Further confirming the slow, painful demise of Samsung cameras, both Adorama and Best Buy have almost every Samsung NX lens listed at ‘closeout’ prices, including some third party glass.
Later rumors said the reason for Samsung’s death was a Nikon buyout, but follow-up statements from multiple parties refuted that rumor, with Samsung stating ‘reports that Nikon is allegedly buying our NX technology are not true.’
No further announcements have been made, on the matter, but it’s hard to say it’s anything but down hill from here.
That said, if you’re a Samsung user who doesn’t mind picking up gear that very likely won’t be supported a couple years from now, now’s the time to pick up some cheap glass from Adorama and Best Buy. It’s likely we’ll see a similar trend at B&H in the very near future.
