Samsung NX210 and NX20 now available, NX1000 to ship in June for $700

We already had a fairly good idea of pricing for Samsung’s trio of NX cameras, but until the company’s US arm released figures of its own, we withheld hope that the entry-level NX1000 would break the critical $600 barrier. Sadly, that’s not the case — that curvy flavor will retail for $700 in white, black or pink finishes come June, with a 20-50mm kit lens in tow. Timing couldn’t be more unfortunate for Samsung’s NX line, considering that Sony upped the stakes earlier today with its NEX-F3, the successor to the wildly-popular NEX-C3, which is priced to sell at $600 with an 18-55mm kit lens. That camera’s 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor is the same physical size as what you’ll find on the NX1000, NX210 and NX20, but Samsung’s version ups the resolution to 20.3MP. Still, seasoned shooters know that megapixel count isn’t a critical spec, making that extra 100 bucks a hard swallow for would-be NX1000 owners. Samsung’s other mirrorless models, the NX210 and NX20, are available now for $1,100 and $900, respectively, so if you’re in the market for an upgrade, those cameras may be worth considering.
