Samsung NX-10 is now official - with previews too

The Samsung NX-10 is now official. Nearly one year after its development notice (time sure does fly?) at PMA 2009. The numerous "RedCrow" leaks were right, the camera comes out with a 14.6mp APS-C sensor, and a brand new lens mount (NX) with three new lenses (two zooms and a 30mm pancake). Prices and configurations have yet to be revealed.

Main Samsung NX-10 specs
+ 14.6mp CMOS sensor

+ lens information not revealed (yet?)
+ stabilization in lenses, not camera body
+ pop-up flash
+ DRIMe II Pro engine (a rather complex name)
+ 720p video (H.264)
+ 3-inch AMOLED LCD (VGA)

So now it is official, the first properly officially announced new camera in 2010. No more paper-gangsta competition for Micro Four Thirds - the NX-10 is getting real and with a larger sensor!

But where are the details on the lenses? Did Samsung forget they are launching a brand new system that most people know nothing about?
