Samsung Nx upgrade the body or new lens?
I've got an 18 month old NX11 which is a great camera. I currently have the 16,30,60,18-200 lenses. I've been caught up in the 45mm lens frenzy but have just thought... £240 for a great lens but hey I've no real reason to buy it right now apart from the appealing f/1.8 (but the 30mm is only around 1/3 stop slower)... so I started thinking of buying a better body with a higher spec instead, ie the nx20 (good reviews)..I can get it for £400 including the 18-55mm. Assuming I can sell the nx11 body + 18-55 for circa £200 on eBay, wouldn't it be a more sensible purchase???
As ever, thanks in anticipation (though I do appreciate this is more of a dslr website)

Re: Samsung Nx upgrade the body or new lens?
My personal rule is to never buy a new body, if there's some other piece of gear I want that costs less. Bodies depreciate faster and get replaced more often than any other piece of the system. So if there's no lens/flash/tripod gear you want that costs less than £200, then I'd say go for it.
