consider the 16-50 pancake

FWIW, I have been complaining that Samsung hasn't released something in between (in terms of price and size/weight, but mainly size/weight) the 18-55 and the 16-50 f/2-f/2.8. I have been eyeing the Fuji X-E1 with 18-55 f/2.8-f/4 as an "everyday zoom" for weeks.

I'm probably going to get the upcoming nx 16-50 pancake zoom to make my NX20 a carry everywhere camera. I like the idea of GX1 mk II a lot, but I don't think it offers much benefit over NX body with the pancake (if you already have an NX body). Especially when you can also carry a fast pancake (like the 30/2) if you need a faster lens.

For me, the 550g GX1 mkII would be extra weight in my camera bag. Much more than the 16-50 pancake
