A (Korean) friend of mine, who also happens to be a camera enthusiast, turned me on to this camera. Apparently, Samsung went to Schnieder for the lenses, because they wanted the best; but at the last minute, Samsung decided not to proceed with their own SLR line. Upshot: these cameras and lenses are still available new for a tiny fraction of what they're worth. <P> Does anyone know if this is true? Or anything else about these Schnieder lenses? I'm thinking about buying one of these as a kit.
