GX20 prices

Does anyone have any idea what the Korean retail price of the Samsung GX20 camera will be?
My mother is going to Korea in March, so I am wondering whether my money will go further there.

Rather hard to tell, since all their Koran press releases are in Korean language. But my guess - $1000 will be enough...

How often does your mother travel to Korea? If you have a problem requiring service, would you be satisfied with sending it back there for repairs?

Its my understanding samsung DSLRs come with an international warranty?
And also its been a longer warranty duration that Pentax for the GX1S, 1L and GX10?
If thats the case I don't think it would matter if it was purchased overseas.

Can someone confirm the international warranty of the GX10/GX1S?

Battery charger plug is different but thats a minor issue.

price of GX20

hello, this is MIRiyA from South Korea.

Samsung GX-20 price of CJ mall below:

1. GX-20 with 2GB SD and strap
1,250,000 won

2. GX-20 with 18-55 II and 2GB SD and strap
1,350,000 won

3. GX-20 with 18-55 II and 50-200 and 2GB SD and strap
1,480,000 won

4. GX-20 with 18-55 II and 50-200 and Vertical Grip and 2GB SD and strap
1,580,000 won


1,250,000 won is $1,320(USD)

looks little bit expansive, but it will be drop soon.

Thanks for the info!
It looks like the UK price is set to be lower than the equivalent in Korea, which seems to be bizarre pricing.
I was hoping to get it cheaper...

This may mean i'd be better off for now getting a faster better normal zoom, 35-40mm compact prime and a flashgun

Still, I prefer to buy cameras at my local store. They have proven to be not that much more expensive on bodies in the past.
