    Samsung NX10 shows up on Ebay

    Kind of pricey. I thought the idea of mirror-less cameras was to perhaps lower cost? No mirror, mechanism, prism (expensive part) etc?

    I made 3 offers- $345, $350 and $355. All declined instantly.

    With these kind of prices (as indicated from the couple of eBay listings), DSLR prices are attractive, very attractive.

    I reviewed the e-bay offer quickly. I think the asking price of $1049 is without a lens. I guess Samsung is not in a big rush to capture the mirrorless market.

    This is just a case of someone trying to get top dollar by being the first on the bay, I would venture that Samsung retail is not $1049 without a lens.

    No, I think it includes the 18-55mm;

    "This is the product with 18-55 mm lenses and 2 Giga memory altogether.

    this is a brand new product with factory sealed."

    I really think $350 is a very reasonable price for this camera.

    Sounds a bit low given the $1000+ introductory prices of the Panasonic and Olympus gear. Comparing it to an entry-level DSLR, $699 would be good.

    That is why.

    Reason I favor the G1 is for its NMOS sensor (UV and IR sensitivity without the internal cut filter).

    The Nx is just a garden variety CMOS. Nothing special.
