There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

Engadget Summary

The Samsung NX1000 boasts most of the functionality of the higher-end NX210, including a 20-megapixel sensor and Wi-Fi, for a fraction of that camera's price. While the NX1000 is a good camera, and takes sharp photos and good HD video -- and should be your top choice if you want an interchangeable-lens compact that includes Wi-Fi -- the gdgt Must-have Sony NEX-5N is faster, has a better selection of available lenses, and sells for about the same price as the NX1000.
