Out of those - k-30 of course. Make sure you get the kit with WR lens though if you want weather-sealing of the camera.

Body only can be had for as low as $470 new on amazon. Even with kit, lower than that on ebay.

But I would get it with 18-135 instead .

If going for 2-lens kit for higher quality, it makes sense to spring up for 16-50/2.8 and 50-135/2.8 pair. Much more expensive, but different level of abilities.

Thanx peevee1, I was that sure too until last week, when I found NX300 results during my research, that´s why I started this post, because this choice its not that simple. Its quite a amazing job what Samsung did with this camera, I really would like to see some comparison shots, like the ones we can download here at DPREVIEW, but they seems decided not to review this unit. Did you experienced one of those two? About the lenses, I´m aware about what you said, but the budget is really strict here.

Once again, thanx.

Forget about Samsung, especially with 20-50 - its range is totally inadequate even for a cheapest kit lens (no reasonable landscape and groupshot wide) and it is not even stabilized - it's a waste of money and space.
