Samsung NX series
From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
The Samsung NX series was a series of APS-C mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (with the exception of Samsung NX mini that sports a 1-inch sensor) with Samsung NX lens mounts from Samsung Electronics, introduced in 2010.
The APS-C image sensors have a 1.54× crop factor. Optical image stabilization is featured on some of the lenses, indicated by an "OIS" marking. Automatic focusing on NX lenses is handled by a dedicated electric motor built into the lens.

As of February 2015, there are 15 Samsung lenses available. As of February 2015, the NX-mount is supported by at least one additional manufacturer: Samyang Optics, which only delivers lenses without autofocus / image stabilization.
Current Status of NX series
An official announcement from Samsung has never emerged, detailing the current status of the NX brand. It is widely known that Samsung pulled their camera business out of all major markets. This leads to speculation that NX has been abandoned by Samsung. No future development is anticipated.
All engineering imaging resources that were previously assigned to the Samsung NX line of cameras remain aligned with the Samsung mobile camera division.
