The problem with the NX10 is not the size, but the design. It just looks so flimsy and utilitarian. I'm sure it's fine to use, but from a design stand point I don't know too many people that would choose it over the E-P1 or even the G-F1. Seeing the name Samsung stuck on the prism hump doesn't help either. I think of TV's when I hear that name, not Cameras (Sony has the same issue, should have kept the Minolta name). They should do like Panasonic does and brand their cameras with a term similar to Lumix.
Well we used to say that about Sony as well.
Ask 'Joe on the street' what he'd buy, and he'd think first about Samsung/Sony. If the guy knows a tad bit about photo, he will think Canikon, but only then.

Do you think any of kids at school know anything about Canon/Nikon? They don't. Samsung, Sony (but less than 3 years ago), iPod, iPhone (yeah, Apple they dunno about it.. crazy heh?), they know about, for sure.

When you ask them if they have an MP3 reader they will answer they have a lot better: an MP4 reader. Yeah, cheap chinese crap but they don't get it obviously. And they don't care.

Having just gotten done with school, I can assure you that all the kids who would be inclined to buy anything beyond their camera phone know what Canon is. Most of them know Nikon too, and associate it with Ashton Kutcher. Pentax? Not so much, sadly.

Ah, well the situation is a better (or not?) in your part of the world it seems.
Pentax isn't well known, nothing new. Even my colleagues (which means usually around 40-50 years old) don't even know they still exist .

Well, nothing new

IMO the size of the NX is OK as a first camera from that system.
They can reduce the size quite much with a EP-1/GF1 like camera, and still boast APS-C sensor.
