yeah, it's a good idea.

some of the models didn't implement it properly though, and it became quite irritating, i remember reading complaints about it. can't remember why though.

anyway, it has a cropped sensor like many dslrs...nt 4/3... i wud think this wud be more of a trend for dslr development than 4/3..since it reduces size without decreasing sensor size...:)

This article could be interesting.

http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/02/mirror-less-cameras-the-death-of-dslrs/

Samsung probably will not be able to replace any of the big boys, but it could serve as a catalyst along with the 4/3s forcing the Nikons, Canons, Pentaxs, Sonys, etc to launch their own mirrorless systems. Challenge would be adapting the current lens to the new bodies which prob would have a different mount.

If the functions & IQ is similar why would I want to carry a heavier camera around ?

Imagine a small body with 2 pancake lens (hopefully 1 UWA & 1 tele) all less than 1 kg :think:

Sony is also entering the mirrorless fray. My guess is many especially the previous smaller players want to break into new playing arena with more breathing space and capacity for expansion. Pentax jumping a digital format higher.

But what does Samsung think they're doing, releasing their own camera without a decent range of lenses? I love their screens and stuff but camera kinda unconvincing lol

Those were re-branded Pentax, I think. This one is supposedly 100% developed by Samsung.
