The NX200 includes a flash in the standard kit.

Nor NX200 nor NEX-5 hasn't built in flash. They are included in the kit and can be mounted on the camera.
Among other advantages of Samsung NX series the biggest one is an excellent lens roadmap, especially 3 very sharp pancakes which make the camera very light and compact.
NX200 is a clear winner of this contest.

Hi Dave, good catch, you're right he Samsung NX200 does not have a built in flash, I'll get the specs updated.  As far as the price - Snapsort shows prices from actual retailers, and thats the best price its seen so far, it looks like the NX200 is not widely available yet.

I am pretty sure the Samsung NX200 does not have a built in flash.  On the bright side, the actual price is only about $899.

The biggest advantage of the Samsung is the traditional controls.  The Sony takes a lot of getting used to.
