It probably just is not fashionable or even thought about. It will be rarely mentioned as a choice in the other forums. The LX7 has also been heavily discounted in the US also to be fair.

I agree.

The problem with these massive price reductions is they can leave a very sour taste in the mouths of those who have bought the camera at full or even discount prices.

I agree, I like the Samsung cameras, but they need to do something to help resale price or not have them drop as fast.

I think the problem with Samsung they market and support all their cameras as if they are cheap and cheerful compacts and just do not have the wherewithal to interact with the more serious camera community.

Exactly, treating like general consumer electronics.

The fact that the lens software is still buried in the NX10 support page speaks volumes. Also they are making massive amounts of money and destroying Apple so it is probably no real worry to them.

To be fair in the last few days they have since fixed this.  They now have the Samsung 85 and 30mm firmware updates on the newest camera page so you don't have to go dig for them.  On my website I was just putting links to the latest versions of the firmwares in one spot so people could find them  I guess I don't have to do that any more, I will still do a table of latest firmware version for lens and body.


Rough draft of what I had started.
