Summary: The most interesting part of the camera market right now lies right in between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR. Basically, the former category is being eaten alive by ever-improving smartphone cameras, and the latter is a fairly mature market without a lot of drastic change. So companies like Sony, Panasonic, and Olympus have developed the NEX line and the Micro Four Thirds standard, bringing excellent image quality to smaller cameras with smaller price tags.
Pros: Excellent image and video quality, Useful interface and controls, Cool Wi-Fi features
Cons: Expensive, Unremarkable kit lens, Some performance quirks
Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung NX20 is an excellent camera. Still quality is superb and movies are very good. It’s a good choice for both aim-and-forgetters and those who tweak every image to the nth degrees. However, avoid the high-speed burst mode or you may have to do a reboot. So forget the speeding bullets, stick to more leisurely action and you’ll be in fine shape.
Pros: Top notch stills and quality videos, Excellent iFunction lens with OIS, Superior vari-angle screen
Cons: Forget high-speed burst mode, Occasional focusing issues, Noisy at high ISOs
Excerpt: Since the beginning of the digital imaging revolution, a new generation of photographers has come of age using point and shoot cameras. Amateur shutterbugs have grown progressively more sophisticated over those twenty odd years, but they still want easy to use cameras that produce excellent images with very little effort on the part of the shooter.

Summary: Samsung's NX20 interchangeable lens camera is smaller than a digital SLR, but it offers a similar level of functionality. It has built-in features such as an EVF and a flash, so that you don't have to go hunting for accessories, but most importantly, it has the ability to capture very clear and vibrant images with its 20-megapixel sensor.
Pros: Built-in EVF and flash, Excellent image clarity, Direct Wi-Fi connection to smartphones using free app
Cons: Some Wi-Fi features can be confusing to use, Burst mode is limited, EVF's colours not great

Don’t buy this camera if:, You need a wide range of compatible lenses (there are only nine so far)., You shoot wildlife. (No really long telephoto lenses are available.), You require a weatherproof camera.
Excerpt: In today’s connected world that might prick up a few ears: it’s one of the areas that most big camera brands have failed to integrate well, or that otherwise tends to be sold as an extra add-on in some more recent models.
Pros: Great image quality for such high-resolution, classic design, enough lenses to tae on the competition, vari-angle screen, built-in SVGA-resolution EVF
Cons: Inconsistent white balance, colours can lack punch, processing takes too long per file, burst mode "Processing" lock out
Conclusion: Samsung NX 20 mm f/2.8 to zdecydowanie udany obiektyw. Nie jest oczywiście idealny, można doszukać się różnego rodzaju mankamentów i wad optycznych, jednak ich poziom jest niewielki, zwłaszcza jeśli weźmiemy, że oceniamy obiektyw będący częścią całkowicie amatorskiego systemu. Wysoka rozdzielczość optyczna, niemal całkowity brak dystorsji, winietowania oraz stosunkowo niewielki poziom aberracji chromatycznej to zdecydowane zalety tego obiektywu.
Pros: bardzo wysoka ostrość obrazu w zakresie przysłon f5.6–f/8, stosunkowo niewielki spadek ostrości przy pełnym otworze przysłony, bardzo mały spadek ostrości na brzegach kadru, niemal zerowy poziom dystorsji, praktycznie brak winietowania, dobre zachowanie pod światło, kompaktowe rozmiary
Cons: niewielka jasność obiektywu, sporadycznie pojawiająca się aberracja chromatyczna na brzegach kadru, umiarkowana koma przy pełnym otworze przysłony, notorycznie odpadający dekielek przedni
