Announced alongside the NX1000 and NX20, the NX210 is a direct replacement to the NX200 and actually adds very little. It boasts the same 20.3 megapixel sensor as its predecessor and essentially the same styling. Although not an upgrade, the sensor is quite competitive and provides very good image quality through ISO 3200. The NX lens lineup is also slowly growing and, while not as extensive as micro 4/3, is right in line with Sony's E-mount. What sets the NX210, as well as the NX1000 and NX20, apart is the inclusion of built-in wireless. They are the first high-end, non compact cameras to have this feature and instantly made Nikon's D3200, with its optional $70 wireless accessory, look a bit silly. On the other side of the coin, reviews note very poor buffer-clearing and write times, with write times approaching ten seconds after a burst in both RAW and JPG. If you're already invested in the NX system you're probably interested, but if you don't need wireless there are better mirrorless cameras out there.
