Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung GX-20 is well-priced and well-put-together. It is an attractive, solid unit, both in terms of its build as well as its performance, and it is unlikely to disappoint. Highly recommended. * Tested with the Samsung 18-55mm lens
Summary: The GX-20 can be viewed as the fruit of a successful manufacturing partnership. Samsung’s electronics expertise has been coupled with Pentax’s long-standing photographic heritage to produce a camera that manages to meet a high specification while not breaking the bank.
Summary: The tweaks and reworked menus can’t hide the fact that the GX20 is basically the same as the Pentax K20D. But the K20D benefi ts from the Pentax brand cachet and has a couple of useful features missing here, which leaves the GX20 in a kind of no-man’s-land.
