    WOW!!!! So, who saw that coming? Great job of dPreview touting Samsung products as yearly award winners last week! This is something I guess that can happen when you buy cameras and lenses at inflated prices from...a microwave oven and smartphone maker...

    That's a shame. That nx1 seemed like a fantastic bit of kit. That 50-150 f2.8 lens is something I'd like Nikon to make.

    If you invested heavily here you'd be badly put out

    This is really surprising to me....I mean WTH!!!! Samsung is just abandoning their NX series, entirely? And after all that smack-talking they did about how they were "Developing" the lenses for the NX-1? Ohhhhh, man, if I had bought an NX-1 and suddenly found out I was the owner of a now-orphaned, one-model camera series, I would be supremely pissed off!

    It's true that Samsung's very own camera site has not been updated in months... Home

    I still want to hear/read confirmation of this from a larger source, like c-Net or dPreview,etc..

    Read yesterday that the rumour is just that. Hopefully the case for buyers that exist and to see the interesting way Samsung push the specs

    Well someone else can feel like Canon FD owners, Olympus 4/3 owners, and real metal camera owners everywhere. I digress!

    Why Olympus ? Panasonic hasnt yet said they'll leave the 4/3 system behind.

    Panasonic and Olympus now make micro 4/3 cameras. 4/3 is a different mount, same size sensor

    Looks like I will need to buy a Nikon that I can mount my AIS lenses on, and slowly build up with AF lenses. Really hate to put more money into the Olympus system with my body being 7 years old.

    Oooh that one !

    Yeah, ok.

    Olympus is now also discussing leaving MFT as well, though. In fact leaving the whole photography market.

    Yes, it is really sad because they have some really nice glass.
