Samsung NX100, new lens leaked out

Samsung's previously alluded to NX100 camera has been confirmed by forum posts showing official press photos. The camera will be its smallest mirrorless interchangeable and slightly thinner than the Panasonic GF1 in return for being slightly wider. Also in sight at DPReview is a new 20-50mm f3.5-5.6 lens that would give it just 2.5X zoom, but a shorter footprint when the lens is attached.

Not much else is known about the NX100 beyond what's been shown so far, but it wouldn't have a built-in flash and would rely instead on a hot shoe to add it later. Samsung often prefers high resolution sensors and could give the NX100 a 14.6-megapixel APS-C sensor like its cousin the NX10.

Samsung has already issued a teaser for a major new camera that would show at Photokina, and the NX100 is the most likely candidate for the introduction. [via 1001 Noisy Cameras]

    What's with these lenses?

    f3.5-5.6? What happened to lenses that actually let some light in? Standard prime lenses used to be f1.8, short zooms f2.8. It seems that the trend is now to increase ISO capability and reduce lens speed. We end up with more noise, more depth of field, less dynamic range and less flexibility. Improvement, indeed.
