Cameraholic Digest: Samsung NX200 review at dpreview & ORB hunting & lots more

And now time for a new edition of the Cameraholic Digest, an experimental new approach to rounding up some of the latest happenings.

Samsung NX200 gets the dpreview review
We start with today's Talking Points Memo: Samsung fans have been encouraging dpreview aggressively (a half-full way of saying complaining non-stop) to publish a review of the latest Samsung NX mirrorless cameras. Today their wish was granted as dpreview published a 20-page review of the Samsung NX200. As usual, we won't spill the review-beans here, but if you are in a hurry or your battery is running out, you can jump to the conclusions before jumping to conclusions :)
