not work with the BP1130

-> The touch screen feels responsive and the touch AF is nice to work with, and it at least seems to be fast with the 18-55

-> the 18-55 although being Version III as the one that came with the NX20 is the first OiS Kit where I do not have that resistance on the zoom ring at 40mm focal length.

-> the ISO6400 OOC JPEG  shots with low Noise reduction setup in the FW look usable on the OLED Screen, but I haven't loaded them to my PC. At least the first impression in IQ is solid

-> Performance seems to be better, no huge delay, no "processing" although the preview image is staying on for a short while before you can reuse it after the 8fps

-> Raw file size is 27MB per image !!!!!

More to come

EDIT: the OS running on the NX300 seems to be some LINUX version as it displays some license terms for OpenSource so its most likely Tizen running on it as suspected.
