I just got one of these and it's a fantastic deal! I already have an NX100 and a couple of NX lenses so this was a no brainer to upgrade to.

It came in an original sealed box, though since it's originally Korean market the 5V adapter plug won't fit a North American power socket (which you can fix by grabbing a cheap travel adapter, or potentially use another USB charging source if it has enough capacity).

Best part for me? Comes with a copy of Lightroom 5, which I was totally not expecting! I made the decision not to upgrade since I already have version 4 and my hardware is not quite good enough to run version 6. However, that meant having to use the DNG converter for my 70D which was getting to be tedious.

So very pleased overall. :)

I have the same camera (nx300) with the kit lens (20-50mm). The picture quality is great and it is pretty small / light to carry around. I bought mine last year and at that time, it came with lightroom 4 :(... I also bought a couple adapters for it - FD to nx and EF to nx so that I can use it with my other lenses :D

I just bought an nx300 on the cheap on Amazon as a travel camera. How well do the adapters work on an EF lens?

Works pretty good. I couple it with my 8mm rokinon, 50mm and even 70-200 :D... Just be careful with you are coupling it with big / heavy lens ... am not sure how stong the lens mount is and when I do that, I usually hold the lens instead of the body (I don't let the lens hangs from the camera)

Everything is manual and there is no aperture control so you will be shooting wide open. That was a deal breaker for me.

FD lenses (and other manual lenses) work great though if you have the patience. :)
