    Nikon F-mount please.
    Seriously Samsung made a good (at least on paper) camera but has no complete system as well as Sony.

    What's not complete about it? Sammy has some great lenses at good prices. Even some with unique features like the smallest fisheye. 3D 45mm f1.8. iFunctions are pretty unique. They have their own wireless ttl flash now as well. Still not a lot of 3rd party support, but some offerings there. Please elaborate.

    Saw the NX1 and was just as impressed as everyone else but the truth is that it looks like under every tree today you will find a new company making new camera.
    I would stick with companies that has been making cameras forever, what happeneds if I invest in a system and 3-4 years from now they decide they dont make enough money with their photography and stop making cameras.
    And as good as the NX1 might be if I would go mirrorless I would go with only one camera................A7!

    I strongly doubt Sammy will leave the photography arena. They have very deep pockets and lots of R & D muscle.

    Probably you are right but I personally wouldn't invest in their system even if I was ready to buy mirrorless, Sony would be my bet.

    In other words stay away from a company like Sony that doesn't have a long history making cameras and has a track record of fickle and unreliable support for what they do make. For example remember Sony's 4 color CFA? Or how about the A7 -- which may be a great camera if Sony ever figures out that cameras need lenses in order to take photos.

    I'm not suggesting that Samsung is like Nikon or Canon or Fuji who have been in the photo business for decades, but you can't offer up Sony as a stable alternative to Samsung.
