On page 2, you mention about the grooved ring and how it unscrews to show some sort of adapter thread, but you didn't elaborate any further...

What, if anything, does the adapter thread allow you to do? Can you change the lens or is it just for ambient light screens etc?

So how does the photo quality compare to the Panasonic LX7?

Excellent review. The ISO performance seems remarkably high for a compact.

I had one of these, and out of the countless compact, DSLRs, micro4/3rds and phone cameras I have owned, it was THE best camera I ever owned. Got superb shots in all conditions, from bright daylight to night time. The fast lens and flip screen made it an ideal street and portrait camera. Video quality was like the stills, clean and smooth. Audio quality was also way better than other video cameras I have owned.

I sold it to buy the EX3F that I assume was due to launch soon (2015 or so) with 4K video etc, but instead, Samsung gave up and pulled out of the non phone camera market! So am going to try to track down another EX2F as nothing I have bought since has matched it's all conditions image quality.

Samsung got a lot of things right with this camera and should have had the confidence to continue. If they had added a viewfinder to a follow up model, it would have provided a good reason to 'upgrade' from phone cameras that no matter how good today lack the ability to compose a shot covertly or in bright sunlight.
