well it certainly looks like they hit the ground running with the nx1...
Right now, Samsung is eating everyone's lunch in the TV market.
Given their hold on the phone market, it makes you wonder about if Samsung applies itself properly to the digital camera market (especially the ILC/DSLR segment), what will the company achieve?
Will Samsung start to eat everyone's lunch there?
After their debut of the NX-1, maybe it is Samsung that Canon and Nikon need to be afraid of and not Sony.
The question is ... Why bother? Its a declining market, a share of a ever smaller pie does not justify spending billions to develop new products and lenses.
Maybe their market forecast is different from Sony's
Why did Sony buy Minolta? Anyway...
Maybe Samsung has a vision of people having a "Samsung Household."
Consider that Samsung also provide more of the other appliances you see in a house - fridge, dishwasher - why wouldn't they also want to offer a serious digital camera?
what they really need is to partner up with a top shelf glass name like sony did with zeiss
