I have Nx20 and Nx30, too.

My own experiences are:

  • high-ISO picture quality of NX30 is indeed not much better than NX20 at ISO 800-3200. But still better! The difference is more visible at ISO 6400 and above.

Actually, I don't see a difference that has an impact in real world usage...

  • Autofocus of NX30 is *much* better in the low-light environment; both faster and more precise, and it helps to make good shots. So they are better not only because of better ISO capabilities.

AF is improved, yes, but I rarely had problems with the NX20.

  • For some reason, NX20 auto white balance was better in some cases when shooting at home (compact fluorescent lamp)

Yes I saw this, too. Maybe the camera has a slightly different color rendering.

All in all the test is nearly over for me since I am going to give my camera back... I am not really convinced by the NX30. There are improvements, but is it worth the additional money when I have a good NX20?
