GH4 vs. Samsung NX1

Has anyone on here had a chance to review or test, or study the specs, for the Samsung NX1 cameras? I'm impressed by it but wondering if its AVI and MP4 formats are worth the investment. How does MP4 stand up to the GH4 AVCHD codec. And why in the world is anyone using the AVI format?

Andrew Reid did some side by side testing of the NX1, LX100, GH4 and 5D Mark "old" at the end of this NX1 video:

I am a GH4 owner, and if I had to make a buying decision today, I might have bought the NX1 for its larger sensor. The only downside for me is the 30 minute continuous recording limit.

Now that the GH4 has been marked down to $1498 to undercut the NX1's $1499 price, the decision is even tougher!

Best,

Yes, this is all well and good but how does one EDIT with a codec that nothing recognises or decodes? Is there a tool out there that can play or transcode HEVC or H.265 and if so where is it so that we can actually start cutting this amazing 4K material.

Here are a couple of the h.265 converters NX1 shooters are using with good results:
