I don't see why there are multiple switches on the zooms
One switch against zoom creep?

It's a repost...

according to this japanese translation it should come with 3 pancakes...

Translated version of http://www.digitalcamera.jp/

If it stands up to the expectations than it is going to be a real seller...
Three pancakes? One of them 21 mm? Hmmm... you don't say. I wish I knew of a lens maker that offered a trio of pancake lenses designed for a APS-C sensor, one of which was 21 mm.

If Samsung isn't using Pentax to make these lenses, at least we know whose style they're copying

If you read the whole gibberish paragraph, it obviously said "3 types of lense, one of which is a pancake from the photo". Right above that sentense, it said the reps were not answering any questions.

So the reporter made that 3 lenses comment purely on the flayer photo.

Only one is needed for auto/manual focus, which makes me think that these zooms are in-lens stabilized ones, something Pentax has no experience in.
No experience? Maybe but AFAIK they have a bunch of patents covering those..

Alright, thanks for the correction. That would make more sense. I understand one pancake lens, but I wouldn't expect Samsung to bring out three at launch with other holes in the lineup to worry about.

At least that's one more pancake than Panasonic. I just want a wide angle prime.

Oh, they do? Didn't know about that. But I guess it does stand to reason that they'd get their bases covered by having tech for in-body stabilization and in-lens stabilization.

Well, that's an idea.
