Turns out that method does not work all the time... Oh well, just going to have to wait for a proper fix...

Good question...

Am on firmware version 1 for lens - is there an update somewhere?

I don't think there are any 60mm macro firmware updates.  For some reason the lens firmware updates are really hard to find on Samsung's site, they are under the NX10.

Works perfectly on trusty NX1000, so not a lens problem.

tested that on mine and I cannot confirm that. It worked as expected.

Did you first used a Non OiS lens on the NX300 ? As my fear is that the firmware is a bit buggy and potentially only activates a menue item when the the lens attached allows that feature first.

what it demonstrates is that the FW sometime gets a non defined state(which I can confirm mine had shown as well with the peaking), that could lead to the impression that some feature cannot be enabled...and I believe I had something like that before on the NX20 as well as that depends on the Lens&Body combination as well the sequence of activation.

Please have in mind that not all lens/body combinations allow each feature to be use so you can put Software into some strange state if you use it in a way the QA guys at Samsung did not test that... and I can tell you how Software gets tested....;-)
