    Just chatted with Vinil Kumar, sales person at Samsung US online store. He said:

    "Don't believe the rumors! Samsung ist not closing down its complete camera division. Samsung will provide further support for NX1 buyers."

    You can get a great lens setup if you can live without AF. I'm thinking of getting the NX1 and a Samsung wide for steadicam and seeing how AF does; but for everything else, I'm really happy with my Nikkor primes, some of them I've shot with for 15 years.
    Favorites for a budget setup:
    85mm 1.8 Af is gorgeous, under $300; Series E 100mm 2.8, under $100 and really really nice budget lens… 28mm AIS is legendary, under $300 and a great "normal" lens on APS-C/super 35. Add any version of the 50mm 1.8 for next to nothing and maybe a Rokinon wide if you need something in the 12-14mm range. I use the 28-70 2.8 often when I need a zoom for tight spaces or fast gigs, that's more in the $700 and up range though. And you can get an old beater push-pull 80-200 2.8 for a couple hundred these days - I skip it when I can use the 85 or 100, but for really long shots on APS-C, it's got a sexy look, but having rails and a lens support is mandatory. The 180mm 2.8 AF is also a superb lens and affordable if you really need a long lens and don't want to use the giant zoom. The 300mm F4 AF is a killer and usually well under a grand if you need to go crazy long, too.

    Hi Manilo,
    Why don't you just buy a nx1 with a long zoom and a macro lens?
    It depends on what you plan to use it for, but the 18-200 is a versatile lens, especially for video, even if the aperture is not fixed, then you can use the macro samsung lens or get a sigma or nikon 105mm macro with an adapter...
    I personnally use sigma 18-35, 35 and 105 macro for 90% of my work for both stills and video when I don't need autofocus. I also have the small 45mm (+-70mm eq.) wich is a fantastic gem for its price. !

    Warning: I'm procrastinating on a project... so I'm sort of in a bad mood and this is a bit of a defensive rant, like a father protecting his son or something overly emotional like that.  Sorry in advance
    1) The overall image quality of the NX1 is far superior to the video on the A7R II. No aliasing or moire, much more detail and better highlight rolloff.  Also, my NX1 doesn't start to melt after 7 minutes or recording. Apart from that, in my opinion, S-LOG on a DSLR isn't a priority. It's super hard to get the grade right, unless you're a professional colorist. And if you have the budget to hire a professional colorist, why are you shooting on the A7R II and not a proper camera like the Alexa or the Amira? (The only exception I can think of is if you need a more nimble camera for drone or portable use. Then having LOG would help a professional colorist grade the camera to match their A-camera more accurately.) Colors straight out of the NX1 look great. If you're not a professional colorist, good luck getting your S-LOG skin tones to look right. 
    2) I don't get why you're saying Full-Frame is better.  Canon C300 is S35. Sony F55 is S35. Alexa / Amira is S35.  Are you saying A7R II is better than those because it's FF?
    3) You can mount PL glass on the NX1.  You can mount all of the new Zeiss Milvus ZF lenses on the NX1. You can mount pretty much anything you want on the NX1, unless you're looking for an electronic connection for EF lenses (though, they make manual aperture adaptors for EF glass). Novoflex makes a plethora of incredible adapters for the NX mount
    4) I've had an extremely different experience shooting AF on Sony vs. Samsung.  In stills, using my 16-50 ED OIS f/2.0-2.8 lens... Samsung is amongst the fastest AF I've ever used. After all, this lens did win zoom lens of the year. And if we're talking AF while in video mode... not even Canon's Dual Pixel AF holds a candle to the AF capabilities of the NX1.  Sony is leagues beneath both of Canon and Samsung in AF video. 
    5) I do miss my Speedboosters. Loved that extra stop of light.  Though, I used them on M4/3 to get a S35 look.  Now that I have an APS-C sensor, I don't need it. It would be nice to have a Speedbooster for the occasional FF-look though.
    6) What 3rd party lenses are you missing? Novoflex - Adapters for Samsung NX
